Lubrizol Consolidates Skin Care Units Under Lipotec USA Banner

(BRK.A), (BRK.B)

Berkshire Hathaway’s Specialty chemicals company Lubrizol is consolidating its Active Organics and Lipotec skin care units, and giving them a new name, Lipotec USA.

In 2011, Lubrizol acquired Active Organics, a manufacturer and supplier of naturally-derived specialty ingredients including botanical extracts and natural performance ingredients for the personal care industry.

The following year, Lubrizol acquired Lipotec SA, a leader in the development, manufacturing and sale of personal care ingredients based on three core technologies: peptide-based active cosmetic ingredients, delivery systems and biotechnology products.

Lipotec USA, Inc. will be located at the current address of Active Organics, Inc. in Lewisville, Texas.
