Savage Beauty is a South African drama series that was released on 12 May 2022 on Netflix. The series was written by Lebogang Mogashoa. The series is about the mystery woman who enmeshes herself in a strong family that controls a global beauty empire and is hiding some dark secrets in order to exact retribution for her tragic past.
Savage Beauty revolves around Bhengu Beauty (the global beauty empire) and Zinhle (the face of the brand) who has come to avenge the Bhengu family. The public is unaware that Don and Grace Bhengu's lucrative beauty business was founded on the immoral practice of testing a skin-lightening product on children. That is, until one of the two survivors, Zinhle Manzini, arrives 15 years later to reveal them and reduce their dominion to ashes.
