1. Is too much showering or bathing harmful to my skin?
Developed by experts, all NIVEA Body Cleansing products contain a special combination of ingredients to give the skin a cared feeling and help to protect your skin from moisture loss. Showering or bathing is not damaging for the skin. However, depending on the skin type and the quality and temperature of the water, dermatologists often recommend not showering or bathing more than twice a day in order to preserve the skin’s own balance. Sensitive and dry skin types should also pay attention to their skin reaction in order to set their personal shower and bath limit.
2. How do I know what product is right for me?
Choosing the right body cleansing product for you should start with defining your own needs and your favourite scents. If you long for a feeling of freshness then the NIVEA Shower Clay Fresh Ginger and Basil is a great option. For more specific needs (peeling, very dry or sensitive skin), NIVEA In-Shower Rich Body Lotion will provide appropriate care. For care that the whole family can enjoy, opt for NIVEA Crème Soft Care Soap or NIVEA Rich Moisture Soft Shower Cream.
3. How much bath products should be used when there is no information on the label?
A small "squirt" (max. 30ml) in the water is sufficient, but the product can be individually dosed depending on the required intensity (e.g. amount of foam) of the product.
4. Why do bars of soap develop cracks?
Unfortunately, this problem can occur more or less in any bar of soap after long-term use. These cracks form when the bar of soap is wetted then subjected to long dry periods without routine use. But cracks do not affect the cleansing performance of the product. The only result of the cracks might be an aesthetic problem if dirt particles accumulate in the cracks which can be interpreted as dark stains in the soap bar.
