Purity from nature’s best
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.
