Oceans are the lifeblood of planet Earth and humankind. They flow over nearly three-quarters of our planet and hold 97% of the planet’s water. They produce more than half of the oxygen in the atmosphere and absorb the most carbon from it. The air that we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, the products that keep us warm, safe, informed, and entertained — all can come from or be transported by the ocean.
Scientific studies have shown that chemicals used in our daily skincare are damaging our oceans’ and flora and fauna.
Common ingredients used by cosmetic companies such as microbeads found in scrubs and the chemicals oxybenzone and octinoxate found in sunscreens, are responsible for the bleaching and permanent damage of coral reefs and its flora and fauna. Up to 14,000 tons reportedly end up in the oceans coral reefs each year.
From the start, more than 50 years ago, Paul Penders has never used chemical ingredients in cosmetics. Paul Penders has always been conscious about the ingredients used and what the effects are for human skin and body and our nature and oceans.
Let me explain the ingredients used in Paul Penders Active Glow Facial Scrub and Paul Penders Herbal Sun Prosperity:
“In contradiction with many other cosmetic companies who are using microbeads in scrubs, Paul Penders uses ‘Bambusa arundinacea extract’ derived from natural bamboo that provides the pure, gentle and natural exfoliant for the skin. It is natural, safe to use for the skin and does not harm our oceans and environment.”
“Paul Penders Herbal Sun Prosperity Is made without harmful chemicals and we use natural Zinc Oxide & Titanium dioxide, both are naturally occurring in minerals, that help to protect against sun damage. The natural titanium dioxide we use is non-micronized and nano particle free.
Absolutely safe to use for skin and safe for our world oceans”

We make no concessions and only use ingredients that are safe for your skin and safe for our oceans.
