Pond’s, a brand synonymous with skincare the world over relaunched today in a grand spectacle! The face care expert that entered the top end segment in 2006 has re-invented itself in a brand new avatar with superior and holistic solutions for the Indian woman. Amidst much fanfare, Pond’s relaunched its hugely successful revolutionary anti-ageing skincare range Ponds Age cream Perfect Results today. The fabulous spectacle depicted the rebirth of a timeless brand through a captivating Grecian musical that celebrated the rebirth of love, romance and beauty.
The ambience drew inspiration from the mystical world of Greek mythology, from the tarnished white pillars and intriguing Greek human statues to the unending immaculate white drapes that enveloped the surreal setting. The enchanting Greek love story unfolded with Malaika Arora Khan as the Greek goddess of love and beauty Aphrodite, Arbaaz Khan as her handsome lover Adonis and an enthralling dance performance narrating the birth, death and rebirth of Aphrodite by the Terence Lewis Dance Company.
The grand finale was a re-invention of love that was brought to life with the couple renewing their vows onstage by getting married to each other once again.
“I am delighted to be present at this significant milestone in the Pond’s growth story in India .This is just the beginning for Pond’s as it globally relaunches itself and embraces the role of being the face care expert for women across ages.

Commenting on her association with Ponds, Brand Ambassador Priyanka Chopra said “Being the face of Pond’s is a big honour for me. It makes me nostalgic, as I have used Pond’s as a child.
