For over 140 years, our Research & Development (R&D) colleagues have been exploring the complex processes of our skin. Their ambition: to create impactful skin care products that touch people’s lives around the world. A look at our company history shows that our skin research expertise is at the heart of the company – and our innovations are created at the interface of different disciplines. With the introduction of the dermocosmetic Eucerit (1900) and NIVEA Creme (1911), the first stable skin cream based on a water-in-oil emulsion, we at Beiersdorf already set important milestones in skin care thanks to our research power. But the introduction of ever new, revolutionary active ingredients, such as the wrinkle-reducing Coenzyme Q10 or the active ingredient thiamidol to combat hyperpigmentation, also underscores our innovative strength and role as pioneers in skin care and research.
