The team at the Global Handwashing Day produced the short video below which brings home the need to wash your hands frequently to avoid passing on bacteria and desieses which you may have collected from a third party or surface you touch.

I’ll look at the shared bowl of peanuts or crisps on the bar in a different light in future!

Some nasty hand-borne disease facts:

  • 23% of Commuters have faecal bacterial on their hands

How to remove makeup without makeup remover

Makeup Removal without Makeup Remover“We make her paint her face and dance” sings John Lennon, in the first women’s rights song before Helen Reddy’s 1971 anthem ‘I am woman’.

Since Ancient Egyptian times, it’s been fashionable for women to wear makeup – they’re not perceived as properly groomed without it. Increasingly, men wear makeup too. But for those of us with dry or sensitive skin, it’s a problem. Not only is makeup packed with chemicals that might cause a reaction, so is the makeup remover we need to take it all off again at night.

So what’s the best makeup remover?

Best makeup removers

Most makeup removers and cleansers are full of chemicals. The best makeup removers are 100% natural, contain no chemicals, steroids or parabens, and are not tested on animals.

Our Deep Cleansing Therapy bar is one of these – it’s a simple, gentle way to remove makeup without makeup remover.

It looks like a soap, you use it like a soap, but it doesn’t dry your skin like a soap. There’s no need to scrub; just wash it into a gentle lather and pat dry. It acts as an effective makeup remover that cleanses, soothes and hydrates the skin. What’s more, it’s made using a cold process, so it retains all the glycerine that helps moisturise your skin.

What’s in our makeup remover

Our Deep Cleansing Therapy bar contains Zander, olive oil, castor oil, coconut oil, turmeric, beeswax and rainwater. From that list, you can see all the ingredients are 100% natural. You’ve probably heard of all them except Zander, and might be wondering what it is.

So here’s a fascinating fact you can tell your friends next time you’re discussing the best makeup removers!

Zander is our name for a special mineral-rich mud that’s been formed over thousands of years from reed-beds in certain Eastern European lakes. It’s been scientifically proven to detoxify the skin. Together with the moisturising oils, it’s the best cleanser and makeup remover, especially for dry and sensitive skin.

“I love your deep cleansing therapy bar. My skin looks and feels great. Plus it lasts for ages.”
Christine Hinton

Now you know how to remove your makeup without makeup remover, there’ll be another old song you can sing and dance to – “I feel pretty!” from West Side Story.

Natural skin care products for Sensitive Skin, containing Zander

Syrinx Za Natural Skin CareAccording to one source we read, the average person applies ten different skincare products every day. That means up to 130 chemicals are being absorbed into their skin!

Although you’d hope the ingredients have all been approved for use in skin care and cosmetic products, no-one really knows what side-effects they might have, especially for people with sensitive skin.

Un-natural skincare: ingredients to avoid

If you are looking for skincare products for sensitive skin (or you are simply concerned for your skin and the environment) these are just a few of the commonly used chemicals you might prefer to avoid. You won’t find a trace of them in any of our products, we promise!

  • Parabens
  • Sulphates
  • Petroleum
  • Lanolin
  • Synthetic colours and fragrances

So, if you don’t want to apply any of those ingredients to your skin, what are the alternatives? Let’s look back to the time when humans had no other choice but to use natural skin care products…

History of natural skin care

According to Wikipedia, there are records of Ancient Egyptians using natural products to treat a variety of skin conditions. Meanwhile, it’s been traditional here in the UK and around the world to apply a ‘mud pack’ to improve the appearance of your skin.

Mud, mud, glorious mud!
Not just any old mud will do. Our skin cream contains a rare sediment known as Zander which is 6,000 years old and found only in certain parts of North East Europe.

Glacial water and a cool climate means the reeds at the lakeside decompose slowly to form a mud that stores a range of lipids, vitamins, minerals and amino acids that heal, nourish and rejuvenate skin cells.

We mix the Zander with natural oils to draw out toxins, metals and impurities from the skin with no need for parabens or other nasties. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of Zander before; it’s the basis of all our natural skin care products and has undergone extensive trials.

Important notes about “natural skin care”

There’s no legal definition of the word ‘natural’, although there is a common understanding that it refers to ingredients that are sourced rather than manufactured.

No ingredients – whether natural or chemical – can be guaranteed NOT to cause an allergic reaction. Although adverse reactions are extremely rare, our skin cream does contain traces of nut oils. If this affects you, please stop using the cream immediately and contact our customer care team.

Zander the Natural Skin Care Wonder Ingredient

They call Syrinx Za the Natural Skin Care Company for good reason. Syrinx Za only use natural in nature ingredients in all of their products and in particular they use a wonder ingredient named Zander.

Zander is a dermatological – and geological – phenomenon!

A sediment found in a rare ancient lakes across North Eastern Europe, Zander has been used for centuries as a natural skincare treatment. And today, Zander is the basis of a whole range of Natural Skin Care products.

Zander’s secret lies in its ability to remove toxins and metals from the skin – drawing out impurities before restoring the skin’s natural moisture. It’s a different approach that sets our products apart from traditional remedies, that work by sealing chemicals into the skin.

Zander is full of natural vitamins and minerals, which are well known to help boost the body’s own immune system boosting the body’s ability to fight afflictions such as warts or skin tags and other irritable sensitive dry skin issues.

What is the best Skincare?

Natural skincare is the care of the skin using products which are manufactured using ingredients which occur naturally in nature such as mud, herbs, roots, essential oils and flowers. These ingredients are mixed with naturally occurring preservatives, surfactants, humectants and emulsifiers which act as carrier agents.

As an example Syrinx ZA use an ingredient, which we have named “Zander”. Zander is formed from a sediment taken from ancient lakes in Eastern Europe and is a derivative of rotted reeds which have lain pristine for thousands of years. Zander is our “wonder” ingredient. You can read more about Zander here.

The general definition for natural skin care is based on manufacturing using botanically sourced ingredients which occur naturally in nature, without the use of man-made synthetic chemicals, and manufactured in such a way to preserve the integrity of the ingredients, such as “cold-processing” soap.
