Q&A WITH DR. NILS PETERS

RESEARCH ACTIVE INGREDIENTS BODY CARE, BEIERSDORF

Sometimes understanding complex ingredients and scientific jargon around firming products is pretty tough to follow, often leaving us with more - rather than less - questions. That's why we asked Dr. Nils Peters to translate the science talk into simple and understandable terms.

1IN 1998, CO-ENZYME Q10 WAS INCORPORATED INTO A NIVEA SKIN CARE PRODUCT FOR THE FIRST TIME. TODAY, IT IS STILL A PROMINENT INGREDIENT IN MANY NIVEA PRODUCTS, ESPECIALLY THE FIRMING BODY RANGE. WHAT MAKES THIS INGREDIENT SO INTERESTING?
2BOTH THE NIVEA Q10 FIRMING BODY LOTION AND FIRMING BODY MILK FORMULAS ARE NOW FORMULATED WITH AN "ENERGY COMPLEX" WITH COENZYME Q10, L-CARNITINE AND CREATINE. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THESE THREE INGREDIENTS FOR THE FIRMING BODY LOTION AND MILK?

The formulation of Q10, Creatine and L-Carnitine,  can promote skin firmness and elasticity. Skin appears lifted and is reinforced through moisturization.

3What are the benefits of L-CARNITINE?
4CREATINE HAS BEEN KNOWN FOR MORE THAN 150 YEARS. WHAT’S ITS EFFECT ON SKIN ?

Creatine was discovered as a component of skeletal muscle in 1832 by the French chemist Michel Eugène Chevreul. Creatine is commonly used as a skin-conditioning agent and is known for its age-defying benefits.

5WHAT HAPPENS INSIDE THE SKIN WHEN CELLULITE APPEARS ON THE SURFACE?
6WHAT ARE THE REASONS FOR CELLULITE?
There are lots of different causes under discussion, from hormonal factors, genetic factors, predisposing factors to lifestyle factors. From a skin care view, the most important factor is weak tissue. Women in particular suffer from that problem, as their tissue is arranged in parallel - allowing skin to expand during pregnancy, but also allowing fat cells to expand without limit. Men on the other hand have crosswise arranged tissue that does not allow that expansion. Furthermore, women's upper skin layer is thinner then men's, so that dimples become more easily visible. Other causes of cellulite can be stress, too little movement, and an unhealthy diet.
7WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF LOTUS EXTRACT?

Q10 CELLULITE GEL

IMPROVE THE LOOK OF CELLULITE

q10_firming_cellulite

The Cellulite Gel actively firms the feeling of your skin and reduce the look of cellulite through moisturization. Cellulite results from over-enlarged fat cells in the skin, creating that typical dimpled look. These "dimples" are something we all try to avoid. That's why the benefits of Q10 have been enhanced with L-Carnitine and Lotus Extract.

NIVEA Q10 Cellulite Gel firms the feeling skin and reduces the look of cellulite within three weeks.

CELLULITE FACTS AND FALLACIES

A FEW INTERESTING INSIGHTS INTO CELLULITE

1FACT: MEN GET IT TOO
2MYTH: ONLY PEOPLE WHO ARE OVERWEIGHT GET CELLULITE

Although fat deposits cause cellulite, it is not only the amount of fat, but also the structure of connective tissue fibers that causes the formation of cellulite. The dimples appear at the points where the connective tissue adhesions prevent the skin from being pushed out by the accumulating fat. That's why cellulite can occur in women of all shapes and sizes. In fact, research shows that over 80% of all women have cellulite.

3MYTH: CELLULITE IS A MODERN CONDITION
4FACT: CELLULITE INCREASES WITH AGE

The collagen and elastic fibres decrease with ageing so the connective tissue becomes weaker and the chance of cellulite increases.
