Last week I was invited to a magnificent POND'S Launch at the One & Only Hotel in Cape Town. We were taken through the history of Pond's and then shown the new Age Miracle Range. They had organised a facial demonstration at the One & Only Spa, where a therapist showed us how to apply and use this new anti-ageing range for +35 skins.


POND’S has been creating products for women for 150 years. The POND’S INSTITUTE has invested heavily in intensive research, funding state of the art laboratories providing leading edge skin science, so that women are assured they are getting nothing but expert beauty technology incorporating new science to support new innovations.

Now another revolutionary product from POND’S has been unveiled by the leading skincare expert, this time in the arena of Anti-Ageing. This extraordinary range is the latest innovation from this trusted brand and took almost 9 years to develop. It is aptly named “Age Miracle”, because it promises to give visible results, helping to combat dryness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and age spots in just 7 days, without any irritation.



CLA first came to the attention of POND’S in late 1996. At this time the role of CLA in skin was unknown. Later when the POND’S INSTITUTE was studying ageing in skin, they discovered that CLA could promote human epidermal differentiation and also stimulate the production of skin ageing repair.


Ideally, even before the signs of ageing appear, we should have used sun protection and extra moisturising creams that would deter our skin from getting in such bad shape - most of us don’t and our skin eventually looks old, on the inside and outside.


This is where the CLA in POND’S Age Miracle steps in.

It works by boosting the activity of skin cells - unlocking the door to youthful skin.

POND’S Age Miracle brings younger skin cells to the skin surface to combat dryness and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and spots in just 7 days.


POND’S now successfully holds patents for efficacious CLA combinations with other key skin ageing ingredients, and has recently been granted patents in Europe. 

Over time, with continued product use, your skin begins to look young, because deep down, your skin cells are acting young and healthily. In vitro test results prove that with CLA, the following beneficial and healthy changes are happening deep inside:

• Cell growth is increased and cell renewal is enhanced.

• Production of the cell’s outer envelope or protective ‘shell’ is increased.

• Levels of collagen are increased.

• Levels of decorin are increased.

• Improvements in elastin are seen to aid skin elasticity.

POND’S Age Miracle’s active ingredient, CLA, is also known to have anti-inflammatory properties and does not cause irritation. For this reason, CLA is different compared to many other anti-ageing ingredients, which have a tendency to cause irritation when used. The CLA found in all POND’S Age Miracle products is sourced specially from safflower seed oil and is safe to use on human skin.


POND’S Age Miracle also contains other actives. This means the products makes use of all new discoveries in anti-ageing technology, so that the consumer can really see the benefit by using only one range of products.

• It contains a collagen compound, which boosts the skin content of collagen to give an anti-wrinkle effect.

• It contains Vitamin C which is an antioxidant that helps protect and prevent against additional skin ageing.

• It has SPF 15 PA++ that protects skin from harmful UV rays that cause further skin ageing.

Alex, 'Thank You', so much for your incredible review! I just love that you have featured every single product available in the NEW Ponds 'Age Miracle' Range, so consumers can see exactly what is available. I also thought that having the Ponds 'Skin Therapist' - Maryke Malan,  to run through the entire range in the form of a demonstration on the Models. Worked out brilliant well, as it showed exactly how to use the product step-by-step. For me I learnt a lot, how to use eye cream for a start, which I had been using in-correctly since I have started using eye cream. I have been putting it above my eye, and not on my eye-lid. Also how gently you really need to be on your skin, when applying a moisturiser. That was also an eye-opener for me.
