Dry Skin on Elbows

If you sit at a desk in front of a computer for any length of time you may find yourself suffering from dark, rough, dry skin on elbows. We find that office workers or students often complain of this problem. This skin can become hard, dry, cracked and inflamed if not taken care of, can be very sore especially when you bend your arms. All that is required is a natural skincare routine that includes your elbows. Causes for Dry Skin on Elbows There are many other reasons that you can get hard … [Read more...]

Benefits of Argan Oil

As one of our most favorite and key ingredients, we’d like to discuss the benefits of argan oil, one of the rarest oils around. Argon Oil is relatively new to the western world but the women of Morocco have used it for years to keep youthful, healthy looking skin. Argan oil is from the kernels of the argan tree from Morocco where they are harvested by hand and then crushed or ground and pressed. When used for food they are also roasted. Argan Oil for Skin Right away we might realise that … [Read more...]

Dry Hands in Winter

It’s a common problem to suffer with dry hands in winter,  exposure to the harsh winter conditions, can take away the moisture and strip the skin of the natural oils that protect our hands. This can make your hands so dry that they can crack, peel and even bleed in some cases. Its not only the cold air that can dry out our hands, its also our central heating and our constant washing of hands to protect ourselves from winter colds and flu. What do to about Dry Hands in … [Read more...]

Treating spring-kissed skin Syrinx Za creams and balms offer just … [Read more...]

Winter Skin

With this cold, wet weather that we have been enduring for the last few months many people are beginning to suffer winter skin complaints. For most, these are seasonal complaints but for others, half of the year can be written off as we hobble painfully to work or rub our ears trying to rid ourselves of pesky itches and rashes. Protecting your skin AND health! Then there are colds and flu like virus that leave us sneezing and snuffling into disposable hankies, the continuous use of which … [Read more...]

The #SyrinxZA Story Part 2

Looking down the list of ingredients for the Therapy Bar you soon spot ‘Zander (Phragmites communis: natural extract)’. This exotic sounding item has a wonderful, romantic history that starts with the Ice Age in Eastern Europe some 15,000 years ago. If you can imagine the heaving bergs and glaciers of the present day Antarctic being transposed to Scandinavia and Northern Europe, then you have a picture of the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) as they must have appeared during the … [Read more...]

Hand Made Soap – The #SyrinxZA Story

The Syrinx ZA Story starts over 15,000 years ago during the last Ice Age when Mother Nature began the process or creating the conditions which eventually led to the current day harvesting of the natural ingredients we use to manufacture our natural skincare products. We’ve named our primary ingredient Zander. More about Zander later but for now let’s talk about saponification and the manufacturing process which helps to make Syrinx Za products so unique and beneficial. To saponify or not … [Read more...]
