Fake Paul Penders Products Still Circulating In China

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.


These products may look nice to some but they are illegal products! We do not make green products using this kind of packaging. The picture of the factory is a large printing company. Consumers are deceived into thinking that this is the company that manufactures my products.

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?

I urge the Chinese authorities to clamp down on the
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.

Chinese consumers will stand to lose when damage is done
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.

NOW MORE ANIMAL TESTS 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.

Warning to Chinese consumers:
You put your face, body and hair greatly at risk
by using fake “Paul Penders” cosmetics
illegally manufactured in China.

Plant Enzymes For Healthy Skin

Malaysia’s largest newspaper wrote not long ago about the beneficial effects that plant enzymes have on keeping skin healthy and beautiful. They mentioned that plant enzymes work as a tool to maintain radiant skin, as well as repair adverse skin conditions such blemishes, spots, discolorations and excessive sebum production.

The article confirms why we are using plant enzymes in our products since 2009. We also write about it for several years.

How does papaya work in skincare?

As we age, the glue that binds dead cells to our skin hardens and that make it more difficult for us to get rid of dead skin. Regular skin exfoliation is essential in order to remove dead skin cells allowing the skin to produce new, healthy cells.

Since 2009, we are using various types of plant enzymes mixed with coconut water extract in all Paul Penders skin and body care products because plant enzymes are considered great super cleansers for skin. Plant enzymes’ effects are beyond the effect of a cleanser, as enzymes are gently proteolytic exfoliants that expel the dead cells from the skin.

They also help in regulating the sebaceous flow, following the needs of your skin. Plant enzymes help creating an extraordinary smooth skin and a refreshed, clear and youthful complexion

The Story of Michelle

“I have been using your products for more than 20 years as I am chemically allergic to cosmetics. I use your black eye pencil and mascara exclusively. These are the ONLY I do not react to. I can not wear any other makeup as I react severely to them. I beg you to not to remove these products ever from production. Thank you!”
 

    Michelle deJarld, California, USA
    (Address not disclosed on request)

 
I use a great testimonial as follow-up to my blog article of a while ago because of the scare tactics by “The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics” where our customers spontaneously write us that show that Paul Penders cosmetics are SAFE even for people with most sensitive skin.
 
What makes me upset is that our time-tested natural ingredients, according to The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, are linked to cancer and a host of diseases without any scientific evidence presented by them. How is this possible in a country like the US? We receive testimonials from satisfied people all the time, but this one is special. I wish to share especially this one with you too.
 
The Story of Michelle.
 
Dear Paul,
 
I would be honored if you use my letter as a testimonial.  My name is Michelle deJarld and I live in California. I have had allergies all my life to foods, chemicals, environmental factors and most anything and everything. Wearing make-up has been very difficult as I am allergic to so many products. Paul Penders is the only eyeliner and mascara that I have been able to find anywhere that I won’t react to.
 
I was born with hives, an allergic reaction to a medication my mother had taken before delivery.  I have a lot of food allergies also. It’s been an interesting and very challenging journey so far!!
 
I am an official court reporter by day and a rock drummer in a local band by night.

The band I play in is called “Moe and the Sparrows” and we do all original Christian rock songs. I enjoy classical music very much as well, and any guitarist that I have worked with a classical background is always a wonderful musician!
 
I also have played bass guitar in a cover band doing early 60s through 90s along with current rock music. Drumming and guitar are great outlets for stress and a lot of fun!!  The stress of my day job is tremendous so to have a great outlet like this really helps!
 
I am a Blink 182 fan, but I love all kinds of music and bands out there currently. And past, from the Blues, some Jazz, rap, and of course rock artists like the Rolling Stones to the Beatles to Led Zeppelin (whose drummer John Bonham was a great influence)  to Pearl Jam to No Doubt, to Lincoln Park to Kings of Leon, etc., the list is infinite.
 
I am a Cancer Moonchild
 
Very sensitive internally along with the external sensitivities! I’m also a natural very dark redhead; French and Irish, which again adds to the sensitivities! Anyhow, for over 20 years now your products help me to be able to wear makeup like the rest of the world and even more needed and useful for my performances!

Still 1.5 Million Dollars Available For Grabs!

We wrote before about a most amazing and admirable offer made by the Royal Society of Chemistry in England to pay $1.5Million Dollar to anyone for simply doing nothing! For sure this offer must have been noticed by cosmetic giants such as Estee Lauder, Shiseido, Avon, L’Oreal, but also by the “natural cosmetic giant brands” such as The Body Shop, Aveda, L’Occitane, Dr. Hauschka and few more who employ the very best cosmetic chemists they can get.

The offer must also have been noted by certifying organic bodies such as The Soil Association, EcoCert, Nature and more organizations so eager to certify cosmetic companies as long as these cosmetic companies pay a royalty of their worldwide sales to these organizations, making them rich and more powerful while they do nothing to add value to the quality of the products they certify.
 
In January this year the Royal Society of Chemistry wrote us and congratulated our company on the article we wrote about their deal.
 
