Pond's Cream is a brand of beauty and health care products that is produced by the Ponds Institute which is owned by the multinational company Unilever.Pond's Cream was invented in the United States as a medicine by scientist Theron T. Pond (1800a__1852) in 1846. Mr. Pond extracted a healing tea from witch hazel, with which he discovered he could heal small cuts and other ailments. The product was named 'Golden Treasure', after Theron died, it would be known as 'Pond's Extract'. In 1846, the 'T.T. Pond Company' was formed, with Pond and other business people as investors. Theron Pond's health was failing, however, so he sold his portion of the company soon after, and he died in 1852.The company then moved to Connecticut and later to New York City.
