What's The Buzz About Bee Venom? - The Honey Collection

What's The Buzz About Bee Venom?

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.
