Imagine a way of minimising wrinkles without injecting a needle into your skin. Bee Venom is just that.
It is considered a natural alternative to botox. The venom stimulates facial muscles for a natural anti-aging effect by smoothing and firming out fine lines and wrinkles. It takes around 10,000 bee stings to make just 1 gram of bee venom, which makes bee venom almost seven times more valuable than gold! In order to extract the bee venom, a pane of glass is placed alongside the hive. A small electrical current turns through, which encourages the bees to sting the surface. This means that the bees are not harmed in the process.
As the skin ages, it naturally loses collagen which results in fine lines and wrinkles. The product works by making the skin think it has been lightly stung (without the pain). The main component of bee venom is Melittin. The protein causes increased blood circulations, which means that the inner layers of the skin increase the production of elastin and collagen. The natural reaction of venom when you’re stung by a bee is swelling and itching in the skin. However, bee venom uses the properties of a bee sting and turns it into gentle and effective skin care product. The venom helps reduce sun damage, dark spots, blemishes and tightens the skin naturally. It’s a product popular among celebrities such as Kate Middleton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham and Kylie Bax.
