Theron Tilden Pond (1800–1852) was the founder of the T. T. Pond company which he co-founded along with several associates in 1849.[1]

He developed "Pond's Extract", to be used as a "healing tea", from the bark of witch hazel. This was used as a topical salve for wounds and purported remedy for numerous other ailments.[2] Though he was the founder of the company, he could not hold on to it for long and sold it soon. The company he founded was incorporated with the name Pond's Extract Company in 1914. Pond's Cream is currently produced by Unilever.[3] Pond died in 1852.
