Five Unique Ingredients

Which Makes Paul Penders Effective

LevensESSENTIE Gold®

LevensESSENTIE Gold® is the secret of every Paul Penders product. It's a concentrated extract of 22 organic herbs, pioneered by Paul's grandmother some 100 years ago in Holland. Today's version is a mixture of Eastern and Western herbs from USA, China, Europe and Malaysia. LevensESSENTIE Gold® has been proven to provide a healthy complexion by combating free radical damage. Its extraordinary anti-ageing ingredients, such as vitamins A, B, C & E, enzymes and phyto-tocotrienols (plant-derived Super-Vitamins), counteract the early signs of ageing and sustain healthy skin.


This is a characteristic rainforest island herb with antibacterial and healing properties. Pegaga is native to Langkawi Geopark and an essential part of the LevensESSENTIE Gold®, which is used in all Paul Penders products.

Pegaga is known as the '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 a 'beauty herb' because it clarifies skin for greater radiance and glorious fresh looks. Pegaga has been used since ancient times, especially in the Ayurvedic medical system of India, and in Chinese traditional medicine. It is recommended by the World Health Organization as one of the most important medical plant species to be conserved and cultivated.

Coconut Water

Coconut water has been used for its medicinal and cosmetic properties in Southeast Asia for thousands of years. It is rich in lipids, lauric acid and glucids as well as vitamins, nutrients and minerals. For generations, Asian women have used fresh coconut water to cleanse the face, and coconut fruit in moisturizers, to keep the face and body young. Coconut water regenerates, revitalizes, moisturizes and softens the skin. All Paul Penders products include coconut water


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 Penders 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 ageing, 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-ageing ingredients in Paul Penders products can directly target the areas most in need of protection.

The Effectiveness of Paul Penders Skincare

At Paul Penders, we pioneered an exclusive Cold Blending technology where herbal products are made in small batches, and fragile, natural and organic ingredients are added only at temperatures below 35°C, thus ensuring all bio-active ingredients remain at full strength. Conventional mass-produced cosmetics typically use heat-processing, with many bio-active ingredients being destroyed when heated above 35°C.

We maintain our own, fully staffed, laboratory, where all our products and processes are researched and developed, which is unique for such a small company. Thus every stage of our process is completely controlled and assured, by us.

Paul Penders herbal skincare products are cold-blended and infused with LevensESSENTIE Gold® to offer effective and powerful results.
