Penaten: Origin & History

Sore baby bottoms were still a common problem until the beginning of the 20th century. The sensitive baby skin was attacked by acids and excretions, and more open patches appeared when the baby was changed in a nappy. Until the druggist Max Riese finally had the brilliant idea: he mixed a cream against sore babies' bottoms that was extraordinarily adhesive and moisture-repellent: Penaten Baby Cream was born and sold like hot cakes. The basic substance consisted of wool fat, which the chemist extracted from sheep's wool. To this day, the valuable wool fat is one of the main ingredients of the cream. Zinc oxide and allantoin, which are also contained in the cream, help the skin to regenerate.

On 17 September 1904, Max Riese finally registered the cream for a patent as "skin preservative Penaten Creme". Incidentally, the name "Penaten" is derived from the ancient Roman patron gods for happiness. Riese's wife Elisabeth came up with the idea. In the years that followed, production of Penaten Baby Creme continued to expand. In 1939, 500,000 cans are already sold. Today, the Penaten company is still considered the first port of call when it comes to well-tolerated hair and skin care products for babies. Besides the famous cream, the brand now also sells lotions, shampoos and powders.
