From one man in a tiny home-made laboratory, to today's state-of-the-art R&D facilities led from Bangkok, Mumbai, New York and Tokyo, the Pond's promise has remained the same across 58 countries: to deliver products that make a real difference to women's skin and the way they live their lives.
The Pond’s story began in 1846 when Theron T. Pond, a pharmacist from Utica, New York, introduced a witch-hazel based wonder product, called ‘Pond’s Golden Treasure’. Forty years later it was re-launched as Pond’s Extract and then, in 1914, Pond’s Cold Cream and Vanishing Cream marked the brand’s evolution into a beauty icon.
Its reputation for style and beauty was enhanced by a series of endorsements by glamorous society women in the 1920s, while this image was underpinned by guarantees that Pond’s products protect and care for skin – as well as a real understanding of women’s beauty needs.
By the 1990s the face care market was responding to the introduction of products delivering unmet needs. Worldwide research meant that Pond's was at the forefront of colour management developments in Asia, while it also pioneered the use of AHAs for anti-ageing in the US. Cutting-edge innovation and an understanding of women's individual needs – and their desire for beautiful skin – have maintained Pond's strong position in a dynamic global arena.
The Pond’s range can care for any woman’s skin, whatever their needs.
Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser is a rich facial cleanser that deep-cleans pores to remove stubborn dirt and makeup, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and radiantly clean. We know how important moisturising daily is to keep skin looking young and healthy, which is why Pond’s offers a range of different moisturising products.
