Lipotec™ 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 – merged as one team to provide a complete product portfolio to the cosmetic industry.
The 3DforScience team has produced a video explaining the importance of LUMICEASE™ blue ingredient by Lipotec. LUMICEASE™ acts as an anti-aging, protecting, lightening, anti-wrinkle and repair active. Obtained through biotechnology from one of the most radiation-resistant microorganisms, it activates opsin on the skin and promotes adaptive responses which help prepare the skin for future exposure to light. It also protects and repairs the skin from solar and artificial blue light-induced damage, minimizing the main signs of photoaging. It helps to minimize the main signs of both digital and solar aging, showing decrease in the number of spots as well as reduction in the not-yet-visible spots (UV spots).
LUMICEASE™ blue ingredient can be used in all skin care and sun care formulations. This grade is COSMOS approved and Halal-certified active ingredient. LUMICEASE™ blue ingredient won the Best Green Ingredient ‘Silver’ Award at in-cosmetics Global 2019.
LUMICEASE™ blue ingredient activates opsins on the skin and promotes adaptive responses such as the induction of lipid accumulation, DNA repair pathways and antioxidant defenses, which help prepare the skin for the future exposure to light. It is a ferment extract obtained through biotechnology from a radiation-resistant microorganism.
After its launch, the commitment to nature remains via a collaboration with an NGO dedicated to the conservation of the aquatic ecosystem of the area from which the ingredient was isolated.
In this way the 3DForScience team joined the Lipotec team to create this great video, in order to convey the wonderful formulation LUMICEASE™ blue ingredient, its benefits and sources, its great contributions to the world of cosmetics and the environment for the present and future.
