Published on 2015-05-19. Author : SpecialChem

CLEVELAND -- The Lubrizol Corporation announces that Active Organics® will be promoted as a brand under the Lipotec umbrella, effective immediately. The 2011 acquisition of the Active Organics business provided Lubrizol entry into the botanical extracts and natural performance ingredients technology platforms and an enhanced presence in the natural ingredients market. In 2012, Lubrizol purchased Lipotec SA to further support the company's strategy to improve their portfolio by adding high-performance, claims-driving ingredients based on synthetic peptides, biotech and molecular science.

Joining the two companies' product lines creates a portfolio of industry-leading technologies that will provide customers expanded access to innovative ingredients, formulations and applications knowledge. All Active Organics brands including Actiphyte™ botanical extracts; Aromaphyte™ fragrance ingredients; Actiscrub™ physical exfoliants; Activera™ aloe ingredients; and Advanced Botanical Ingredients will be promoted under the Lipotec umbrella. Additionally, Lipotec branding will now include a line that identifies it as a Lubrizol company. The combined expertise in polymer technologies, biochemical actives and botanical extracts from all three company brands makes it possible to deliver unique, innovative and more natural solutions to the continuously changing and demanding skin care market.

Lubrizol's mission in skin care is to provide customers with the best products, comprehensive assistance and the necessary resources and services, all in the fastest and most effective way possible.
