Work is Ponds Age Miracle?
It has been 162 years since Theron T. Pond, a Utica, New York pharmacist unveiled his witch-hazel based product, Pond’s Golden Treasure. As the success of the brand’s flagship product grew, additional products were introduced in accordance with Pond’s mission to “deliver products that make a real difference to women’s skin and the way they live their lives”.

By 1920, Pond’s had demonstrated its staying power in endorsements from many of New York society’s beautiful faces. It earned the reputation for products that understood women’s beauty practices and requirements. Pond’s evolution includes a broadening international reach with the merger between them and Chesebrough Manufacturing and later Unilever’s purchase of Chesebrough-Pond’s in 1987. As women’s needs and expectations changed so did Pond’s. The company’s use of Alpha Hydroxy Acids crowned it the frontrunner for anti-aging. Despite the growth in focus and company reach, Pond’s commitment to improving women’s lives has not changed.
The Ponds.com website, dressed in Pond’s iconic pink and white color scheme and product carousel, implies a true official Internet presence for a company with over a century in the industry. However, a few clicks around only delivers disappointment and a true lack of evolution into the information age as the products, Pond’s feature, glossary and contest links only lead to very basic information. In fact, the products page barely touches the surface of all the company offers currently available. Needless to say, the site doesn’t provide clinical trial information or results photos. Reference to the history of neither the company nor the Pond’s institute is available. For a full recount of the Pond’s history, a visit to Unilever.com is required.
Ponds Age Miracle – Does It Really Work?
Basic skincare products such as cold creams, cleaning towelettes and pore strips is all that’s offered from the Pond’s website. A search into the Internet universe delivered a host of anti-aging products brandishing the Pond’s label. Available Pond’s brands included White Beauty, Age Miracle and Flawless White.
In response to society’s obsession with growing old, Pond’s offers Age Miracle. The brand, which contains collagen, Vitamins A, C & E, as well as an SPF rating of 15, comprises a full skincare line of foam cleaners, toners, serums, eye and resurfacing creams plus makeup removers. It claims to deliver younger looking skin through using Conjugated Linoleic Acid which stimulates collagen production and boosts cell activity to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and age spots in just a week’s time.
With a strong offering in India’s skincare market, product reviews were difficult to gather. Of those found, most were positive. Many reviewers did find changes within the seven-day claim. One complainant did express a bad reaction but no further details were provided. Purchase in the U.S. will prove difficult as there were only a few third-party retailers such as GiftstoIndia24x7.com that would ship to the U.S. as well as Ebay, of course.

Final Verdict : Ponds Age Miracle
Pond’s has advanced from its days as a witch hazel potion. In tackling aging, the brand’s history should alleviate concerns of purchasing its Ponds Age Miracle overseas, however much like its website, it is interesting to note the superficial weak products offered state side versus the technologically savvy skincare products offered to our international sisters. Maybe it wasn’t profitable in U.S. markets, but its “present to India” branding suggests a different motive.
