Specialty chemicals provider Lubrizol has announced that its Active Organics and Lipotec skin care actives units will be combined and operate under a single name, Lipotec USA, effective immediately.

Lubizol acquired both companies in a bid to expand its skin care offerings portfolio and began promoting Active Organics under the Lipotec Umbrella in 2015 to address the changing consumer demands in the skin care market.

Lipotec USA will be located at the Active Organics headquarters in Lewisville, Texas. Active Organics is a provider of natural extracts and performance ingredients while Lipotec is a leader in active ingredients for skin care.
