Over a century ago, the world’s very first skin care cream was born. Known by many as the ‘little blue tin’, NIVEA Creme is as popular today as it was back then, an icon of beauty and care with an unmistakable scent and caring formulation for a multitude of uses for all types of skin.


NIVEA is one of the few creams that works well on my skin during winter! I’ve used the product for years and I absolutely love that they are trying to make a difference in the community.

NIVEA recently launched a large-scale national initiative ‘Trust in the Care from NIVEA’ which celebrates the beauty of caring for ourselves and others.

Every time a consumer buys a NIVEA skin care product it enables the brand to give back to a rural community in KwaZulu-Natal.
Care is at the heart of the NIVEA brand – not only providing world class skin care for beautiful and healthy feeling skin but also caring for the wellbeing of people. It is a brand that is committed to creating a life that is truly worth living, both now and in the future. For the last 2,5 years, NIVEA South Africa has supported a community situated in Umtwalume, KwaZulu-Natal, through financial support of Thanda, a non-profit organisation.

Thanda provides valuable support for the local community through Early Childhood Development (ECD), After school and Agricultural programmes.


Through Thanda, children not only receive a hot meal and participate in educational and stimulating programmes, but also find a safe place to play.

Funding from NIVEA has helped Thanda to continue their programmes. Amongst other milestones, in 2016 Thanda was able to serve 73 347 meals to children and the centre can remain consistently open 7 days per week compared to 5 days a week previously.

The new NIVEA Thanda ECD Centre will soon be opened to care for 90 children under the age of four. The centre provides young children access to a fun and engaging programme whilst their parents or caregivers are at work, thus ensuring they are given a solid foundation in life with the right stimulation and nutrition to enable the development of critical neural pathways.

Thank you for purchasing NIVEA, you helped make a difference.