Here is the deal to receive $1.5Million for anyone for free!!
 
In hopes to halt the hype and deceptive stories of several cosmetic companies, the Royal Society of Chemistry offers to pay US$1.5Million to anyone or any company wherever in the world that can show hard proof of a so called 100% natural cosmetic product. Show a cosmetic product that consists of only 100% natural ingredients to them and get all that money into your bank account. It is that very simple.
 
But maybe it is not that simple because nobody seems to be able to claim this $1.5 Million.
 
Maybe the Royal Society of Chemistry is no dummies after all. Maybe they show with this action to the world that there is no cosmetic scientist or no cosmetic brand in the world to truthfully say that their cosmetic products are “100%” natural as they know that always there is a need for some materials that are not resourced directly from nature in their products. The understanding of what is “natural” or “organic” versus what is a chemical cannot always be truly defined. Therefore, whatever brand, at whatever consumer price… cosmetics products always contain some chemicals despite claims of being “100% Natural” or “100% Certified Organic”.
 
Paul Penders natural herbal cosmetics that are made with the best natural ingredients that include many certified organic ingredients but do we make outrageous claims to be 100% natural? Or 100% Organic? Since it is impossible to be 100% natural or organic why do certain cosmetics companies still make these claims? And why would they not claim that pot of gold waiting for them for over 2 years already? Would it not be their best advertizing as well besides receiving $1.5Million for free?

Bravo to the Royal Society of Chemistry represented in Europe, USA and Asia consisting of 50,000 members. We at Paul Penders Company too will report immediately when a cosmetic company steps forwards to claim this huge amount of money! But I think we will have to wait, wait and wait.

Debbie in the Netherlands is one of the officials Test Judges of the Beauty Journal and tested 3 of Paul Penders natural herbal skincare products. Below is her report.
 

What 3 Paul Penders products did Debbie test?

Paul Penders Hydrating Control Serum

This serum surely feels comfortable on my face thanks to the almost creamy effect. I noticed that it easily spreads out and quickly absorbed into my skin. I decided to use only this serum before going to bed, once a day, because it is of such a firm consistence. Sometimes I use Aloe & Lavender A.M. Moisturizer for the day, but also sometimes I use Aloe & Lavender A.M. Moisturizer for the night as well because I do not like to apply two “thick” layers of skincare on my face.
 
I noticed every time when I woke up that my skin looked more radiant and smooth. In fact my skin looked very healthy and seemed even firmer than before. The smell of the product is ‘herbalish’ and honestly, I had to get used to it although that particular herbal scent disappears after a couple of minutes.
 
Paul Penders Aloe & Lavender A.M. Moisturizer

This day care product is of a light composition and gets easily absorbed into the skin. It spreads out wonderfully and I can feel that is soothes my skin. Immediately after application my face feels well moisturized and therefore really soft. It gives my face the comparative matte taint that I like so much. The scent is very fresh and certainly not overwhelming. It’s actually a very nice smell and the texture of the product turns this day care into the perfect product for the typical summer weather conditions in The Netherlands!
 
Paul Penders Avocado & Cranberry P.M. Moisturizer

This night moisturizer is of a perfect creamy substance and it feels great on my skin. It’s slightly thicker than the day care moisturizer but still quickly absorbed into my skin. It doesn’t feel oily and that’s a great advantage compared to some other organic night creams I’ve been testing before!
 
This time I really feel that I am giving my skin a little extra for the night and I am actually looking forward to every new evening when I can use the personal night cream that I have now adopted to love…
 
This Avocado & Cranberry PM Moisturizer also has the specific Paul Penders herbal like scent but… meanwhile I have grown into loving it!!! Because of this herbal smell I am starting to think that it might just really do the work for my skin. This scent helps me to keep close to nature and makes me realize that this is just what we have forgotten. Staying close to Mother Nature for she provides in life all we need.

My conclusion about Paul Penders Cosmetics:
Using all these 3 products result in a healthier looking skin and makes me really happy to look into the mirror. My skin looks well nourished and firmer. I do not expect my lines to disappear or even become less because the most important thing for me is radiant skin and a healthy glow. The paradox of this conclusion is that at first I was afraid to write this positive review because one could not possibly be so enthusiastic about Paul’s products. My test results seem exaggerated but then, I am truly THAT enthusiastic! Surely there must be a minor….
 
Well there could be two little minors of Paul’s products:

  • They smell like herbal garden in summer and that is a matter of taste.
  • The packaging is simple and beautiful but not significant. The consumer might not be easily drawn towards the packaging and that would be a shame! Because Paul Penders products really deserve your full attention!

Last but not least….:
I’ve fallen in love with Paul Penders natural herbal cosmetics. The 3 products I tried feel like trying more of Paul’s products. In addition I have also fallen in love with the mission, the vision and the passion of the Paul Penders Company.
 
Cruelty free organic cosmetics will give the same results as non-organic, chemical cosmetics. Life’s responsibilities; hold on to your principles… “Just do your thing and go for it”!
