Why did you decide to use argan oil in order to achieve an extra nourishing effect?
Argan oil has been known for its beautifying properties for centuries. The precious oil from the argan nuts is packed with skin-beneficial compounds: essential fatty acids with a beneficial effect on the skin’s barrier, potent antioxidant polyphenols, and high amount of vitamin E – even higher than in olive oil. Unsaturated fatty acid components of argan oil have a beneficial effect on the integrity of the epidermis. The skin’s barrier function depends mainly on the integrity of the epidermis. This is how the formula containing argan oil protects skin from dryness from within.
What is so special about the new NIVEA Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle + Extra-Nourishing products?
The range offers three high-quality anti-wrinkle products, tailor-made for dry to very dry skin. The new formula combines the nourishing effect of organic argan oil, which is rich in omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids, with the new NIVEA Q10 active ingredient, which is now 100% skin-identical through a special natural-yeast fermentation process. The new formula was tested in vitro, and results showed that it offers a natural aging defense and protective anti-oxidant, while also providing nourishment to the skin.
What is the difference between the NIVEA Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle + Extra-Nourishing Day Creme and the NIVEA Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle + Extra-Nourishing Pampering Oil?
The two products work in perfect symbiosis. While the day cream provides an effective base that moisturizes the skin throughout the day, the oil provides the extra care needed for very dry skin. The oil strengthens the skin barrier and gives a luxurious, soft skin feeling. The oil can also be used in the evening and be mixed into the foundation for an extra radiant effect.
Are the products also suitable for very dry but younger skin?
Yes, they are. When your skin needs an extra kick, because it is very dry, or on colder days when skin tends to be dryer, simply mix one or more oil drops with your favorite NIVEA Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle + Extra-Nourishing product.
