Want to discover youthful-looking skin whilst visibly smoothing the appearance of stress lines and wrinkles? Bee venom might be the superhero your skin is looking for.
Bee venom (Apitoxin) is a complex combination of chemical compounds produced by the busy worker bees. It contains a plethora of enzymes, peptides and amino acids that work on all levels of the skin to encourage naturally occurring cell regeneration, boost collagen formation, and accelerate the recovery of damaged skin cells.
When a bee normally stings, the bee dies as a result. But the bee venom collected for our skincare is carried out humanely. A pane of glass with a light electrical current running through it is placed near the hive. The bees then sting the glass, leaving venom behind. Thanks to the smooth glass, they don’t lose their stinger or their lives and the venom is collected.
The theory of bee venom in skincare is that it tricks skin into thinking it’s been
stung. This increases blood flow to the area, bringing oxygen and nutrients, while stimulating collagen and elastin production. Since bee venom first made it onto the beauty scene, royals and celebrities like Kate Middleton and Victoria Beckham are rumoured to be supporters of bee venom.
We've crafted our Beetox range to harnesses the powerful properties of UMF™ Mānuka Honey and the cell-renewing benefits of bee venom to give you a soft, rejuvenated complexion with renewed appearance and texture.
