Everything To Know About Bee Venom Cream

You may have seen some creams which contain bee venom and you’ve been curious about how it works and what it does to help with anti-ageing and overall skin health. It’s not surprising – bee venom cream has been creating quite the buzz in the beauty world with its promise of fighting wrinkles and other signs of ageing, all without the pain, recovery time and cost of surgery. Even more, this natural ingredient is cruelty free and does not harm the bees during extraction.

So, we’ve compiled a complete guide of all the things you need to know about bee venom cream to help you decide if it deserves a place in your daily skincare routine.

What Is Bee Venom Cream?

Bee venom cream, or bee sting cream, is exactly what the name suggests – a face cream made with bee’s venom.

But before you panic, it’s harmless to you and no bees are hurt in this process. The venom is, instead, extracted using a soft glass pane that bees are encouraged to sting after they have been attracted to it by a gentle electric current.

Contrary to what its name might imply, it's a non-invasive solution designed to improve your skin's appearance by stimulating your blood circulation, collagen and elastin production. As a result, your skin looks plumper and firmer – lifting, filling and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.

What Are The Ingredients In Bee Venom Cream?

At the heart of bee venom cream are two key ingredients: bee venom itself and manuka honey. Bee venom is rich in Melittin, stimulating the skin's natural responses to healing and rejuvenation. Manuka honey adds a layer of antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant benefits, assisting the cream's effectiveness in skincare.

How Does Bee Venom Cream Work?

Bee venom works by ‘tricking’ your skin into thinking that it has been stung. As a defence mechanism, your body starts to increase the blood flow in the face – treating the area with fresh oxygen and nutrients that stimulate the production of natural collagen and elastin, as well.

The increased collagen and elastin levels generate new skin cells which help in lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, ultimately having an anti-ageing effect. This response helps to firm, plump, and smooth the skin.

Bee Venom Benefits For Skin

Reduces Crows Feet

By stimulating collagen production, bee venom can help minimise the appearance of crow's feet, offering a smoother, more youthful look around the eyes where signs of ageing often appear first.

Aids In Fighting Acne

Bee venom possesses antimicrobial properties that makes it an effective treatment of mild to moderate acne. It helps in reducing inflammation and can prevent acne breakouts. 

Reduces The Effects Of Eczema 

For those dealing with eczema, bee venom cream can offer relief of itchiness and severity. Its anti-inflammatory qualities soothe the skin, easing discomfort associated with eczema flare-ups.

Creates A Growing Complexion 

Bee venom triggers a healing response from your body, increasing blood flow which can produce a radiant effect. This natural brightness is a testament to the cream’s ability to rejuvenate and plump the skin.


How To Use Bee Venom Cream

Incorporating bee venom cream into your skincare routine is simple. It’s recommended to try a small amount first and leave it for 24 hours to ensure no irritation or adverse reaction occurs from its use. After cleansing, simply apply a small amount of bee venom cream to your face, neck and neckline (while avoiding the eye area). For the best results, complement it with a gentle moisturiser to lock in the benefits and hydration.
