New Zealand Bee Venom
Bee venom contains a number of unique low-molecule peptides and “miracle” enzymes such as Phospholipase A2 and Hyaluronidase. 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 ageing, as the ageing process significantly decreases skin penetrability.
As we grow older, our 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 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.
