SLEEP WITH VITAMIN C
For the first time ever, NIVEA is combining two powerful ingredients: energizer coenzyme Q10 and highly potent, pure Vitamin C.
This combination – as found in NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Skin Sleep Cream and Eye Treatment – increases the oxygen absorption of skin by up to 50 percent and supports the skin's natural regeneration process during sleep. In the morning, your complexion is recharged and appears more awake, fresher and livelier.
THE POWER OF PURE VITAMIN C
A highly effective antioxidant, pure Vitamin C is a pick-me-up for the skin and a strong ally against free radicals. Because free radicals – which are generated through UV radiation and environmental pollutants – are one of the main causes of skin aging.
THE POWER OF COENZYME Q10
Coenzyme Q10, which occurs naturally in skin, functions as an energy provider for the skin. Q10 supports cell regeneration and collagen synthesis, helping the skin stay smooth and fight wrinkles.
YOUR RE-ENERGIZING ROUTINE FOR A RADIANT COMPLEXION
Your skin has its own biorhythm and needs a 24 hour routine to be protected and re-energized with the right day, night and eye care.
During the day, your skin needs protection from environmental influences and UV rays. The new NIVEA Q10plusC Energy Day Care with SPF 15 is ideal for preventing wrinkles and helping tired skin look fresh again.
The skin has a much better capacity to take up moisture overnight. This repairs skin damage, recharges the skin's own anti-oxidant capacities and replenishes its energy reservoirs. NIVEA Q10plusC Energy Skin Sleep Cream with Q10 and pure Vitamin C is specially formulated to let the skin breathe “deeply” overnight* and to effectively support its regenerative processes.
For all-round skin care, you need more than a day and a night cream. This is because the skin around your eyes is particularly thin and sensitive. The new NIVEA Q10+C Energy Skin Eye Cream provides extra moisture, helps to prevent fine lines and wrinkles and reenergizes the skin so your eyes sparkle with liveliness in the morning.

ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY NIVEA EXPERTS
For 55 years, the NIVEA experts have been researching and innovating in anti-aging care, studying the skin’s natural processes and developing formulas that support them, working with the skin’s biology. Discover our answers to all your questions about the best anti-aging and re-energizing formulas for beautiful and radiant skin.
1. What makes NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy so different?
Free radicals from the environment, such as UV light and air pollutants damage our skin and age it prematurely. They attack cellular membranes and disrupt proper functioning of the cells. In order to protect our skin from free radicals, we need anti-oxidants. NIVEA Q10plusC Energy combines two highly effective antioxidants: skin's own Q10 and vitamin C. This synergistic combination offers better protection against cellular stress and free radicals.
2. How does coenzyme Q10 work on the skin?
Q10 is a co-enzyme that occurs naturally in skin cells and functions in two ways: as an energy provider and as an anti-oxidant. As a necessary component of energy production in skin cells, Q10 supports all essential processes in the cells from cell regeneration to synthesis of collagen. In addition, Q10 anti-oxidants protect against free radicals, which damage skin cells and are one cause of premature skin aging. The amount of Q10 in the skin decreases over the years, however. The NIVEA Q10plusC Energy care line replenishes the Q10 level of the skin.
3. How does Vitamin C boost the positive effects of coenzyme Q10?
The co-enzyme Q10 is even more effective in combination with Vitamin C. This highly effective combination protects skin cells, supports skin regeneration and increases skin cell oxygen uptake. Studies have proven that the combination of Q10 and Vitamin C boost metabolism more than Q10 on its own. This makes it possible for the skin to breathe “deeply” at night.
Pure Vitamin C is a highly effective anti-oxidant and displays multiple positive effects on the skin. In addition, pure Vitamin C improves skin structure by strengthening the papilla density of the skin. This enables the skin to transport more nutrients and oxygen to the dermis and, in this way, also helps prevent the formation of wrinkles.
5. What is the best way to use and preserve care products with Vitamin C?
Even though the aluminium tube protects the formula against oxygen and light exposure, the product should be closed tightly immediately after every application, so that the formula has as little contact with air as possible. Besides that, we recommend wiping the nozzle after every application before closing the tube.
6. NIVEA Q10plusC Energy Skin Sleep Cream lets skin cells breathe deeply. Why is this so important?
The combination of energizer co-enzyme Q10 and pure Vitamin C is capable of increasing so-called “cellular respiration”. Beiersdorf Skin Research has demonstrated this in elaborate studies on skin cells. The process enables better supply of energy to the skin cells, which need it to perform necessary metabolic functions like repair processes. This helps the skin counteract the appearance of premature aging effects.
7. Ascorbic acid, better known as Vitamin C, is an acid. Will it not harm the skin?
Ascorbic acid is a weak acid and the pH-value of the formula is in the neutral range. This makes the formula with the Vitamin C concentration used by us both highly effective and very agreeable to the skin at the same time. As with any NIVEA product this formula has been extensively tested and its high skin compatibility has been established in scientific studies.
8. Why is it so important to use different products for night, day and eye care?
Every day in a woman’s life is different and has its own rhythm. And that's why we need 24 hour skin care: during the day, the skin needs protection from environmental influences and UV rays. By contrast, at night it needs active ingredients that support its regeneration processes. As for the skin around the eyes, it needs more intensive hydration and protection in a very light texture, because it is very sensitive and tends to form wrinkles more easily.
