The Nivea brand is manufactured by the German firm of Beiersdorf of Hamburg,and as hard as it is to quantify I feel that old world quality shows in this A/S. I often come home from sailing or fishing and will use this balm to cool off my face,relive wind and sun burn.
There are a couple of other formulations of this product - I will not try them based on the heavy menthol/minty content.If you are looking for that type of cool that formulation might be one to try.
The Sensitive skin version has just the faintest hint of chamomile that diminishes quickly- The balm is virtually scentless.I rated this a 10 for scent as I want none in this type of product.
This is a very good product that I will continue to use, it leaves my face feeling smooth and tack free, relives the dry tight feeling and is quite economical.
