Special Offer: LevensESSENTIE Gold

A type of organic compound that lies within the stratum corneum layer of the skin, ceramides help prevent loss of moisture. When ceramide levels decline, water evaporates more quickly and skin becomes dry. According to a research study published in the October 2006 issue of Skin & Aging, products that contain ceramides can help rejuvenate the skin to a far greater extent than products containing other types of emollients such as petroleum. The study included 10 participants between the ages of 18 and 60 years who were treated with a ceramide-based emollient on one half of their face and a petrolatum emollient on the other half.
Ceramides continue to be a key ingredient in many Paul Penders products including LevensESSENTIE Gold, Avocado & Cranberry P.M. Moisturizer, Mangosteen & Nettle P.M. Moisturizer, and Hydrating Control System
After two years of dedicated effort, Paul Penders introduces its long-awaited Natural Organic Product formulas. The attractively packaged products, which are manufactured using a unique processing technique incorporate exciting new ingredients that help attack unstable compounds in the skin known as free radicals. These molecules have been shown to cause wrinkles, premature aging, reduced elasticity and poor skin tone. Thus, controlling free radical damage is crucial to maintaining healthy and younger-looking skin.
The new Natural Organic products contain exquisite essential oils, vitamins, plant oils and other powerful ingredients sourced from the rainforest of Langkawi, a group of islands off the coast of Malaysia. All ingredients are holistically and ethically produced. Consistent with the Paul Penders product philosophy, no chemical colors, foam-boosters, emulsifiers, or harsh preservatives are used. Complementing our traditionally proven ingredients are ideas from the cutting-edge of science. For example, we utilize advanced liposome technology to enhance the delivery of ingredients to prime target areas.
      
In February 2007, Paul Penders sponsored German triathlete Kjell Schioeberg when Schioeberg competed in the Ironman Malaysia Triathlon in Langkawi.
Having received a Master of Physical Education degree from the University of Hamburg in 2006, Schioeberg has successfully completed 11 previous Ironman competitions. The Malaysia race is tough, though, consisting of a swim, bike and run course in temperatures averaging 43 degrees C, or about 110 degrees F. Because of the extreme heat, it's known as one of the most difficult Ironman competitions. Last year, Schioeberg finished Ironman Malaysia in 9 hours 51 minutes, to place nineth overall and first in the amateur division. This year, he beat that record by three minutes, finishing in 9 hours and 48 minutes.
For his first professional race on the island, Schioeberg wore Paul Penders A.M. Moisturizers and Paul Penders Herbal Sunscreen SPF22. His skin had been treated with Paul Penders ICT the evening before the face and his hair had been washed with Paul Penders Time Release Shampoo. Despite a tough race, Schioeberg’s skin looked healthy and no sunburn was noticed. Afterwards, the triathelete received a relaxing massage with Paul Penders Body Lotion.
For a limited time, Paul Penders will include three promotional-sized products to each LevensESSENTIE Gold order: Paul Penders Cleanser (14 day supply), Paul Penders Moisturizer (14 day supply) and Paul Penders Shampoo (1 - 2 treatments, depending upon hair length). In addition, all orders above $350 will receive a beautiful, locally handmade cosmetic bag and a copy of the book, Absolute Poverty. This book tells the story of a 50-year struggle in a Bidayuh village in Sarawak, Malaysia.
