Founded in 1987 in Barcelona, Spain, Lipotec is from July 2012 part of Lubrizol, a Berkshire Hathaway company. A global leader in the field of cosmetic active ingredients for skin and hair care, the company’s business is based on two core technologies:
Molecular cosmetics – Peptides, other small synthetic molecules and biotechnological active ingredients
Delivery systems – Controlled release technologies for enhanced stability and bioavailability of the active ingredient
Lipotec’s thorough focus in the discovery of innovative actives has resulted in numerous successful product launches over the years. This can be credited to the company’s highly-skilled team of experts, commitment to research, and understanding of key technologies such as Combinatorial Chemistry, Molecular Modeling and Biotechnology as well as a strong patent field.
