A few days ago, Paul Penders was honored by the visit of representatives from Ayura Spa, here on Langkawi.
Also joining the meeting were representatives from Green Meadow Corp., Paul Penders’ distributor in Malaysia.
Representatives from Ayura Spa were invited by our very active distributor in Malaysia, Green Meadow Corp. in Kuala Lumper, in order to introduce them to Paul Penders’ products.
As Angelika Hartung, Director of Spa, said: “We are (always) considering bringing in new products if they are better than those we use presently.”
Angelika, who is a Naturopath, has spent more than 15 years on the natural “path”, working all over the world.
Paul Penders started out, telling the history of the company, with special emphasis on how it all started back in Holland and his refusal to test on animals.
The refusal brought Paul in the public spotlight: newspapers, TV-news, talk shows and radio interviews.
When finally Paul’s new factory was closed down by the government and he had moved to USA, the biggest surprise of all came when the products were going to be approved in the States. That happened in virtually no time! As Paul was told by the Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA): “No big deal! All your ingredients are already on the GRAS list. No need to test again!”
The GRAS list is a list of already approved ingredients in USA, which are Generally Recognized As Safe.
To this, Angelika Hartung added, that she had checked in the book “Safe Shoppers Bible” and “Paul Penders was the only producer of personal health care products that came out clean in all categories.”
Thank you for doing your homework, Angelika!
As the morning turned into noon, many aspects of spa products were discussed, followed up by a “tour of the house”, including a visit to Dr. Gatot’s laboratory.
By then, it was time for lunch before departing; a typical, local Malaysian lunch was served.
On behalf of all the Paul Penders staff, I feel safe to say that it was a very pleasant visit from Ayura Spa Langkawi.
