...simple quality skincare...

What is Steam Cream/What does it do?
A multipurpose cream uniquely formulated using pure, unrefined steam for maximum absorption.
High quality skincare for all skin-types.
Locally produced using fresh, natural and traceable ingredients.
Funky eco-friendly packaging designed in Japan and decorated with limited edition collectible designs.
Handy-sized tin for on-the-go lifestyles at an affordable price.

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, STEAMCREAMis 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!


Freedom & Discipline

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.

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.

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. Thealmond 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.

Funky packaging designed in Japan. Eye-catching and constantly changing collectable graphic art to meet your every mood and occasion.

STEAMCREAM, comes packaged in a cleverly designed Japanese flushed lid tin. Made from aluminium, each tin is decorated with eye-catching and constantly changing graphic-art images. Build up your collection and swap with your friends!

Each design is run as a LIMITED EDITION print, giving STEAMCREAM an ever-fresh and changing image. Once sold out it provides a uniquely collectible piece of art.

First off, the smell is absolutely lovely.
It's fresh, soft, and a little herbal (lavender-type) in my opinion.
I have not yet used this on my face; I have actually been using it on my hands and arms.
It keeps me hydrated for hours- and most lotions/creams that I use absorb so fast that I don't feel hydrated long enough.
This is not at all sticky or oily, I really like it!!
