Nivea Skin Care
Nivea was born thanks to founder Dr. Oscar Tropowitz. The original Nivea Crème was introduced as the first oil-in-water-based long-lasting cream in the world in 1911. The name of Nivea originates from the Latin word "nivis'; which means snow. The cream was thought to be named for its snowy white color. Nivea gained extreme popularity with women because of its lengthy shelf life. Prior to Nivea, skin creams were made primarily from animal and vegetable fat so they decomposed rapidly when the fats became rancid.
