A captivating image of a young Chinese woman with flawless gorgeous-looking skin looking serene with in the background the mountains ready to free a butterfly from her delicate hand, and surrounded by beautiful flowers. Yes, such idyllic beauty is truly China, and for this and much more I love China; the country and its great people.
YET THE OTHER PICTURE SHOWS A LESS ROMANTIC IMAGE
Like in all countries, also in the wonderful great nation of China there are people who are out to make a quick buck. These people destroy the hard work of others who want to make the country clean of stolen identities; copied trademarks and fake products using the name of a brand that is known in one or another way.
In Hangzhou, China there is a company that calls itself “Paul Penders China” and they produce ILLEGALLY cosmetic products using my name without any permission or whatsoever to use my name. I fully own all rights to my name “Paul Penders” that is officially registered in China.
LAWYERS ARE INVOLVED
I would like our clients to know that I am not involved whatsoever with that company in China. My lawyers have officially written to the Hangzhou company to immediately terminate the use of my name and stop manufacturing products under my name. The company is not entitled to use my name, logos, website as I am not associated with them at all.
I have been trying for the past 4 years to stop this injustice and unlawful; practice but these perpetrators just do not care since Chinese laws are not always enforced and a lot of corruption still goes on at all levels in China.
But we got Amazon in China to stop carrying these fake Paul Penders products or we would sue Amazon USA, the mother company of Amazon China. How is it possible that an American company can be part of these unlawful practices? Could greed be the case?
Hangzhou Company in order to protect the image of
The country in the interest of consumers duped into
buying fake “Paul Penders” products in China.
LITIGATION BEING PURSUED
While litigation is being pursued I am making every effort to protect my brand and to caution Chinese clients of damage that may be caused by using fake products. These bogus manufacturers do not use the same ingredients. I cannot guarantee nor endorse the quality of the fake products. Moreover, these products do not contain our certified vegan ingredients.
to their complexion. Distributing companies in China that
continue to engage in distributing these products shall be
liable. My lawyers have already placed advertisements
in the Qian Jiang Evening Post to officially warn against
fake Paul Penders products made in China.
WHAT HAS THIS TO DO WITH THE LEGALITY OF THESE FAKE PRODUCTS?
Actually a lot, because a regrettable aspect of China regulations is that any cosmetic company, small or large, manufacturing cosmetic products made OUTSIDE China must have their products tested on animals before they can be sold in China.
Because of this new law we are not allowed to sell our own original products in China! Isn’t this ridiculous? Of course this loophole is being used to its utmost advantage by this company in Hangzhou.
Even though people, also in China, are outraged about this new law, it is possible to steal a trademark and start producing using cheap chemicals under an established brand and …. Just get away with it.

illegally manufactured in China.
