1DOES NIVEA TEST ON ANIMALS?
2DOES BEIERSDORF GERMANY TEST ON ANIMALS?
The manufacturers of NIVEA products, Beiersdorf Germany, does not test on animals. Animal testing has been completely banned for all cosmetic products in the EU since 2004, and for all the ingredients of these products since 2013. Beiersdorf, the organisation behind the NIVEA brand, complies with this law and has long done without animal testing whenever it was possible.
3WHAT IS ANIMAL TESTING?
4WHAT ARE ALTERNATIVES TO ANIMAL TESTING?
Beiersdorf is actively working on the development and recognition of alternative methods to animal testing. For more than 20 years we have engaged with expert panels and associations on in-vitro procedures and are one of the leading and most well-known and accepted research companies in the world.

We are working together with external partners such as the European cosmetics association, Cosmetics Europe, and the EPAA (European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing), toward the development and recognition of alternative testing methods that will replace animal testing.

We are also actively advocating for the worldwide acceptance of existing animal test-free alternative methods by respective authorities. Further, we support both in terms of personnel and financially, the scientific efforts to fill the gaps where alternative methods are not yet available.
