With such global popularity, few would imagine the humble origins of ponds. Ponds was invented in the United States. Pharmacist Theron T. Pond made the ponds extract from the bark of the witch hazel tree. He had it patented for its use in treating minor wounds and skin ailments.
Theron Pond and his associates founded the T.T. Pond company in 1849 and from there. Theron’s surname i.e. ‘Ponds’ stuck to the brand.
Pond’s has come a long way since then with its presence in over 56 countries. Pond’s cold cream has been in use for more than 100 years and is still quite in demand. Besides the cold cream, ponds has diversified in manufacturing various cosmetic products such as skin cleansing face washes, anti-aging serums, masks, powders and skin lightening creams.
Ponds powder even today is commonly used in many homes. Ponds presently are a part of the Unilever group. In India, Ponds Anti aging series has been a huge success. The wrinkle lift cream containing white tea extract and Vitamin B3 helps you to get rid of wrinkles. Ponds powder keeps you feeling fresh all day long and absorbs sweat pretty easily.

And for the winter, Ponds cream still continues to be a quick fix for dried and chapped skin. It keeps the skin smooth and can be used by all your family members as it is tolerated by all skin types.
