When I first heard of steam cream a year ago, I imagined a
1. cream in a tub that either heated itself, creating a facial sauna type effect or
2. a cream that you rub over yourself before getting into a sauna with a group of pygmies.
I have a vivid imagination.
The truth is much simpler! Steam Cream is a very simple steam formulated multi purpose creamm coming in a simple silver 75g tub – the tubs aren’t plain though, there are lots and lots of Limited Edition and special designs – that right – the LE addiction.
STEAMCREAM represents the latest concept in skincare. Using a revolutionary steam-infused manufacturing process, STEAMCREAM provides a long-lasting, intensive and effective form of skincare that can be used on face, body and hands.
STEAMCREAM have pioneered the use of a steam technique to create this unique, gentle and loosely-bound emulsion. This looseness allows each ingredient – including a moisturising and soothing oatmeal infusion, orange flower water and healing lavender oil – to breakdown and penetrate areas of the skin that other creams find hard to reach.
Packaged in a compact, flush-lid aluminium tin featuring unique and collectable designs, STEAMCREAM is a perfect on-the-go product – convenient to slip into your bag, take to work, to school, on holidays or to the gym. And it’s hand luggage friendly at just 75g!
Ok. But what’s the steaming business?
Steam has been recognised for its benefits to skincare for centuries. Which is why we put pure, unrefined steam directly into our cream.
The result is a soft, luxuriant and glossy cream. STEAMCREAM breaks down immediately on contact with the skin to disperse each ingredient directly to the areas they’re designed to benefit.
How the steam process works.
The power and energy produced by bubbling steam melts and fuses the ingredients together at a speed that defies most traditional cream-making methods.
The force and intensity allow the ingredients to emulsify instantly, producing this beautifully textured light and glossy cream.
The emulsion is held together very loosely and gently, allowing the cream to break down immediately on contact with the skin for maximum benefit.
STEAMCREAM refreshes areas of the skin that other creams find hard to reach.
In most creams, the emulsifying process is what holds the ingredients tightly together. It can also stop creams breaking down.
Because of this, each ingredient struggles to enter the skin individually. It stays as a blend, moisturising the skin’s surface yet preventing its real benefits from reaching deep into the skin’s molecular structure.
STEAMCREAM creates a cream that forms a gentle and loose emulsion. This looseness allows each ingredient to break back down to its purest form, penetrating the skin where needed.
The orange flower water, oatmeal infusion and glycerine hydrate and moisturise deep into the skin. The almond and organic jojoba oils combine with cocoa butter to seal in their goodness, softening the skin’s surface.
The process is topped off with a fragrance created from a natural blend of pure essential oils selected for their toning, soothing and healing qualities.
Here is my steam cream:
It smells lovely and the texture is light and absobs easily. I didn’t get any rashes or allergies from this cream.
As you can see I had mine on it’s side….
Anyway this cream is really lovely. It’s a bit big for a normal person’s handbag but for my abyss of a handbag it’s ideal – cream for my cheeks when they flake, cream for boyf’s hand when they crack, cream for Megs body when she gets itchy.
Also the price at £9.75 is reasonable, you get a lot and of course a pretty tin which I wouldn’t throw away.
This just works really well. It’s like my Macbook – it just works. (You hear that, Windows users?)
