Paul Penders Story
Pioneer in Natural & Organic cosmetic since 1972 with LevensESSENTIE Gold, a 100 years old recipe of 22 organic herbs proven to restores, rejuvenate, detoxify and revitalizes the natural beauty of skin and hair.
Paul Penders story began at the age of 12 when he saw his grandparents run successful salons across the Netherlands. This encouraged his desire at a very young age to go beyond the chemical-based beauty products and create natural, herbal, vegan, and environmentally friendly range of products, thereby making his name synonymous with natural herbal skincare.
With the encouragement from the Dutch herbal master Herma Eeftink and natural healer Dr. Ab Steyn, Paul decided to incorporate a unique family recipe, an herbal extract, into his products called LevensESSENTIE Gold™ (Dutch for “Essence of Life”), which was earlier used by his grandmother for extraordinary skin and hair care formulations. This unique blend of LevensESSENTIE Gold™ is used in all Paul Penders products even today.
Every Paul Penders product is enriched with the LevensESSENTIE Gold™, a 100-year-old holistic infusion of 22 organic herbs, enzymes, vitamins, and antioxidants which restores, rejuvenates, detoxifies, and revitalizes the natural beauty of skin and hair.
At Paul Penders, we retain the unique healing properties of organic botanicals, which are found in the oldest rainforests of the world and combine it with our conventional cold-blended mixing technology which helps keep the bio-active ingredients at full-strength, while processing for maximum product potency.
Our products are certified by an international accredited laboratory to guarantee their freshness and efficacy. Along with many international awards, the company was in focus in 2001, when it received excellent ratings from Researchers David Steinman M.D and Samuel Epstein M.D in their book, The Safe Shopper’s Bible.
Going back as far as 1900, Paul’s grandmother, grandfather and Parents have all run successful salons in The Netherlands. From the very beginning, my desire was to go beyond chemical-based beauty products and create a completely natural, healthy, but effective range of products.
