Its name is taken from the Penates, the household deities of Ancient Rome.
The Penaten Cream was developed by German chemist Max Riese in 1904. The production was based in a factory built in 1908 in Rhöndorf which was destroyed during the Second World War. It was rebuilt by Riese's sons Max and Alfred.
In 1986 Penaten became part of the Johnson & Johnson company. In 2000, the production of the cream was moved to Italy and France.
