BEE VENOM SKIN CARE
Venofye features a unique skincare ingredient known as apitoxin or bee venom. Its the latest buzz in the world of skin care, and for all the right reasons. A 2015 study revealed that bee-venom serum may be an effective option for wrinkle improvement. 1
What Causes Wrinkles & Reduced Elasticity In The First Place?
The production of collagen and elastin proteins in skin decline with age. Loss of these essential skin building blocks results in reduced elasticity and firmness, fine lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles. To make matters even worse, modern day lifestyles, improper diet and polluted environments only accelerate the aging process. Daily care of your skin may help to counteract this process. 2
Are Bees Harmed In The Collection Of Their Venom?
Usually, when a bee stings a person, it loses its stinger, which ultimately results in its death. However, collecting bee venom is neither stressful for the bees, nor is it harmful. Bee venom is usually collected using a glass sheet which encourages the bees to pump out a small amount of venom into the glass. This sheet is then removed from the beehive and the venom is sent for purification. The bee continues with its normal life because stinging the glass doesn’t force it to lose its stinger. 3
Is it Safe?
Bee venom skin care products are safe for use on all types of skin. However, if you’re allergic to bees, we highly advise checking with your dermatologist before using such products.
A number of international stars and royalty believe in bee venom therapies and products. Kate Middleton reportedly used bee venom treatments before the royal wedding. Famous faces such as Gwenyth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue are also reported fans of bee venom products.
