How to remove woocommerce tab?

the products in our woocommerce shop don't need any of the default tabs so I have managed to disable them being that I only need to have the product description below the product however, while I want to keep the actual description, I believe the tab itself is redundant since there aren't any other tabs.

Basically, I want to remove the tab's & title altogether but keep the content box below it without modifying the woocommerce core php template file. Is there a way to add a filter to my WordPress theme's functions.php?

function woocommerce_default_product_tabs( $tabs = array() ) {
global $product, $post;

// Description tab - shows product content
if ( $post->post_content ) {
$tabs['description'] = array(
'title' => __( 'Description', 'woocommerce' ),
'priority' => 10,
'callback' => 'woocommerce_product_description_tab'

While CSS is great, if the stylesheet doesn't load correctly, you could end up showing someone tabs without meaning to. It is best to remove the content before loading (server side), by using a filter, as you had mentioned.

See code below as provided from Woothemes for unsetting data tabs

add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_tabs', 'woo_remove_product_tabs', 98 );

function woo_remove_product_tabs( $tabs ) {

unset( $tabs['description'] );          // Remove the description tab
unset( $tabs['reviews'] );          // Remove the reviews tab
unset( $tabs['additional_information'] );   // Remove the additional information tab

return $tabs;
