DermoProf Skincare is an innovative South African facial skincare brand formulated by a pharmacist. It is a brand that retails for homecare maintenance of targeted skin challenges. It aims to maintain healthy looking skin and in doing so, alleviates problems that arise in skin.
Each product has been designed carefully and with precision with the goal of achieving desired results for specific targeted skin conditions over time. The ingredients used, are combined in a unique way to deliver results and there are no toxic ingredients. The main ingredients have been tested for efficacy and toxicity at the University of Pretoria. Results were proven to be highly effective with no toxic effects. The products comply with EU standards that regulate cosmetic category skincare.
DermoProf’s signature approach is that it eliminates the need for toners, exfoliators, masks, and unnecessary products that do not necessarily add value and in fact become a burden especially when compliance is key. There is no need for separate night creams and day creams. If a product range is wide with many steps in a regimen, the whole system becomes unsustainable both practically and financially. In today’s busy and economically constrained times, consumers want quick and cost-effective regimens that fulfill the complete needs of their skin. Each range offers a long term management system and therefore, there is no limitation as to how long each range can be used. In fact, it is better to use it forever, as the results are accumulative over time and the products have the amazing ability to manage skin so that there are no imbalances.
Sunscreens are advised to be used after applying these products, allowing 5mins before sunscreen application. You will find none of the creams have a built-in SPF, as the SPF profile of ingredients can impede the penetration of important active ingredients found in DermoProf products.
It is important to note that although each targeted skincare range has its specific effects, they do also have additional overlapping effects, for example, the acne range not only eliminates breakouts but also deal with marks that consumers so often feel stressed about. Because hyperpigmentation is mostly found in ages 30+, the products are loaded with all the good ingredients including antioxidants and vitamins that assist ageing skin. The brand has been around since 2015 and not been marketed until the end of 2018. Every detail of the products has been refined since then.

Klowki promises to supply you with high quality, waterless,
organic products, easily absorbed by the skin. Their products are safe to use,
and they provide natural vitamin A, D, E and K to the skin, with an added
Palmitic Acid- Protects skin from the environment and
Omega 7 (Palmitoleic Acid)- Anti-Microbial;
CLA- Anti- Calms inflamed skin and kills bacteria;
Stearic Acid- found in our own oils, this amazing fatty acid brings moisture to
the skin, softens, rejuvenates and has anti-inflammatory properties;
Omega 9 (Oleic Acid)- Awesome carrier to the other oils and helps penetrate
these nutrients deep into the skin.
So, what does each jar contain?
Not only does your body need bioavailable nutrition, but so
does your skin, as at least 60% of all the 400 to 600 toxins in common skincare
products are absorbed into your bloodstream daily. From soap, to make-up, body
lotions, perfumes washing powders and more. The radicals that your skin crave
are found in Klowki products, as tallow is biologically identical to your skin.
Why use Klowki?
Because you absorb, and actually “eat” your skincare
ingredients, Klowki wants to make sure that you have 100% “edible” skincare
products. Their skincare products are food for your skin.
Klowki products are 100% waterless. Water evaporates and
dehydrates the skin when applied topically.
Klowki packaging is 100% plastic free. They use glass containers for the skincare range and aluminium tins for the larger volumes, like the baby balms and body scrubs.
They add new products regularly, and our range currently
Hydrating eye cream: to prevent and treat
those bags under the eyes;
Whipped moisturiser: To moisturise the face;
Body scrubs: To exfoliate and moisturise the
face and body;

of blackheads, acne and other skin impurities as well as skin discolouration;
Tattoo balm: Relieving pain after a tattoo,
and to promote the healing of the skin;
Lip balm: Specially formulated to moisturise
and protect those soft South African lips.
Klowki relies heavily on the anti-inflammatory properties of
stearic acid, found in tallow.
Baby balm: With tallow, lanolin and an
antiseptic, they still need to find a better treatment for nappy and body rash
as well as cradle cap. We actually have adults using this product to use as a
daily body balm.
Jacque – Founder of Klowki shares how it all started:
My interaction with tallow started in 2017. My daughter,
then aged 14, suffered from seasonal eczema since a young age. It was heart
breaking to see her go through this at every season change. Having been in
the pharmaceutical and healthcare environment for more than 20
years, with the experience and contacts I accumulated over this time (I am
a qualified pharmacist’s assistant), I was extremely frustrated, as I was not
able to help.
We tried antihistamines, cortisone, corticosteroids, and a
million other products. Oral medication had little to no effect and some
creams and ointments might help for one season, but not the next. As the
bills added up, I spent countless hours researching eczema and possible
solutions, but it was my wife that found some information on
I was sceptical at first, but having nothing to
lose, and tallow being a natural product, we tried it. I was amazed, and my
daughter out of her skin. (pardon the pun)
If only I knew about this sooner!!
I started investigating other options, and it wasn’t
long before I added other ingredients, like essential oils, castor-
and coconut oil, coal tar, coffee, argon oil and baobab oil. We even
started to infuse our products with the likes of rooibos tea, etc.
We started sharing this product with our friends and
family, and the benefits seemed endless. The baby balm was soon created,
which is an excellent body balm for babies. We also have the best
treatment and deterrent for nappy rash and cradle cap, and that is a fact.
Obviously, from this, we started using and promoting tallow
for other skin treatments, like acne treatments, scar and stretch
mark treatments, moisturizers, foot and body scrubs, to name a few, and
tallow did not disappoint.

Coconut oil is used in many natural face products and for good reason: it’s naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and moisturising. Coconut oil is composed primarily of nourishing fatty acids and is especially high in lauric acid. It also contains vitamin E and healthy fats, which help to make skin smooth.
Exfoliating Sponges and benefits of exfoliation you didn’t know you were getting:
-It unclogs pores – When you’re exfoliating your skin, you’re effectively unclogging your pores;
helps other skincare products penetrate deeper;
evens skin tone;
boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage;
increases cell turnover;
-It stimulates collagen synthesis.
When this happens, smoother skin cells push their way up to the skin’s surface. Exfoliating helps speed up your skin’s process and helps it to behave younger.
Physical exfoliators work against the top layers of the skin to remove dead, dulling surface cells via rubbing and sloughing. Exfoliating once
a week will remove dead skin cells to lighten and brighten
