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.
