Paul Penders range of natural skin care products are not new to me but I had absolutely no idea that this Dutch brand is actually based in the Langkawi island in Malaysia! Interestingly, this brand has been around for over 40 years in Holland but it was only in 2003 that founder, Paul Penders, discovered the rainforests of Langkawai in the Andaman Sea and decided to relocate his R&D facilities to Langkawi Geopark. So this is the place where Paul Penders’ formulations are created and that’s like so close to us here in Singapore! Yet, this brand has rather limited presence here as far as I am aware; at least I don’t see the products sold in popular outlets.
Hands up those of you who love your body wash to lather well! And hands up those of you who love your body wash to invigorate your bath! If you’ve raised both hands up, then you’re gonna like Dr Organic Organic Pomegranate Body Wash. In fact, the pomegranate scent is so strong, it actually lingers in the bathroom and my skin for a good period of time after shower. I really don’t mind smelling like pomegranate the whole day!
I was clearing my bookshelves recently and found this bottle standing at a corner, with half of the contents still unloved. I took it out, gingerly pumped a little on my hand and was amazed that it still smells and feels the same! I waited awhile and noticed I had no reactions whatsoever and it must mean the product is still usable. Why, the bottle says this bottle is good for 9 months but it’s been about 20 months since I started using it! And you know what, this product is free of parabens so whatever is preserving it is doing a good job!
I finally got down to purchasing a Bentley Organic product after having seen the brand around for months at Unity @ Suntec City. I was running low on my body wash and thought I’ll give their products a try since the price is pretty affordable. Available on the shelf were three options and I ended up picking up the Calming and Moisturising Bodywash with Lavender, Aloe & Jojoba.
