South Africa’s number one face care brand, tried and tested by generations of women
Pond’s is a skincare brand sold in an affordable price bracket. The brand has a long heritage, dating back to the 1840s when the first product was sold in New York.
A rich heritage
The impressive track record of POND’S began when Theron T. Pond, a pharmacist from New York, introduced 'Pond's Golden Treasure' in 1846, a witch-hazel based wonder product. In 1886 the product was re-launched and in 1914 POND’S Cold Cream and Vanishing Cream marked the brand’s evolution to a beauty icon.
In the 1920’s, POND’S invented the Skin Care Regime, from giving tips on how to become more attractive, to informing women about the need to have a skin care ritual.
POND’S was also the first face care brand to be endorsed by 1920’s European queens, duchesses, American society beauties and Hollywood actresses who praised POND’S as a trusted face care brand. POND’S made it clear that they truly understood a woman’s need for beauty and romance.
Powerful international presence
By the early 1980s, POND’S reached out to more women who wanted effortless beauty by building a powerful international presence. In 1987, POND’S was purchased by Unilever and became known as a “Global Master Brand”. Today, POND’S continues to be a well-known and trusted leader in skin care in over 50 countries.
Ever evolving, by the 1990s POND’S quickly moved to the forefront of Colour Management development in Africa and Asia and had found breakthrough solutions to address the anti-ageing demands of women all over the world. Most recently, POND’S has launched products that include revolutionary new Intelligent Pro Cell Complex™ Technology that makes your skin act younger and Genactiv™ Technology that unlocks radiant skin! POND’S has dedicated itself to making cutting edge innovations so that women can experience effortless, natural and simple beauty.
From a tiny homemade laboratory to today's state-of-the-art POND’S Institute, the promise has remained the same: to deliver face care products that make a real difference to women's skin and the way they live their lives. POND’S creates a personal and unforgettable skin experience, one complexion at a time.
