“I was involved in a serious traffic accident that left my face severely wounded. The deepest cut was on my cheek, all the way down to the bone.

My doctor told me that it would take at least a year for a wound like that to heal and at that time I would probably need plastic surgery to fix the scars.

I had heard a lot of good things about PENZIM and decided to try it when my wounds closed. I have used PENZIM every day for 3 months and the results are stunning.  The scars are almost gone and therefore I will not need plastic surgery.

Thank you PENZIM!”

“I have been suffering from eczema and allergies from young age. My doctors have recommended steroid creams as treatment and they work for  up to a point for short periods at a time. I have also used solar lamps, hydrating creams and antihistamines to treat the symptoms. I also try to avoid stress. One day when my day cream was finished I grabbed a bottle of PENZIM lotion and applied it on my face.

I felt it start working immediately and my skin felt moisturized for a long time afterwards. After having used PENZIM for 5 weeks and never got any allergy or eczema spots during that time I find it nothing short of a miracle. Now I apply PENZIM 2-3 times a day and I feel that not only can I keep my allergy or eczema symptoms away, I also feel that my skin is younger and healthier.”

Ásta Kristjánsdóttir

“My two year old daughter suffered from diper rash, like many other children. At first, I used a special cream that seemed to work but only after using it for several days in a row. One day when I lost the cream I tested PENZIM gel that I had in the house. I applied it generously over the burned area and the day after the rash was completely gone! I was completely amazed.

I recommend that parents with children on diaper try PENZIM gel. It simply works!”
