We all love sun, swimming in the sea and relaxing at the beach. To highlight the importance of sun protection, NIVEA worked with artist Thomas Leveritt to make the effects of UV rays visible with a special camera technique. So don’t forget: take care and give care with NIVEA SUN.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do sun protection and a fabulous tan go together? 
It's always been a worldwide wish to use a reliable sun protection product during sun exposure without having to miss out on a beautiful, natural tan. With NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze, this is now possible. Thanks to the Pro Melanin extract in the formula, the skin cells´ melanin production is activated significantly, while the skin is protected from UVA/UVB rays. Finally, reliable sun protection and a beautiful tan can work together!

What is Special in the NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range? 
NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze has two desirable effects: first of all, it protects the skin from harmful UV rays, but it also activates the individual, natural tanning process – without being a self-tanner. NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze cleverly unites sun protection and long-lasting tanning. When the skin is exposed to UV rays, it starts a protective mechanism by naturally producing the brown pigment called melanin. Melanin gives the skin its colour and is a natural protective shield for the cell. Getting a tan is actually part of the skin´s protection mechanism. NIVEA SUN has integrated an active ingredient that activates this simple yet brilliant natural skin mechanism. The key ingredient of the unique NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range is the Pro Melanin extract, which significantly activates the skin’s melanin production within your skin. Even after sunbathing, the natural melanin production remains activated. NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze products support the skin’s natural ability to develop its long-lasting tan, while providing reliable skin protection. 

How do I use NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze products? 
You can use the NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze products like any other sun protection product. Apply generously before exposure to the sun. Make sure to always apply enough sunscreen to evenly cover your skin. Reapply regularly to maintain adequate sun protection, especially after bathing, towel drying or sweating. The Protect & Bronze Tan Prolonging After Sun Lotion is also used like any other after sun product. It soothes the skin while activating natural melanin production to support a long-lasting tan.

How can NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze be the most effective?
The Protect & Bronze sunscreen's protective filters start working immediately upon application.

Is the NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range dermatologically approved?
Yes, this is a standard test for all NIVEA products.

Is NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range suitable for sensitive skin?

NIVEA SUN also offers sun care products for skin types with special requirements. For sensitive skin, we recommend the NIVEA SUN Protect & Sensitive Sun Lotion.

Is NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range just for women?

No, anyone who wants to enjoy a beautiful, long-lasting tan can use the product.

Are the NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze products self-tanners?

No, self-tanners are products which contain an ingredient that works on the upper layer of the skin to form a brownish color, which has no sun protection effect. These can result in patchy colouring of the skin if applied unevenly and lead to an unnatural skin colour. The NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range works differently. The pro melanin plant extract is a plant-based ingredient, which acts in the lower layers of the skin and triggers the production of melanin there. The NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range protects your skin and activates its melanin production, for a beautiful and fully natural tan.
