NIVEA also cares for and respects our planet. We continuously research better, more sustainable ways to formulate and produce our skincare and have done so for many decades. As one of the longest-standing skincare brands, we use our wealth of experience and expertise to promote sustainability in our industry. We do not carry out any animal tests on cosmetic products or their ingredients or instruct them - unless this is mandatory by law. Animal tests have been banned for cosmetic products in the EU since 2004 and for all ingredients of these products since 2013. Naturally, Beiersdorf sticks to this obligation and has long since actively avoided animal testing worldwide, whenever legally possible. We have been committed to the development and international acceptance of alternative testing methods for more than 35 years. Our determination to make animal testing unnecessary on a global scale is part of this commitment.
