Skincare brand increases ad views via sponsorship

Nivea España (@nivea_es) is the Spanish account of prominent skincare brand Nivea, a company with more than 130 years of experience in the personal care industry. Building on this heritage, Nivea continues to innovate and lead the way with new products. 

Campaign objective

In the lead up to summer, Nivea España wanted to spread the word that its sun protection products are free of the potentially harmful chemicals oxybenzone and octinoxate. In order to get the message out to the right people, Nivea used sponsored pre-roll video ads to appear before partner content such as Elle and Cosmopolitan magazines.


The campaign targeted women aged 25–49 years old with an interest in beauty, well-being, skincare and the environment.
