Our Story

Syrinx Skincare founder, Environmental Scientist Rupert Bevan, has been a long-standing advocate for using natural, sustainable ingredients wherever possible. For many years he has been researching the geological phenomenon Sapropel – a rare botanical sediment recovered from the beds of ancient glacial lakes. Sapropel’s unique property lies in its ability to remove toxins and metals from the skin – drawing out impurities before restoring the skin’s natural moisture. It contains a considerable number of beneficial lipids, vitamins, amino acids and fulvic and humic substances that work together to thoroughly clean and repair the skin.

The healing properties of Sapropel are particularly efficacious for sensitive skin. Our products have been designed to address a wide spectrum of debilitating skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, acne, cracked feet, dry hands, and hair and scalp issues.

Our soaps, creams and balms are free from parabens, chemicals, fragrances, palm oil, steroids and animal cruelty. We use only the very highest quality natural oils, including Tea Tree oil, Kalahari Melon Seed oil, Argan oil and shea butter. Our products are hand-made in small batches to allow for the use of natural preservatives, to minimise waste and overproduction, and to leave a much reduced carbon footprint in the production process. We believe very much in the efficacy of natural ingredients for skincare, and we would love you to join us on our journey, and experience the unique benefits of the Syrinx Skin Care range.
