The POND’S Institute is a global network, made up of over 700 scientists who work to understand the needs of our skin. They understand the concerns of the modern day woman and develop solutions to help her.
In South Africa, a small group of scientists based in Durban form part of this global committee. Their job is to focus on skincare problems faced by the South African woman. Us! Our concerns!
In the past 10 years, they’ve identified the key concerns that affect South African women to be;
- uneven toned skin complexion,
- oiliness and
- sagging/ ageing skin
Their goal is to develop products that target these concerns to create solutions. And they’ve done it!
This year POND’S introduces two new launches; a breakthrough in breakouts with POND’S Pimple Clear and the newly re-formulated POND’S Perfect Colour Complex Range.
POND’S Pimple Clear is the world’s first pimple solution to feature breakthrough Lock + Clear technology. This locks powerful pimple-fighting Active Thymo-T Essence deep inside pimple causing germ cells and is proven to help clear pimples from the root, in just 3 days.
Pimple Clear is the result of 95 years of research and development behind it, so you can rest assured that the experts at the POND’S Institute have identified a breakthrough technology to help target spots effectively.
Another innovation worthy of praise is the newly re-formulated POND’S Perfect Colour Complex range, which is said to offer 96% protection against damage.
It contains a new patent, Vitamin B3+ to help fight against ten of today’s biggest causes of dark marks.Vitamin B3+ is clinically proven to work thirty times faster then the previous Vitamin B3 ingredient alone and is twice as effective at fading dark marks.
Seriously innovative, not to mention exciting stuff from the POND’S Institute so if you’re in the Sandton area between now and the 12th March 2017, be sure to pop by the activation and educate yourself so that you can be prepared and have the tools you need to fight off your skincare concerns.
