Few Unique Benefits Making Botanical Cosmetics More Effective.

LevensESSENTIE Gold ® is the beauty secret to every Paul Penders product. It’s a concentrated extract of 22 certified organic herbs, of which was the start was pioneered by Paul’s grandmother some 100 years ago in Holland.
 
The today’s version of this unique, concentrated, organic herbal extract is made from a mixture of eastern and western herbs from USA, China, Europe and Malaysia. LevensESSENTIE Gold ® has been proven to provide a healthy complexion.
 
Its extraordinary anti-aging ingredients, such as vitamins A, B, C & E, enzymes and phyto-tocotrienols counteract the early signs of aging and sustain a healthy skin.
 
Pegaga is a characteristic rainforest herb with anti-bacterial and healing properties.

Pegaga is native to Langkawi Geopark and an essential part of the LevensESSENTIE Gold ® herbal extract that is used in all Paul Penders products. Pegaga is known as ‘miracle hero’ of the rainforest because it helps to heal the body in many wondrous ways.
 
It is a traditional medicine used to alleviate fatigue and depression, but also known as a ‘beauty herb’ because it clarifies skin for greater radiance and glorious fresh looks.
 
Pegaga has been used since ancient times, especially in the ayurvedic medical system of India and in Chinese traditional medicine. Pegaga is even recommended by the World Health Organization as one of most important medical plant species to be conserved and cultivated.
 
Coconut water

Coconut water has been used for medicinal and cosmetic properties in Southeast Asia for thousands of years because it is rich in lipids, lauric acid and glucids as well as vitamins, nutrients and minerals. For generations, Asian women have used fresh coconut water to cleanse the face, and coconut fruit in moisturizers that keep the face and body young. Coconut water regenerates, revitalizes, moisturizes and softens the skin. All Paul Penders products (excluding lipsticks and powder products) include coconut water.
 
Enzymes
Loaded with anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals, enzymes are catalysts for cell renewal. By capturing free-radicals and thus preventing damage caused by pollution, bacteria and sun, enzymes are capable of effecting changes such as wrinkle reduction and a healthier glow. Together with liposomes, the enzymes in Paul Penders skincare products can open blocked skin pores to prevent whiteheads and blackheads; hydrolyze oils for smoother skin finish and remove dead skin cells.
 
Enzymes create finer skin texture and reduce pore size when used over time. Papaya (papain) and pineapple (bromelain) enzymes are strongly beneficial to beautiful and a fresher looking skin.
 
Ceramides
Paul Penders cosmetics stop the decline of natural ceramide levels of our skin by using a liposome-based delivery system. A decline in the skin’s natural ceramide levels, over time, results in the familiar signs of aging, however skincare products with added ceramides increase the skin’s total moisture content.
 
Utilizing a liposome-based delivery system, ceramides and other anti-aging ingredients can readily target skin locations most in need of protection.
 
No Heat during Processing
The effectiveness of our skincare products, containing many fragile bio-active ingredients, would be minimized, or even destroyed, with the typical hot manufacturing process. Paul Penders uses a cold blending technology where products made in small batches are not heated above 35°C.

Paul Penders herbal skincare containing LevensESSENTIE Gold ® herbal extract with added ceramides, liposomes and coconut water, as well as various vitamins offer effective and powerful results. The “cold-blended” manufacturing system ensures that all bio-active ingredients remain at full strength making our products most effective as possible.
 

 
    

Winter is calling

I am in Europe now and it always amazes me at this time of the year how trees turn so beautifully red and yellow. I love the experience of the unique wonderful smells of autumn that are in the air, with wind, at times quite strong, and nights where it starts to freeze. It is that great season I always miss when at Langkawi rainforest island in Malaysia.
 
Now I start thinking about winter skincare… what preparation I wish to advise to our customers in Northern Europe and Northern Asian countries. I also realize that in Australia they wait for spring to arrive! How interesting the world is in its simpleness, its consistency and its beauty.
 
Suddenly I realize that I am happy that we were able to finalize our new moisturizer created especially for dry winter weather. As a matter of fact, my thoughts go out to our people in the production area that are preparing for the very first production run of this new moisturizer: Dry Skin Relief. Day-dreaming in these stunning surroundings of the natural woods is like therapy for the soul.

