Notes from Paul Penders, CEO and founder – Today on “Lipsticks”

Red, glossy lips

Being a manufacturer of natural cosmetics means you constantly have to work on improving your products. Let’s take lipsticks for example; there are two major considerations to keep in mind:

1. How do we make sure that the lipstick is hard enough? Especially weather conditions like in Florida or in South East Asia (hot and humid weather) make this some kind of a challenge.

Paul Penders sponsorship – Interview with an Iron Man

As mentioned briefly earlier, the annual Langkawi Iron Man takes place this coming Saturday the 28th, here in Malaysia.

Paul Penders Co. is this year sponsoring Leslie McMillan from New Zealand who lives here on Langkawi. It is the second time Leslie is doing the Langkawi Iron Man; last year he finished in 14 hours and 16 minutes. Quite well done, considering Leslie is 54 years old.

When Leslie is not training for an Iron Man, he runs the Oasis Bar and Restaurant on the beach of Pantai Tengah. In fact, without his wife Jackie as the daily leader of the Oasis Bar and Restaurant, all this training would have been impossible.

Before the contest, Leslie will have his hair washed using Paul Penders Shampoo (Forte Medium Suds) and it will be treated with Paul Penders Hair Conditioner (Rinse Forte).

During the Iron Man, Leslie will be using Paul Penders Herbal Sunscreen SPF 22, Paul Penders Lavender Body Lotion, and Paul Penders Hand Cream (St John & Hibiscus A.M. Moisturizer). He will wash afterward using Paul Penders Herbal Moist Soap. Continue reading
