NIVEA SUN Protect & Moisture Sunscreen Lotions care for your skin in more ways than one, combining UV protection with moisturising care. Highly effective UVA & UVB filters shield the skin from sun damage and harmful UV rays. Plus, the moisturising sunscreen formula with Vitamin E and Panthenol, help keeps the skin hydrated for up to 24 hours.
Summer is on its way (yes!). And while we crave those long hot days and balmy evenings enjoying the beach, bush, and BBQ, the New Zealand sun can be unforgivingly harsh.
The fact that we have beautiful clear skies with little air pollution actually increases the UV rays that reach us here in NZ (along with our proximity to the sun in summer and that o-zone depletion!). Here in New Zealand we also have the highest rate of melanoma skin cancer. So it is very important to do all that you can to protect yourself and your family from the harmful effects of the sun, especially from September through to April.
Protecting your skin from the sun with sunscreen, clothing and shade is important. Moisturising your skin can also help to maintain or repair your skin’s protective barrier.
Why does our skin need moisture?
Without moisture your skin may become dry and vulnerable to sun damage. Un-moisturised skin can result in dry, cracked, or broken skin, which can reduce your skin’s protective barrier function and make it more vulnerable to environmental factors, like UV rays. So moisturised skin is less vulnerable to sun damage compared to broken skin.

Protect your skin, love the beach
NIVEA know that reefs are suffering at the hands of global climate change due to rising ocean temperatures, as the stress of warm water causes corals to bleach. In addition, studies have shown that the UV filters Oxybenzone and Octinoxate can have a negative impact on coral reefs. As a result, the Hawaii Reef Bill proposes to ban the two UV filters Oxybenzone and Octinoxate from January 2021. NIVEA SUN sunscreens do not contain these two UV filters.
