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 - Lubrizol’s company leader in natural extracts and performance ingredients – joined forces as one team to provide a complete product range 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. The most known example of Lipotec’s expertise is ARGIRELINE® peptide, the first topical alternative to recognized cosmetic procedures against expression wrinkles.
