Paul Penders Natural Organic Skincare
Paul Penders is an active environmentalist and avid animal rights activist who incorporates these beliefs into his products. His philosophy of “no chemicals” and “no animal testing” started with shampoos and later on evolved into a bounty of new skincare products for people of all ages.
Paul strives to create the best products available. His early fights against governments helped influence the entire cosmetic industry for the better. Today, Paul’s company continues to create innovations. His products are sold in the U.S., Canada, Europe, China, Japan, Korea and several other countries. He still loves a challenge especially if it involves upsetting established practices that offend his ethics. Paul is convinced that those who work passionately for what they believe in will succeed in making a difference.
Paul became involved in a battle with the Dutch government in 1984. They wanted to close Paul’s factory because he refused to do animal testing. As a result, Paul moved his factory to the United States and, during the happy years that followed, he introduced many new products that repeatedly demonstrated that his humane, natural methods do work.
At Paul Penders, they pioneered an exclusive Cold Blending technology where herbal products are made in small batches, never heated above 35°C, thus ensuring all bio-active ingredients remain at full strength.

Why Paul Penders?
5 Key Ingredients Unique to Paul Penders Organic Natural Cosmetics and Skincare
A concentrated extract of 22 certified organic herbs was pioneered by Paul’s grandmother in Holland, about 100 years ago. Today’s version is a mixture of herbs from all over the world including the beautiful rainforest island of Langkawi Geopark in Malaysia. LevensESSENTIE Gold™ is an integral part of all of Paul’s products and has been proven to provide a healthy complexion by combating free radical damage. Extraordinary anti-aging ingredients, such as vitamins A, B, C & E, enzymes and phyto-tocotrienols counteract the early signs of aging and sustain healthy skin.
A characteristic rainforest island herb with antibacterial and healing properties. Pegaga is native to Langkawi Geopark and an essential part of the LevensESSENTIE Gold™ that is used in all Paul Penders products.
Pegaga is known as ‘miracle hero’ of the rainforest because it helps heal the body in so many wondrous ways. It is a traditional medicine used to alleviate fatigue and depression, but is also known as Langkawi’s ‘beauty herb’ because it clarifies skin for greater radiance and glorious fresh looks.
Coconut water has been used for medicinal and cosmetic properties in southeast Asia for thousands of years because it is rich in lipids, lauric acid and glucids as well as vitamins, nutrients and minerals. For generations, local women in Langkawi Geopark have used fresh coconut water to cleanse the face and coconut fruit in moisturizers that keep the face and body young. Coconut water regenerates, revitalizes, moisturizes and softens the skin. All Paul Penders skin and body care products are now made with coconut water.
Loaded with anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals, enzymes are catalysts for cell renewal. By capturing free-radicals and thus preventing damage caused by pollution, smoking, bacteria and sun, enzymes are capable of effecting changes such as wrinkle reduction and a healthier glow. Together with liposomes, the enzymes in Paul Penders skincare products can open blocked skin pores to prevent whiteheads and blackheads; hydrolyze oils for smoother skin finish and remove dead skin cells. Enzymes create finer skin texture and reduce pore size when used over time. Papaya (papain) and pineapple (bromelain) enzymes are strongly beneficial to beautifying any skin.
Ceramides and Liposomes
Paul Pender’s natural herbal cosmetics stop the decline in natural ceramide levels of skin by using a liposome-based delivery system. A decline in the skin’s natural ceramide levels over time results in the familiar signs of aging, however Paul Penders skincare products with added ceramides increase the skin’s total moisture content. Utilizing a liposome-based delivery system, ceramides and the other anti-aging ingredients in Paul Penders products can readily target skin locations most in need of protection.
