Secret to beautiful hair & scalp

When your scalp is too dry, too oily or plagued with dandruff, healthy looking hair won’t happen unless you incorporate scalp care into your hair regime. Over the years, Paul Penders has developed a great hair and scalp treatment which delivers beautiful, healthy hair. The important first step is to cleanse the scalp thoroughly. Powerful rainforest herbs from Malaysia slowly saturate and purify the scalp while loosening dandruff. For the healthiest hair, the process is as follow:

  1. Apply Pegaga Scalp Cleansing Treatment.
    Gently massage until scalp feels warm. Leave in for 10 minutes (60 max) and cover hair with a plastic shower cap or wrap in a towel or cloth for best results.
  2. Shampoo clean with our Time Release Jasmine Shampoo
    After scalp cleansing, wash thoroughly with our scented Jasmine Shampoo to ensure a healthy foundation for beautiful hair.

  3. Deep condition with our Herbal Lemon Conditioner
    After shampooing, while hair is still wet, apply Herbal Lemon Conditioner, especially designed to correct dry and brittle ends without weighing down hair. Adds moisture as well to hair.
  4. Apply Intensive Hair Repair Therapy
    Restore balance and life to dry, damaged and chemically treated hair with regular Intensive Hair Repair Therapy treatments. Leaves hair full of vitality and shine, without weighing it down. Also targets split ends. For beautiful shiny hair.
  5. Finish with Holy Basil Conditioning Scalp Toner
    Beautiful hair starts with a healthy scalp. A scalp and hair solution designed to ensure circulation and balance sebum production. Calms scalp. Restores luster and shine. To use Holy Basil Conditioning Scalp Toner, apply sparingly directly onto the scalp.
  6. To tame frizzy hair, use Leave-In Defrizzing Balm
    Protect, moisturize and tame frizzy, dry hair with our Defrizzing Balm made from herbal essential oils providing vitamins and minerals. Leave in for the healthiest, most manageable hair.

It took months of preparation before the showroom was opened. Jess, who manages all the activities, was previously working with prestigious brands such as Shiseido, Lancome and Christian Dior. As a matter of fact, she won twice the “Victoria State Counter Manager & Beauty Consultant of the Year Awards”, one time in 2009; another time in 2010. Jess has more than 20 years unique experience in the beauty industry.
Being made totally familiar by Bee, the managing director of Euro Ventures (exclusive importer for Paul Penders in Australia) she start to appreciate the uniqueness and remarkable potency of our natural botanic formulations, made in small batches, versus the cosmetic products made by large cosmetic corporations.
Jess is well aware that in Australia natural pureness for cosmetics is the preferred standard for a growing amount of concerned consumers. She made a true commitment to a full time business in educating, promoting and marketing our Paul Penders natural cosmetics in Victoria.

Since the opening of the Paul Penders showroom, annex training centre, Jess taught a growing Australian clientele and other interested people on the specifics of Paul Penders natural cosmetics, including our various award-winning products.
Jess and Joseph (husband and business partner) work closely together with a very successful Australian website “Living Safe” that educates on cruelty free and non-toxic products and much more founded by Nicole Groch

On this website Intensive Clarifying Therapy was recently reviewed by professionals and as a special gesture ICT is now available with a special price to the clients of the Paul Penders store as well.
Nicole is the leading Australian hair & makeup artist besides a very well-known animal-rights activist. She is a long-time, personal friend of Paul and together they often address issues of animal rights connected to cosmetic testing.

Of course, we are truly thankful for having committed distributors in Australia; people who live by a natural life style and the philosophy of kindness themselves as well. Does this not ultimately bring all of us towards a better world?
Paul Penders International congratulates Bee and Calvin Goh; owners of Paul Penders Australia, as well as Jess and Joseph for their achievement. We wish them lots of success in expanding our natural cosmetics in many parts of this beautiful country.

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.

    Some 700 Iron Men contesting in the ocean in a 4.5 Km swim

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?

