About Bee Venom
Bee venom is the key active in our skincare range, it improves skin by boosting collagen levels.
By inhibiting the impact of enzymes called matrix metalloproteinases, which is produced by overexposure to the sun among other factors, it is able to maintain elastin fibres. Reducing these enzymes leads to firmer, radiant and glowing skin.
Bee Venom, the fulcrum of our skincare range, contains more than 18 pharmacologically active compounds, including small peptides and enzymes, which play a major role in defending bee colonies.It has also been shown to have anti inflammatory and radio-protective properties against X-ray, gamma, and microwave radiation.
Bee Venom enhances skin conditions in many ways, the most important being improving skin collagen levels. Formation of wrinkles, blemishes and dark spots are just the visible manifestations of the decrease in collagen and elastine production in the skin. By inhibiting the impact of enzymes called matrix metalloproteinases, which is produced by overexposure to the sun among other factors, it is able to maintain elastin fibres. Reducing these enzymes leads to firmer, radiant skin which glows. In addition, bee venom can stimulate the production of collagen which returns skin to its youthful, firm best. At the same time bee venom stimulates us to produce larger quantities of histamine that is well known as potent neutralizer of free radicals, known to speed the ageing process of our skin.
Research studies have shown statistically significant reduction in wrinkles after 8-12 weeks use, with an increased efficacy on sun damaged skin. In addition Bee Venom has been shown to alleviate rheumatoid arthritis, and to possess antibacterial properties. Additionally, Bee Venom may possess anticancer properties and may potentially diminish tumour size by selectively killing cancer cells. We at Bee Sting Cosmetics feel privileged to work with and harness such a wonderful natural innovation in our products.
At BSC we pride ourselves on quality. Mellatin is the key active compound within Bee Venom that stimulates elastin and collagen growth. Melittin has many beneficial functions: stimulation of insulin secretion and widening of blood vessels. It also has strong bactericidal properties and unlike with antibiotics the bacteria are not able to develop a resistance to melittin. In combination with the other carefully curated ingredients we believe our Bee Venom creams are the best on the market. Over 65% of our competitors use cosmetic grade venom containing less than 45% Melletin. We only use the highest quality pharmaceutical grade Bee Venom obtained with our own proprietary technology and methodology. This ensures the wellbeing of the bees and ensures premium quality ingredients for our products. This wondrous substance is being harvested most humanely and not only is it safe and not harmful to the bees, but when done right, we end up with stronger and healthier colonies.

Honey bees naturally make honey for their colony and because it’s food for strength, it’s loaded with nutrients that humans can benefit from as well. B vitamins, calcium, zinc, potassium, and iron are just a handful of ingredients found in honey that we commonly look towards to alleviate mild skin conditions. In addition to all the vitamins mentioned above, honey is loaded with antioxidants that neutralize free radicals. Active antioxidants contained in honey are flavonoids, phenolic acid, certain proteins, gluconic acid, ascorbic acid (vitamine C) etc. Antioxidants protect against acne, wrinkles, and dry skin. Raw, organic forms of honey also have hydrogen peroxide which contributes to an antibiotic property. Yes we use raw honey which is unequivocally always better when it comes to use for skincare products. Other types of honey are heated and filtered during processing in order to make it flow faster during processing and increase the shelf life which unfortunately diminishes its effectiveness and enzymatic properties.
Comfrey was once commonly called Knitbone because of its amazing ability to heal broken bones and “knit” them back together again. This compound is a cell proliferant which helps to regenerate wounded areas of the body and speed up new healthy cell growth. Scientists have recently discovered that this compound found in the common comfrey plant can help to keep skin youthful and less susceptible to the formation of wrinkles. The comfrey plant contains several beneficial compounds which help to revive tired, aged, wrinkled skin. Comfrey, when used regularly on the skin, makes it softer, more supple and elastic. The result, revitalised and rejuvenated skin that glows.

The word ‘propolis’ coined by Aristotle, means “Before The City”, or “Defender Of The City”. Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees produce from tree buds sap flows. When they combine the sap with their own beeswax, they create a sticky product used as a coating to build their hives. Propolis also acts as a natural disinfectant against bacteria within the hive. Using Propolis in skin care products provides a similar defense for our skin. Propolis is the focus of many scientific research projects surrounding it’s healing properties. It is a bee natural antibiotic that effectively destroys over 100 types of microorganisms, bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa etc. Propolis is also known in science as an antioxidant, an emollient and is being studied for skin cancer treatment and cancer protection. Propolis will assist in balancing, healing and soothing problematic skin. It also accelerates the rate of cell growth and decongests pores. Our process of propolis integration keeps up to 98% of its natural features and uses its properties to naturally restore and maintain skin structure.
Retinol is commonly known as Vitamin A. Vitamin A refers to a collection of organic compounds, one of those being retinol. Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that the body uses to maintain healthy skin, teeth, and vision. Retinol works in skin by promoting faster growth rates, thus producing fresher, radiant skin.
