Countless beautiful poems haven been written about her; the endless depths, dazzling colors, magnificent and often peculiar inhabitants, the peaceful, pearly beaches with lovely waving palm trees, the savage cliffs and capricious coastlines, her unpredictable but passionate character, and marvelous sunsets. Ours oceans provide us with an abundance of inspiration, sense of freedom, and an overwhelming feeling of respect as we think of her mighty power or as we look at her impressive magnitude. For example, take a deep breath; we thank most of our respiration to the oceans. Research shows that algae in the oceans are responsible for ninety percent of the oxygen we breath in. But there are more remarkable facts: oceans seem to have a moderating influence on the global temperature. They also play a very essential role in our climates and our rain cycles on earth. In short we can all loudly confirm and agree on the fact that our oceans are indispensable for the versatile existence of life on our unique small planet.
SEEING THE SAD SIDE OF THE SEA
Regardless the fact that the sea has so much to offer, we lately hear a lot of sad stories from her side. Oceans seem to be not only an oasis of admiration to humanity. The’re also a dump for sewage, chemical waist, pesticides and plastics. We reassure ourselves by telling that our polluting part is small. We buy as much biological food as we can and we conscientious purchase bags of paper when we’ve done our groceries in the supermarkets. “No more plastic bags”, we tell ourselves, as we buy our next bag of linen, because we accidentally forget to bring one of the other’s from home. However, lets talk a bit about a sense of guilt. About our small part of the plasticization of the seas we maybe didn’t even were aware of, and what we can do to help prevent the plastic soup from growing.
LOVE IS IN THE HAIR
Have you ever thought of what you are flushing through your sewer drain when you are washing your hair with shampoo? In many shampoos there are tiny little parts of plastic, called microbeads or microplastics. That means that when we are ignorantly enjoying our relaxing shower, we are helping these plastics piles in the seas to gain weight! Because some parts of the microbeads are just too small to filter them from the water. In the EU microbeads are voluntarily banned starting in 2020 and replaced with natural substitutes. However in many countries worldwide, like in the USA, it is still common to use microbeads. We knew about plastics in our seas, food, drinking water. But in our shampoo..?
LOVE IS IN THE LAYERS
That’s why today I’d like to write about Paul Penders shampoos!
The packing of our shampoos is made of 100% recycled plastic, but even more interesting is the inside of the bottle; the ingredients. All products we make at Paul Penders are made with respect and love for our planet. For example, our Paul Penders Love in the Layers Shampoo
Paul Penders Love in the Layers Shampoo is made by mixing LevensESSENTIE Gold®, our 22 organic herbal extract with pure organic coconut oil. This shampoo has a perfect mixture of herbs and coconut oil.
Further more: Paul Penders products are never ever tested on animals. And palm tree oil? We don’t even mention that word in our factories, let alone using it! During washing, pure and nourishing coconut oil coats the hair, gently cleanses and carries away dirt and grime. After rinsing, a small amount remains on the hair and scalp; leaving it beautifully soft and shiny. The coconut oil and LevensESSENTIE Gold® herbals condition, tone and feed the scalp helping to keep it free from itching and flaking. Our shampoos are free from harmful chemical foam boosters, emulsifiers, perfumes and preservatives.
So, no sense of guilt involved, you can sincerely wash your hair and your hands in innocence with Paul Penders Love in the Layers Shampoo!
