ACTIGUARD™ advanced botanical ingredient 

INCI Name:

Sorghum Bicolor Bran Extract (and) Glycerin (and) Water (and) Potassium Sorbate

ACTIGUARD™ advanced botanical ingredient is a sustainable natural extract obtained from the bran of the sorghum cereal, which is highly concentrated in bioactive phytochemicals. It reduces the release of inflammatory mediators that damage tissues and cause irritation, therefore relieving sensitive skin. This product can be incorporated into daily care formulations to prevent the development of a sensitive skin condition. In addition, it is appropriate for specific treatments for overly reactive skin and also where it is desirable for minimizing inflammation and tissue damage.



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.
