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 the rea­son Wild Ferns have used VENZ pu­ri­fied venom to en­sure you get the high­est qual­ity avail­able, which is also eth­i­cal and hu­mane.

Bee Venom is a unique multi-com­po­nent com­plex that has 18 bi­o­log­i­cal ac­tive com­pounds, found to have phar­ma­co­log­i­cal ac­tiv­ity. The main groups of com­pounds are en­zymes, pep­tides, aminos, sug­ars, phos­pho­lolipids and volatiles.

Bee Venom con­tains a num­ber of unique low-mol­e­cule pep­tides and “mir­a­cle” en­zymes such as Phos­pho­li­pase A2 and Hyaluronidase.

Ad­van­tages of us­ing Wild Ferns Bee Venom with Ac­tive Manuka Honey 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 ag­ing, as the ag­ing process sig­nif­i­cally 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 red blood cells and sup­ports nor­mal blood cir­cu­la­tion in the deep­est lay­ers of the skin, thus im­prov­ing me­tab­o­lism and stim­u­la­tion cell re­gen­er­a­tion as well as elastin and col­la­gen pro­duc­tion.

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

VENZ (Venom New Zealand) have in­vented a col­lec­tion de­vice for venom that doesn’t kill the bees. The de­vice con­sists of a glass sheet that is put at the bot­tom of the bee­hive. The glass sheet con­ducts a gen­tle elec­tric cur­rent. When the cur­rent is turned on, bees that are 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. The venom falls on the glass where it is col­lected and pu­ri­fied for stor­age, it is freezedried to en­sure that the venom’s bioac­tive ma­te­ri­als don’t ox­i­dise and de­com­pose. It takes one mil­lion stings on a col­lec­tor board to make 1g of dry venom.