    Finishing…!! Yvonne, R&D manager of Paul Penders brings flowers to an exhausted Iron Man

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.

Hear it from someone else

Author: Anna Rodgers on September 19th 2011
Once in a while I come across a new skincare range that is just amazing! I heard through Sarah Best who was the editor of Get Fresh Magazine for about 6 years about this range and Sarah spoke so highly of it. Editors of Magazine get the best products to try and when they continue on using something, you know that it must be great!
Paul Penders range began in the 1900’s when Paul’s grandparents both ran well known beauty salons in the Netherlands. Paul wanted to make skincare that did not rely on chemical based ingredients so set about creating a range that was based on the purest ingredients and used a cold pressing process. This meant that the ingredients remained ‘raw’ and highly active.

With the help of Dutch herbal master and apothecary Herma Eeftink and also the famous natural healer Dr. Ab Steyn, they all encouraged Paul to incorporate a unique family-devised herbal extract into his products. Called LevensESSENTIE Gold® (Dutch for “Essence of Life”), his grandmother had used the extract for extraordinary homemade skin and hair-care formulations for many years.

LevensESSENTIE Gold® is made with coconut water (wow!) and ceramides, vitamin A, B, C, E, Alpha Tocotrienol (best quality form of Vitamin E) and enzymes and is in each and every single product. This special combination creates the highest quality effect on the skin and is well loved by many women and men around the world. The cold processing is unique as most companies use heat to mix their creams and lotions and this heating will of course affect the structure of the enzymes and other precious ingredients. So for many of us, the creams that you put on, are not what you think they are! They tend to just sit on the skin and not improve the condition in a way that is noticeable.
The Paul Penders range has skincare, haircare, makeup and bodycare and even a very very impressive product called Intensive Clarifying Therapy, ICT, which is an at home mask treatment kit which gives salon worthy results but without the use of harsh chemicals. This is one of their star products and one that people rave about! This is on my list of things to test out!

The Natural Skincare Company, who distributes Paul Penders in the UK, was kind enough to send me a few samples of some of their products. This website is absolutely brilliant because all of the brands are very trustworthy and high quality so I can safely say to anyone, if you want to find the best natural beauty products, then head on over!

Brenda’s Friends – House of woods

Demi and Josh are married for 10 years.
But they never got the pleasure of getting children, and for this reason they are having a difficult time in their lives.
Through his work, Josh met Joji, a guy from India who invited them to visit his state in India. He suggested to visit the province of Kerala, and learn something of Ayurveda. Although this was not Demi’s and Joshes plan as they were in a difficult time in their relation, they decided to get a ticket and travel off to Kerala.
The environment was beautiful as they saw. And then they were invited to get an Ayurveda treatment.

They went to Vanamoolika, a project started by a priest who helped women and their families to organize a wellness treatment based on Ayurveda and in this way, get a better life themselves as well. The first impression they got was the open minds and strength of women who worked at the project.
So when we as friends sat together we asked Demi and Josh about their travelling to the Vanamoolika centre.
They were very enthusiastic telling about the different aspects of the Ayurveda treatment and told very lively about the people, their commitment and their talks to Joji and others in the centre. My husband and I were a bit surprised, but very happy to see they looked good again.

Thus we asked what their best experience was.
Both of them looked at each other and nodded, it was the house of woods.
We had a renewed experience of nature’s goodness to our wellbeing and our happiness. Of course we had the Ayurveda treatment, which was great. But the house of woods made it feel more intense. This was our place where we slept and retrieved to relax. The different scents from the different woods and herbs had an effect on our wellbeing we did not expect at all, and renewed our commitment as husband and wife together. We are happy regardless our deeps wish.
We all got silent.
Brenda’s friends are short stories of experiences of modern women. As Brenda is entirely made up by the writer, notice that she and her friends do not really exist! Thus people and stories are fiction. We hope you get an insight in our thoughts and values in life. Sometimes serious, sometimes just funny. Enjoy and we hope you get good understanding about Brenda’s approach to life!
