1What is Stress Sweating?
2Do I need protection against Stress Sweating?
Stressful situations such as being under time pressure, important meetings and even first dates, occur in everyday life and happen to everyone. (Take a look at our global stress survey to learn more about how people embrace stress differently around the world). Such stressful situations are often exactly those in which we want to look and feel our best and we surely don’t want to worry about sweat patches or body odour.

But: Stress sweating is an inherent body reaction to such stressful situations, meaning that it happens to everyone – though to a different extent from person to person. Compared to sweating due to heat, it is characterized by the facts that it happens quicker, is independent from outside temperature and leads to a more intense body odour – making it even harder to control.

So yes, stress sweating happens to everyone. But with NIVEA Stress Protect Deodorant, you are well protected to take on every stress test!
3How does NIVEA Stress Protect work?
4Does NIVEA Stress Protect also protect me against “normal” sweating, e.g. while doing sports?

Yes, NIVEA Stress Protect delivers its trusted protection also against the “usual” or thermoregulatory sweating due to temperature or physical activity. It has been scientifically proven to protect effectively against thermal as well as stress sweating for 48h.

5What is the Trier Social Stress Test?
6Does this Deodorant lead to more irritations?

No, like for every deodorant from NIVEA the skin tolerance of the new NIVEA Stress Protect Deodorants has been proven by means of dermatological tests.  In several studies which were run during the development of the formulas the formulas with avocado oil revealed their very good skin compatibility.
