There’s been a lot of talk about how bee venom is used in skincare to plump up and firm the skin. This is the low down – bee venom acts as an irritation as if it has been stung with the peptide Melittin. It causes an increased blood circulation to the deep layers of the skin and stimulates cell regeneration and the production of elastin and collagen to lift, plump and tighten the skin. This means that it can be used as a natural alternative to clinical treatments that involve painful needles.
The Venomenous face masque is a great pain-free alternative by BeeBio which includes pure bee venom, highly active medical grade Manuka honey, kiwifruit extract, avocado oil, rosehip oil, evening primrose oil and manuka oil. Bee Venom is the world’s most expensive active skin care ingredient at over $500,000 per kilogram. With these ingredients, the face mask supports skin cell regeneration and the production of collagen and elastin to plump and firm the skin. It also evens skin tone and brightens the skin.
