Why did NIVEA decide to use natural origin fibers to make their cleanser wipes biodegradable?
As we are committed to providing high-quality, trustworthy products and to continuously reducing our environmental impact, we are striving to use renewable resources as much as possible in our products. Nature matters to us, and
caring for it is the commitment behind sustainability.
Therefore, for the tissue of our NIVEA biodegradable face wipes, we use viscose, which is made of renewable material.
How are these NIVEA face wipes delivering biodegradability?
Our new wipes are made from biodegradable fibers of
natural origin. The material is biodegradable since it can
decompose physically and biologically until it becomes carbon dioxide, biomass and water.
Does biodegradability mean the new facial wipes are compostable?
No, we want to emphasize not to dispose of the wipes in the compost. Since the cleanser wipes are usually dirty after usage, and we can’t be sure if those other cosmetic
products contain microplastic or other non-biodegradable materials, they should always be disposed of in the garbage bin.
