Zero BS

ZERO BS is a luxurious, 100% Natural Tallow skincare range.  This animal fat provides the closest molecular match to our skin’s natural oils.  The skin recognises this mammal fat and pulls it into the skin cell membrane.

Zero BS is a unique range of Dermatologically Tested and Dermatologist Approved Skin Food, with Tallow, its main, active ingredient.

Our skin food is clinically proven to be a highly effective anti-inflammatory and antioxidant with antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. It constitutes a natural diet for our skin, boosting its ability to repair itself.

All our ingredients are locally sourced, and our tallow comes from free-range, grass-fed and grass finished cows.

From the farm to our kitchen to your skin.

THE SCIENCE OF TALLOW

Zero BS is Dermatologically Tested and Approved and gentle on sensitive skin. Clinically proven effective, it offers anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-fungal benefits, serving both as a cosmetic and therapeutic.

Derived from grass-fed, free-range cow fat, Tallow makes up almost 80% of Zero BS products. It is rich in Vitamins A, D, K, and E and Omega-3. Its full range of fatty acids, provide deep nourishment and hydration to the skin while reinforcing its moisture barrier to ward off dehydration and maintain suppleness. Furthermore, it aids in softening the skin and fostering a vibrant and youthful appearance. It is suitable for babies, various skin types including dry, sensitive and those with mature skin.

Tallow, with a 55% saturated fat profile akin to our skin's sebum, replenishes the skin's natural barrier, with no nasty chemicals or preservatives.

Similar to the microbiome in the gut, our skin harbours vital micro organisms that are crucial for maintaining optimal skin health. In order to eradicate bacterial growth in water-based products, conventional skincare formulations use chemical preservatives. However, upon application, these preservatives can disrupt the skin's natural microbiome. In contrast, as Zero BS contains no water (aqua), our natural ingredients are able to support the skin while feeding its microbiome.

Being a mammal fat, tallow's nutrient profile and compatibility with the skin's barrier make it a valuable ingredient. Its ability to enhance hydration and strengthen the protective barrier highlights its therapeutic potential for healthy skin.

ZERO BS LEADS THE CHARGE IN AFRICA

SKIN CARE REVOLUTION

We know that we may not be for everyone, and we may offend some vegans. But we choose this route with good reason: using animal fats is the only way to feed the skin its natural diet.
Within the skincare innovation arena, fashion trends lead many to seek plant-based solutions. At ZERO BS, however, ancient wisdom and modern science point to a different way — animal-based fats.

Sometimes, true revolution comes from returning to the place from which we all began.

ZERO BS - A 360° APPROACH

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET

100% Natural Product with ZERO additives. ZERO Parabens. ZERO chemicals. In other words, no added BS.
ZERO BS is 100 percent biodegradable. Unlike petroleum-based skincare products, our impact on the environment amounts to ZERO.

Aware of the high degree of BS claims in the skincare industry, we will never include un-named, mis-named or unpronounceable ingredients.

As a 100% natural skin food, Zero BS products are non-standardized, meaning that their consistency may differ depending on the season and ambient temperature. For example, our products are softer in summer and harder in winter. The product can also feel grainy in winter as the fatty acids may separate under cold conditions. Don’t fret! Once in contact with body temperature the product reconstitutes itself and becomes smooth and spreadable.

THE STORY

The Zero BS journey began when Warren became the single, adoptive parent of a four-month-old baby girl. Following years on the cortisone and aqueous cream hamster wheel and concerned that most skin products on the market were synthetic chemicals and petroleum based, he began looking for natural alternatives for his daughter’s skin psoriasis.
After much research, Warren came across a traditional skin care recipe that had been used for thousands of years. Working in his kitchen for 6 months, he developed a product that had a dramatic impact on his daughter’s skin.

Excited by his discovery, Warren began sharing his balm with family and friends, and after experiencing it for herself, lifelong friend Yael, recognised its potential and the opportunity to help many others suffering with skin conditions. A partnership was formed, and the business of Zero BS was born.

Further time in the kitchen led to the development of additional products to support a number of skin, hair and scalp conditions. ZERO BS is now available online as well as in pharmacies, Wellness Warehouse stores, Faithful To Nature, Takealot, in health shops across the country and now exporting abroad.

GRASS-FED, GRASS FINISHED

ETHICALLY SOURCED

AT ZERO BS, WE BELIEVE THAT INGREDIENTS FOR SKINCARE SHOULD BE MANUFACTURED IN A KITCHEN, RATHER THAN IN A LABORATORY. ALL OF OUR INGREDIENTS ARE FOOD SOURCED AND FOOD GRADE. YES, SAFE ENOUGH TO EAT. WE THEREFORE LIKE TO CONSIDER OUR PRODUCT RANGE AS SKIN AND HAIR FOOD. 

The Tallow we use comes from a single source - Greenfields Farm, located in a pristine setting near MooiRiver, in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. 
Greenfields cows are certified free-range. They are grass-fed and free roaming, raised without hormones or antibiotics. Greenfields Farm embraces the principles of sustainable farming.

The majority of our essential oils are sourced directly from a single farm in the mountains of the Southern Cape Karoo in the Western Cape. The climate is predominantly Mediterranean with a variable rainfall. As we do not standardise our oils, you will notice our product fragrance will vary from batch to batch depending on the season and the cultivar or year the particular oils were harvested. Our farmer believes that his oils age well, like a good wine, and that the fragrance improves with age.

" I then started applying to my ankle where the skin is very thin and vulnerable. Same result, the skin is stronger and not tender to touch "

" My skin has never felt so wonderful and many of my friends have commented on how lovely my skin is looking "
