Zero Xeno is a company that focuses on xenoestrogen education and manufactures products that are xenoestrogen-free. We have a line of consumable products under the categories of 'Beauty' 'Baby' 'Body' 'Clean' 'Elixir' that are formulated with organic, food grade and naturally derived ingredients. The company was born out of necessity due to hormone related health issues personally experienced by our founder, Bonnie Penner. She has spent the past 28 years perfecting her formulations to be incredibly effective, natural and of course, xenoestrogen-free!
Everything we sell and/or support is free of known xenoestrogens. We strive to stay on top of current scientific research regarding hormone disrupting chemicals in order to educate consumers on the dangers of endocrine disruptors. We choose to use terminology that is easy to understand and work hard to provide you with solutions that are simple and achievable. We feel this empowers individuals to make changes that affect our world in very real and tangible ways.
Xenoestrogens are chemicals that mimic estrogen in your body. Xeno means foreign, so the term xenoestrogen simply means estrogen that comes from a foreign source. Xenoestrogens are also referred to as:
- Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDC's)
- Hormone Disrupting Chemicals
- Hormone Disruptors
- Fake Estrogens
- Estrogen Mimicking Chemicals
- and many other names....
Xenoestrogens mimic estrogen in your body, wreaking havoc on your hormonal balance and potentially creating a myriad of problems. Recent research indicates that xenoestrogens are affecting the world we live in from male alligators unable to reproduce to parabens being linked to breast cancer in women. Most personal care products are riddled with xenoestrogens such as phthalates, parabens, petroleum chemicals and come packaged in BPA or BPS plastic containers. Xenoestrogen chemicals can also suppress the hormones in your thyroid, causing fatigue, muscle and joint pain, along with endometriosis, fibrocystic breast disease, ovarian cysts, migraines, severe PMS, uterine cysts, increased breast and uterine cancer, reduced testosterone in males and even behavioral changes.

The Zero Xeno Movement aims to raise awareness about harmful xenoestrogens that can be found in products the average person uses every day. Individuals who join this movement are becoming aware of where harmful estrogen mimicking chemicals are hidden and are in the process of switching to products that are more natural. We desire to teach consumers how to make informed choices and help them avoid these endocrine disrupting chemicals. We focus on teaching people how to read ingredients and check labels so that they can identify products that may harm their health. By limiting the amount of xenoestrogens our world is exposed to we can achieve a xenoestrogen-free world!

Yes. Our ingredients are all biodegradable and come in BPA/BPS-free and phthalate-free packaging. All our packaging is recyclable and free of xenoestrogen-leaching chemicals. We also use recycled paper to pack our shipments and online orders.
Zero Xeno’s personal care products will not strip away the natural acid mantle of your hair and skin. In fact, they are formulated to help replace it naturally. A great example of this is our Kombucha Conditioner. Unlike most commercial conditioners (including many organic brands), our hair products don't coat your hair with silicones, phthalates or other chemicals. We make our own kombucha with organic green, black, and rooibos tea. By naturally replacing your hair’s acid mantle, you close your hair’s cuticle, which in turn gives your hair strength along with lots of shine, body, bounce and softness while protecting your skin and scalp.
We formulated all of our products to be free of known allergens. Therefore we are proud to offer products that are free of gluten, soy, nuts and of course xenoestrogens!
Colloidal silver is really just silver suspended in water. A colloid is a particle that's broken down and mixed into and/or suspended in a liquid. Silver is naturally found in our food and water and colloidal silver is microscopic silver floating in distilled water. Many people ingest colloidal silver and claim it has cured them of many different ailments. Colloidal silver has very powerful potential when used against viruses, bacteria and other harmful molds and fungi. Colloidal silver's popularity as an antibiotic peaked in the 1920's to 1930's before pharmaceutical-based antibiotics became the medicine of choice.
Zero Xeno chooses to use colloidal silver in our household cleaners to assist you in making healthy choices and reducing your exposure to endocrine disrupting antibacterials like Triclosan. Toilets, sinks and kitchen counters can harbor a plethora of pathogens, which in turn can contaminate you and your loved ones. Colloidal Silver is an easy and simple way to keep your home clean and safe. Zero Xeno Toilet Bowl Natural Cleaner and Multi-Purpose Natural Cleaner both contain colloidal silver.
The process of fermentation used to produce kombucha naturally breaks down nutrients to a more bio-available form. It converts inorganic minerals to the easily assimilated organic form, making kombucha a mineral powerhouse for the skin and scalp. Kombucha contains organic acids that help to remove dead, superficial skin cells. These organic acids reveal smoother, brighter and fresher skin and allow increased absorption of beneficial ingredients into the skin. Kombucha naturally contains amino acids that are the building blocks of living tissue and essential for cellular function. The topical application of amino acids helps the skin and scalp to retain moisture and balances the skin's sebum production. Kombucha also contains vitamins B & C in their natural form.
Zero Xeno products are not tested on animals in any way. On the contrary, our products are safe for all your four-legged friends!
We accept Visa, MasterCard, and PayPal.
Even though we don’t use chemical preservatives, Zero Xeno products maintain their quality and benefits for approximately 3 to 4 years. This is mainly due to the naturally high antioxidant, unrefined base ingredients we utilize in our formulations. Many times natural preservation of our products is achieved through the pH of the product, and/or the addition of antioxidants like rosemary oil or natural vitamin E. If the use of a preservative is necessary, we choose a natural hydrogen peroxide based preservative system. This preserves our products by tapping into the natural antibacterial properties of oxygen.