So, since winter is coming, eventhough around the world climates vary, the problems our skin experiences are similar. In winter skin deals with a lot of harsh environments, cold air, indoor heaters, rain, snow and an overall lack of a good sunlight. We are left with dry skin that can become easily chapped and cracked.
 
Our skin’s goals this winter should be to moisturize, exfoliate and moisturize again.
 
With all below, keep moisture in mind with all the choices you make in your skin care regime.
 
Cleansing and Toning Rules….
 
Better use no cleansing gels, soaps or foam cleansers but cleansing milks are the very best right now. Put away astringents and use a toner ideally for winter. Skin needs to be soothed and balance; never dried out further by an astringent. Chamomile & Moringa Skin Toner is the perfect toner for all seasons and for all skin types, also during winter because of its very gentle and soothing effect on skin. Especially during winter season anyone will experience the best for their skin using this herbal toner made with 22 certified organic herbs.

Ahhh….Moisturize….
 
Choose heavier creams in the winter than you would in the summer months. Feel free to use Dry Skin Relief also on your lips besides the entire face. If your skin is itching it is because dry air of winter is causing the moisture in the top layer of your skin to evaporate quickly. You will need to slather those areas with extra moisture until you feel relief. Thus now it is the perfect time for our new Dry Skin Relief that is truly packed with rich emollients and various natural plant oils.
 
Yep… Exfoliate ….
 
And better twice per week! To remove dead skin cells allows skin to absorb the extra moisture you are lathering on. Have you ever wondered about the areas of your skin that looks like your skin is flaking off your body? What happens is that during the winter months there are thousands of dry skin cells ready to be sloughed off the surface and they become clumped together with oil which forms what appear to be flakes.
 
Thus, exfoliate your skin using Citrus Fruit Exfoliant or our new Active Renew Facial Scrub (coming out very soon). One superb thing to do during winter is a by-weekly treatment of ICT (Intensive Clarifying Therapy) and skin will look more radiant than ever… especially during the winter season!

Last but not least…
 
One of the best times in winter to apply Lavender Body Lotion is right after a hot bath or shower. The heat and steam from the shower allows skin to thoroughly absorb moisture. Using the above tips assures you, and your skin of a Happy Winter!!!!

 
 
    

Finally Relief for Dry Skin…?

No more dull and dry skin? Now you can rescue your dry skin with Paul Penders new Dry Skin Relief; a complex formulation with plenty of rich plant oils and moisturizers designed as a rescue to relieve dry skin.
 
It contains LevensESSENTIE Gold® our natural extract made from 22 certified organic herbs that soothes and softens dry skin.
 
Rich oils and minerals immediately give a smooth and soft effect, but it also helps to give additional moisture to the face to prevent from wrinkles. Your face will feel soft and balanced. Natural anti-oxidants protect your skin against environmental influences, which can be harmful for any unprotected skin.
 
We can guarantee that fighting dry skin has never been so effective.
 
Dry Skin Relief will give a more youthful appearance, because will not only give immediate result to a dull feeling but also gives a boost to a radiant complexion.
 
Not only during the winters in Northern Europe, Canada and America, as well as in Korea, Japan and China we receive many requests for a special product to relieve dry skin. We even got requests from people living in the Rocky Mountains as well as in Florida and even Southeast Asia.
 
Dry skin can plague anyone, at any climate and any place in the world.

The combination of oil and sweat keeps our skin soft and supple. But lack of humidity, freezing dry climates, over-exposure to water or sun, chemicals and harsh soaps will dehydrate skin. If the skin loses water more than the deeper cells can replenish it, the upper layer dries out.
 
But dry skin can occur at any time of year, not only during winter. Dry skin starts out as small, whitish scales possibly with some reddening and cracking. Dehydrated, dry skin tends to become itchy as well.
 

Luckily enough our new Dry Skin Relief is here to help!

Proudly announcing the introduction of Paul Penders Dry Skin Relief. A truly wonderful product that became available after years of thorough testing in Europe; including by dermatologists in The Netherlands.
 
One of our test persons mentioned:

    “I follow a lifestyle of regular exercising, a good diet plan and take care of my skin with the best cosmetic products, but despite high prices of some moisturizers, I never found a product to good enough for my dry skin. I was apprehensive to be a test person for Dry Skin Relief but my skepticism changed after I tried the tester. After one week my skin felt way more supple and itching disappeared while glowing radiance was back. I feel very good about this new product and will use it as long as I can”.
