appreciating nature with vegan skincare

Vegan Skincare



The term “vegan cosmetics” refers to skincare products, make-up, and toiletries, such as body and face washes, that do not contain animal-derived ingredients. There are many ingredients, which are made from what animals produce, such as beeswax, honey or milk. When sourced responsibly, these ingredients are renewable solutions, which are not only gentle on your skin but also respectful to animals who made them. 

 At the same time, some ingredients can be made from by-products of livestock farming for food production. In this context, the treatment of animals concerns many consumers. There are also environmental issues, for example, deforestation to clear up more grazing land. With large-scale livestock farming significantly driving climate change, NIVEA takes these concerns seriously.

Does NIVEA offer vegan skincare?

For many people, animal-derived ingredients do not reflect the values of living in harmony with animals. That is why they look for alternatives, such as plant-based and vegan skincare products.

NIVEA offers a variety of vegan products. Our entire Naturally Good product range consists of vegan formulations, 100 percent free of animal-derived ingredients.

The recyclable bottles can be rolled up to squeeze out every last drop, and the empty packaging takes up less space in the recycling bin.
