No longer will you have to use your sleeve or a rough paper towel to wipe your brow, face and neck, hoping you don't reach that "breaking point" where people notice your perspiration.  Whether you're stepping into the subway on a hot summer day, about to attend an important business meeting, or just need a way to cool down, Zero K will instantly do the trick.  Zero K wipes are disposable, easy-to-carry, and scientifically designed to cool you down when you need it most. 


How it works 

Zero K’s cooling formula is menthol-based and was developed over several years in conjunction with expert cosmetic chemists at a National Science Foundation certified lab. 

When you start to feel hot, and sweat is inevitable, simply apply the wipe to your face and neck as well as any other part of your body that feels hot.  This will cool your skin down and reduce sweating, allowing you to perform your best.

Zero K comes in a pack of five ready-to-use disposable, unscented wipes. Zero K's formula is produced by a certified US-based manufacturing partner and the wipes are assembled in the US.

Our story 

We are two friends and former co-workers who live in New York City. Two years ago we were returning from a weekend getaway with a group of friends on a crowded, miserably hot bus, without air conditioning. Everyone on the bus began to sweat, and most of us used our t-shirt sleeves or spare paper towels to wipe our brows, which did not solve the problem and left us equally hot and sweaty.  

After this experience we did a search to find a product that could solve these everyday sweating situations, but could not find a single product on the market that was simple, portable and most importantly effective.  

So we decided to develop one ourselves, and after two years of hard work we are ready to launch it to the public.

Plan / Timeline 

Zero K has been fully designed and developed. The product is ready to go. We just need your help to place an order with our manufacturing partners. The funds raised through this campaign will be used to produce the first order of Zero K wipes, which will be delivered along with your other rewards to your door within 60 days of the successful completion of this Kickstarter campaign.

Risks and challenges

The product has already been fully developed and a prototype is made, so there are limited concerns with product development surprises.

Zero K solution is undergoing stability testing as we speak, and the lab has said that the formula has passed testing thus far and they do not anticipate any issues.

We rely on a few different manufacturing partners to produce Zero K wipes, so a delay in one stage of the process could cause delivery to take longer than 60 days.
