Ingredient Review for Steamcream (Updated 2021)

Updated 2021

Back in 2014 when I wrote my original post Streamcream was trending amongst the beauty blogger community. At the time I felt the marketing behind Steamcream was greenwashing consumers because it claimed "All in One Natural Moisturiser" but from my viewpoint the ingredient list told a different story. 

Here we are in 2021 and Steamcream has made a return. I'm pleased to say that full ingredients are available on their website and they are looking more appealing than before.

"Ground oats (colloidal oatmeal) are rich in amino acids with highly moisturising properties, almond oil and jojoba oil have fatty acids similar to sebum, and cocoa butter is rich in oleic acid, an acid abundant in human sebum."

Sadly, this cream isn't suitable for anyone with fragrance and essential oil allergens as currently you'll spot Farnesol, Eugenol, Coumarin, Linalool, Limonene, Citronellol and Geraniol on the ingredients list.

Steamcream is unique in comparison to other moisturisers because it is handmade by craftsmen in Japan using a steam emulsification method. They still produce the same colourful artistic designed aluminium tins which are very attractive but also environmentally friendly as they can be recycled. Also Steamcream make the following statement on their website -

"All our STEAMCREAM products are 100% vegan and have not been tested on animals. We also only use cruelty-free ingredients, and never use animal-derived ingredients."

I've never tried Steamcream so I can't personally recommend but I felt it was only fair that I should update my original blog post. For further information on this product, please visit
