5 Key Ingredients Unique to Paul Penders Organic Natural Cosmetics and Skincare

Paul Penders Herbal Extract with 22 organic or wild herbs

LevensESSENTIE Gold™

A concentrated extract of 22 certified organic herbs was pioneered by Paul's grandmother in Holland, about 100 years ago.Today's version is a mixture of herbs from all over the world including the beautiful rainforest island of Langkawi Geopark in Malaysia. LevensESSENTIE Gold™ is an integral part of all of Paul's products and has been proven to provide a healthy complexion by combating free radical damage. Extraordinary anti-aging ingredients, such as vitamins A, B, C & E, enzymes and phyto-tocotrienols counteract the early signs of aging and sustain healthy skin.

Pegaga Herb in Paul Penders Hair Treatments


A characteristic rainforest island herb with antibacterial and healing properties. Pegaga is native to Langkawi Geopark and an essential part of the LevensESSENTIE Gold™ that is used in all Paul Penders products.
Pegaga is known as 'miracle hero' of the rainforest because it helps heal the body in so many wondrous ways. It is a traditional medicine used to alleviate fatigue and depression, but is also known as Langkawi's 'beauty herb' because it clarifies skin for greater radiance and glorious fresh looks.

Coconut Water is in Paul Penders Beauty Products

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, local women in Langkawi Geopark 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 skin and body care products are now made with coconut water.
Fruit 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, smoking, 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 beautifying any skin.

Ceramides and Liposomes

Paul Pender's natural herbal cosmetics stop the decline in natural ceramide levels of 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 Paul Penders skincare products with added ceramides increase the skin's total moisture content. Utilizing a liposome-based delivery system, ceramides and the other anti-aging ingredients in Paul Penders products can readily target skin locations most in need of protection.

Why Are Paul Penders Products So Effective and Potent?

Conventional mass-produced cosmetics typically use heat-processing, with many bio-active ingredients being destroyed when heated above 35ºC.

Paul Penders have developed an exclusive Cold-Blended processing technology whereby products are made in small batches and are not heated above 35ºC, thus all bio-active ingredients remain at full strength. This is why Paul Penders skin care, body care, hair care, make up and baby care products offer such effective and powerful results.
