How does bee venom work for skin?
Bee venom is a unique multi-component complex that contains more than 18 biologically active compounds. Those active substances have been studied in depth and their skin energizing properties have been well researched in the twentieth century.
Bee venom has multiple beneficial effects on the body: it improves blood circulation, increases physical strength and well-being, support function of the pituitary-cortical system, has anti-oxidant effects and support immune system.
Bee venom contains a number of unique low-molecule peptides and “miracle” enzymes such as Phospholipase A2 and Hyaluronidase.
Phospholipase A2 dissolves the skin cell membrane and allows other ingredients to penetrate into the skin cell, resulting in a product working more effectively.
Hyaluronidase enhances the delivery of different active ingredients across the skin barrier. It is very important for fighting dermal ageing, as the ageing process significantly decreases skin penetrability. As we grow older, hyaluronic matrix responsible for the moisture retention in our skin becomes tougher and low -permeable. Hyaluronidase accelerates disintegration of the old molecules and activates the synthesis of new molecules of hyaluronic acid by skin fibroblasts, thus improving skin penetrability.
Other bee venom peptides, such as Melittin or Apamin are also known to provide additional anti-aging effects to skin:
Melittin is beneficial for the blood red cells and supports normal blood circulation in the deepest layers of skin, thus improving metabolism and stimulating cell regeneration as well as elastin and collagen production
Apamin, one of the unique peptides of bee venom, has beneficial effects on the central and peripheral nervous system and stimulates the secretion of serotonin and dopamine, which increases the sense of well-being in humans.
Bee venom peptides stimulate facial muscles, thus providing a lifting and plumping effect.
Suitable for all skin types over 27 years old
New Zealand Patented Bee Venom VENZ™ is a powerful bee product with rapid anti-ageing effect on human skin. It contains a unique polypeptide and enzymes complex that provides deep penetration, improves microcirculation and stimulates the facial muscles, thus creating lifting, tightening and firming effect.
UMF Manuka Honey is unique to New Zealand and is also a perfect ingredient for skin care, due to being rich in natural proteins, vitamins, minerals and having a high content of hydrogen peroxide. Manuka honey has proven to be excellent for cleansing the skin of impurities as well as nourishing the skin to assist a beautiful, vibrant complexion. It assists in keeping skin hydrated, fresh and healthy.
Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil rapidly penetrates the outer layers of the epidermis, deeply nourishing the skin while providing a smooth, soft layer of protection against dehydration.
Olive Squalane is a botanical lipid naturally derived primarily from olives. Olives contain the largest percentage of squalane among all of the commonly known vegetable oils. It is an antioxidant, prevents UV damage and the formation of age spots, promotes cell growth and is an antibacterial.
Sweet Almond Oil moisturises, nourishes the skin and makes it smooth and soft.
Trifluoroacetyl Tripeptide-2 is 3-amino acids peptide, which boosts the production of key components at the dermal/epidermal junciton for optimal skin structural support. It improves epidermis consistency and rebuilds collagen matrix lifting the skin. The peptide works the same as natural protein contained in the skin – elafin. Thanks to biological activity Progeline™ not only inhibits skin ageing but also helps to rejuvenate it visibly.
Sodium Hyaluronate forms an air permeable layer and penetrates into the dermis, thus boosting the elasticity and hydration of the skin. The protective barrier on the skin locks in moisture, which gives the skin a youthful appearance.
Olive Fruit Extract inhibits harmful free radical damage within the body through antioxidant properties
Betaine or trimethylglycine is derived from the sugar beet. It is widely used to control water balance in skin, lightening effect on the hyper pigmented spots and provides a soft, moisturizing and smooth skin feel, strengthen the skin barrier.
Organic Shea Butter is a particularly effective moisturizer as it is packed with fatty acids that are needed to retain skin moisture and elasticity. Shea butter protects the skin from both environmental and free-radical damage.
Pomegranate Extract protects against photoaging, supports skin cell regeneration, promotes healing, and prevents cancerous changes due to UV exposure. Pomegranate extract is a super antioxidant with astringent and anti-bacterial and inflammatory properties. It is a great addition to the skincare world for its ability to fight free-radicals and thus the signs of aging. It protects against photoaging, supports skin cell regeneration, promotes wound healing, and prevents cancerous changes. Pomegranate is believed to provide a broad spectrum of support for aging skin.
Cucumber Extract derived from cucumber, it is known for its soothing and astringent effect. It is moisture binding, aids in removing dead skin cells, alleviates inflammations and irritants. It also tones and tightens skin.
Tocopherol (Vitamin E) is an antioxidant that helps to protect the epidermis from early stages of ultraviolet light damage.
Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A) allows for safe and stable delivery of antioxidant vitamins to the skin, prevent free radical damage, UV protection. Due to its antioxidant properties, it is also a great anti-aging ingredient, and helps promote a softer smoother skin.
