The history of beauty products Nivea was born in Hamburg more than a century ago, in 1911, by the hand of three visionaries: Oscar Troplowitz, pharmacist; Isaac Lifschütz, chemist and Paul Gerson Unna, dermatologist. The second of them developed the so-called Eucerit, an emulsion that made it possible for water and fat to become a pioneering cosmetic: cream. Because of its color, the combination of the world-famous and iconic name of this brand came from Latin: nix (snow) and nivis (snow). The cream of the blue tin - which was not always that color - has been, and is, a symbol that has passed from generation to generation.
