Finally Adios to Bullfighting?

Finally, and a “Grandioso Bravo!!!” to Catalonia’s parliament who had the guts to vote to ban bullfighting from 1st of January 2012 becoming the first region in Spain to act against this century old cruelty and total madness.

Of course, the move was watched across Spain. The motion tightens Catalonia’s animal protection law and the vote came after strong animal rights activists that have been tiredless campaigning for long time to end these terrible events. “Prou” (or “Enough” in the Catalonian language) collected some 200,000 signatures calling for the assembly to decide on the ban with 68 votes in favor and 55 against.

Many supporters and opponents of bullfighting gathered outside of the assembly during the lawmakers debate and vote. “Stop Animal Cruelty” read the signs of the anti-bullfighting crowd while those in favor of the practice said “Bulls Yes, Freedom Yes”.

We at Paul Penders hope that the Catalonia’s animal protecting law sets an example for the entire country and for the entire world to stop unnecessary, barbaric “sports” (or shows some call them) involving innocent animals being taken advantage of just for profit without though of their wellbeing and their rights (!) and can be exploited by anyone. .

In God’s name….
please stop the cruelty of innocent animals.

In God’s name…..
take people in stead but ask them permission first what can’t be done in the case of animals! For that it is cruel and total barbaric behaviour.

Hats off for Catalonia !!

Product Spotlight: Paul Penders Mascara

Many people are familiar with Paul Penders skin care and body care products. But fewer realize that Paul Penders also manufactures a line of natural makeup that contain natural and organic herbs and organic color ingredients as well.

Unlike few other mascaras, Paul Penders mascara does not contain tar, alcohol or petroleum-based drying agents. Instead panthenol is used to thicken lashes. This ingredient also eliminates dryness and heaviness for the eye lashes.

“My eyes have become allergic to mascara since I’ve started wearing contact lenses,” says one mascara user. “My lashes feel very heavy and droop at the end of the day. Since I’ve been wearing Paul Penders mascara though, I haven’t had this problem. It makes my lashes feel very light and moisturized.”

Paul Penders natural mascara is exceptionally gentle.

“My eyes are very sensitive and mascara makes them red and itchy after 4 or 5 hours. Paul Penders Mascara didn’t have this effect – I felt comfortable all day long!” says another mascara wearer.

New Study Confirms Superiority of Ceramide-Based Products

A type of organic compound that lies within the stratum corneum layer of the skin, ceramides, helps prevent loss of moisture.

When ceramide levels in skin decline, water evaporates more quickly and skin becomes dry.

According to a research study published in Skin & Aging Magazine, products that contain ceramides can help rejuvenate the skin to a far greater extent than products containing other types of emollients.

The study included participants between the ages of 18 and 60 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 special ingredient in Paul Penders skincare products.
