Founded in 1987 in Barcelona, Spain, and acquired in 2012 by Lubrizol (Berkshire Hathaway company), Lipotec is a well-known worldwide expert in advanced active ingredients for skin and hair care. In 2014, Lipotec and Active Organics - Lubrizolís company leader in natural extracts and performance ingredients - merged as one team to provide a complete product portfolio to the cosmetic industry.

Lipotec researches, develops and manufactures innovative active ingredients for cosmetics, which are born out of the discovery of new mechanisms of biologic actions through two technology platforms:

  • Molecular Cosmetics: peptides, other small synthetic molecules, biotechnological and botanical active ingredients.
  • Delivery Systems: controlled release technologies for enhanced stability and bioavailability of the active ingredient.

The result is an unlimited source of active ingredients with proven efficacy to meet every need, which has led to numerous successful products and has positioned Lipotec as a leader in its category for the continuous advance of the cosmetic industry.

Since its incorporation into Lubrizol, Lipotec has become the Global Center of Expertise for Lubrizolís Skin Care division with a strong commitment to becoming a partner to its customers and empowering them with products and services that will accelerate their creativity and enhance their innovation. Leveraging our skin care science knowledge, we offer ingredients and formulation concepts that deliver a beautiful skin experience to the consumers.

CELLYNKAGE marine ingredient enhances both direct communication between adjacent cells and crosstalk among different skin layers, allowing the restoration of cell functioning and cutaneous homeostasis deteriorated by age. After the application of a cream with 2% ingredient on menopausal skin for 56 days the thickness of the epidermis increased by 15%, collagen density in the dermis by 2.4% and the skin surface homogeneity increased significantly by 7.9%. In addition, the microrelief structure improved by 113% when compared to placebo resulting in a more regular meshing and a better organised skin.
Rejuvenating effect for mature skin.


POLLUSHIELD functional ingredient offers protection against pollution provided by a polymer with metal chelating properties and a potent free radical scavenger. When treated with 5% ingredient, the skin exposed to urban pollution in China (Beijing) demonstrated almost no accumulation of metals as well as a greater antioxidative power and decreased lipid peroxides. An additional study also demonstrated the efficacy of POLLUSHIELD functional ingredient in easing the removal of microparticles from skin surface by applying a cream with 5% ingredient before exposure to pollution microparticles.
