The main active component of bee venom is the peptide, melittin which is known to have many positive effects including increasing blood circulation as well as anti-inflammatory and antibacterial actions.
Function & Benefits
Skin reacts to Bee Venom as an irritation as if it has been lightly stung with Melittin. This results in increased blood circulation to the deep layers of the skin, stimulating cell regeneration and the production of elastin and collagen to lift, plump and tighten the skin.
With its lifting, plumping and tightening action, Bee Venom provides a natural alternative to invasive clinical treatments
With increasing age, the skin's cell renewal process becomes less efficient. Tissue repair and cell regeneration slow down. Our independent scientific research has shown that BeeBio Bee Venom enhances skin cell renewal by more than 80% compared to controls, making it a very powerful anti-aging ingredient.
