An Incredible Contest With Unique R&D Opportunities

The famous, world-known Iron Man contest may take place again this year in Langkawi. When it happens, Paul Penders Co sponsors again 57 year old New Zealander Leslie McMillan.
Leslie will be for up to 13 hours being exposed to torture under a burning tropical sun. And believe me, no peanuts to undergo such harsh tropical sun conditions hitting your body when one is in a survival mode during this race with the great obstructions.
The rainforest island of Langkawi Geopark in Malaysia is located 5 degrees north of the equator with weather temperatures at this time of the year varying from 30 to 35 degrees C or 100 degrees F – that during the entire day!
It is obvious that a whole day in the sun means an enormous attack on the skin. Sunburn and dry skin would be inevitable if adequate protection would not be taken very serious.
Therefore a wonderful opportunity for Paul Penders to perform R&D tests during this race. Where in the world to find better conditions to measure efficacy of our products? To know for sure how far our natural products can go in protecting skin and hair in a grueling sun?
Any R&D scientist would dream to test his products this way. No lab tests in artificial conditions with computers for performance tests. No, this is the real thing in hot sun and salt seawater; thus extensive scalp and hair protection is a must.

What Paul Penders products will be used during the race, as well during training sessions prior to the race?

Leslie, as well as us, were quite satisfied with the protecting effects that our products offered last time. Think about this… Just a 30-minute walk in the burning sun here in Malaysia will make one totally wet and exhausted. So imagine the effect on the body when one is for 13 hours constantly swimming, biking and running?

Of course, only Leslie can share the details of the experience of fighting the elements. This will be covered in an exclusive interview after the race. With over 700 Iron Man competing, Leslie may not win but for sure will be one of the best protected contestants when it comes to professional natural skin and hair care products.
Note: Each Langkawi Iron Man Race receives some 700 participants from up to 40 countries with over 1,500 volunteers helping out.

Singer Anna David now Paul Penders Ambassador in Denmark

Our Paul Penders distributor in Denmark is Milla Jorgensen, besides the marketing of our products she also works also very hard on PR. Lately she got in contact with Anna David, a double-platinum-selling artist in Scandinavia. Especially in Denmark, everyone knows Anna from her lively shows and TV performances.
Milla offered Anna to try out Paul Penders ICT (Intensive Clarifying Therapy) plus a few other products of our natural herbal cosmetics. She then wrote wonderfully about her experience doing the treatment what is put here below but first something about Anna David herself, and her amazing music and acting career and also her being a true philanthropist.

Anna and her mother applied ICT treatment on each other’s face and had lots of fun about their clowns-like-face after ICT was applied. She loved what ICT did for her face. Here is her spontaneous testimonial (in Danish) which was also translated by herself in English as well 🙂
PåskeSkønhed (Easter Beauty)
Dejligt Solskinvejr, igen i dag. Min mor og jeg føler os superfriske nu :-). Vi har lige afprøvet ansigtsmasken af Paul Penders og grinet af hinandens Klovneansigter. Paul Penders er 100% naturlige produkter. (Det er jo fedt, når skønhedspleje og økologi kan gå hånd i hånd. Efter jeg er blevet gravid er jeg blevet mere obs på, hvad jeg propper i munden og smører på kroppen 🙂 )
Huden elsker denne ansigtsmaske (ITC Intensive Clarifying Therapy). Mens cremen tørrer giver dens pebermynteduft en frydefuld inspiration til lugtesansen. Den dufter virkelig superlækker og huden bliver isnende kølig, mens cremen størkner. Det tager ca. 3 minutter og føles skønt, en sand sanselig nydelse.
Min mor og jeg beholdt masken på i ca. 25 minutter og huden bliver silkeblød og fresh. Det er den bedste ansigtsmaske jeg har prøvet!!! Bagefter puttede vi Skin Care Hydrating Control Serum på huden og til øjenpartiet Plantago Essential Eye Gel. Skønt. Nu skal jeg gøre mig klar til en dejlig udendørs påskefrokost 🙂

    Easter Beauty

    Lovely sunny weather is here again in beautiful Denmark. My mother and I myself feel super fresh right now because we just tried ICT (Intensive Clarifying Therapy) the parade product by Paul Penders Company and …. we are having lots of fun…. We are laughing at each others white ‘clown faces’. Paul Penders products are all-natural where beauty and ecology go hand in hand. After I became pregnant I have become more observant as to what I put in on my body, as well as my baby’s body as well..
    My mother’s and my own skin really love this ICT treatment. While it is drying at the face, gentle peppermint fragrance feels like a joyous inspiration. It really smells super yummy. The skin is icy cool as ICT solidifies on face which takes a few minutes. It feels great and is a true sensory delight! My mother and I kept ICT on for approximately 25 minutes before we rinsed it off our faces and neck.. The result was us feeling silky-soft and very fresh. It is the best facial mask we have ever used!
    After ICT we applied Hydrating Control Serum moisturizer and Plantago Essential Eye Gel to the eye area. And now…. I make myself ready for our beautiful Danish outdoor Easter festivities.

While waiting for ICT, the peppermint scent is a joyous inspirational smell. It takes approximately 3 minutes after application to feel it’s great, truly sensory delight. After 25minutes Anna and her mom rinsed off and both were delighted with the feel of freshness and silky skin feel… Anne mentioned this is the best beauty mask she had ever had!
After the ICT treatment she followed up with Hydrating Control Serum & Plantago Essential Eye Gel for a total facial care…
