Wild Ferns Bee Venom Skincare Wild Ferns Bee Venom Skincare

Posted on by Lesley Armstrong

Wild Ferns has captured the remarkable benefits of purified Bee Venom from New Zealand, combined with Active Manuka Honey in a range of products that provide a regenerative skin therapy treatment.

Venom from the bee is renowned for its ability to create a younger looking complexion by stimulating the skin to encourage collagen and elastin production, helping to firm and plump facial tissue. 

Not all bee venom is equal, which is why Wild Ferns have used VENZ purified venom to ensure you get the highest quality available, but also which is ethical and humane.  Treat your skin to the very best.

Advantages of using Wild Ferns Bee Venom with active Manuka Honey

Bee Venom is a unique multi-component complex, in which 18 biologically active compounds have been found to have pharmacological activity.  The main groups of compounds are enzymes, peptides, amino acids, sugars, phospholipids and volatiles.

Bee venom contains a number of unique low-molecule peptides and "miracle" enzymes sucha s Phospholipase A2 and Hyaluronidase.

Phospholipase A2 dissolves the skin cell membrane and allows other ingredients to penetrate the skin cell, resulting in products 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, the hyaluronic matrix responsible for the moisture retention in skin becomes tougher has lower permeability.

Hyaluronidase accelerates disintegration of the old molecules and activates the synthesis of new molecules of hyaluronic acid by skin fibroblasts, thus improving skin permeability.

Other bee venom peptides, such as Melittin and Apamin are also known to provide additional anti-aging effects to skin.

Melittin is beneficial for the red blood 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.

Bee venom peptides stimulate facial muscles, thus providing a lifting and plumping effect.

Bee venom is a complex combination of chemical substances produced by the worker and queen honey bees.  The venom is used together with parts of the bee's anatomy (called the 'sting apparatus') to sting intruders in defense of the honey bee colony.  Drone (male) honey bees do not produce venom and do not have a sting apparatus.

Bee venom is produced in the venom (or acid) gland of the bee, and is stored in an adjacent sac in the bee's abdomen.  The amount of venom a bee has depends on its age.  Newly hatched bees don't have any venom at all, but the amount increases rapidly for the first two weeks of a worker bee's life, reaching a plateau of about 0.3mg (dry weight).

If a bee stings tough human skin, the whole apparatus pulls out the abdomen of the bee.  The venom sac is pulled out with it and it keeps pumping venom until it runs out.  Because the removal of the sting apparatus ruptures the bee's abdomen, the bee dies within a short period of time.

How Wild Ferns Bee Venom is collected

VENZ (Venom New Zealand) have invented a collection device for venom that does not kill the bee.  The devices consists of a glass sheet that is put on the bottom of the beehive.  The glass sheet conducts a gentle electric current.  When the current is turned on, bees on the sheet automatically stick out their stingers, and the action of the muscles pushing the stinger also pumps a small amount of venom out the end of the sting.  This venom falls on the glass where it is collected and purified for storage.  The venom is freeze-dried to ensure the venom's bioactive materials do not oxidise and decompose.  It takes one million sting deposits on a collector board to make 1g of dry venom, which is why the cost of bee venom skin care is so high.

Active Manuka Honey

Unique to New Zealand, Active Manuka AAH ( Antibacterial, Antioxidant Honey) 650+ has remarkable properties.  High in natural antioxidants, which neutralise free radicals, and the highest antibacterial activity reading of 650+, Active Manuka Honey is perfect to combine with Bee Venom.  These key ingredients achieve the perfect balance to assist in the health, wellbeing and natural enhancement of the skin.
