NIVEA knows skin …
… and we love it.
THE ESSENCE OF SKINCARE
In our ingredients, we distinguish between “Significant” and “Signature” substances. “Significant” ingredients are the everyday heroes of the cosmetics world. They serve basic functions and help our products care for your skin in the best, most reliable way. As texturizers and emulsifiers, they make our products smooth, pleasant to the touch and easy to apply. As preservatives, they keep your NIVEA products fresh and safe to use for a long time.
“Signature” ingredients are the superheroes that add the special benefits to our products. Some of our signatures – like Q10 – are NIVEA discoveries that revolutionized the cosmetics world. All of them help our products deliver extra special care by enhancing skin’s natural function. Nothing more, nothing less.
Whether signature or significant: any ingredient that goes into our products has been tested rigorously and beyond the scope of regulatory requirements. We do this to ensure that each of our products meets the highest standards and justifies the trust you place in NIVEA.
