Back in 2008, I made the first ever bee venom mask which I used on my clients in my facials, at this point I didn’t realise it would hold such worldwide reputation. My clients we’re loving this mask so they started asking if they could buy it! I was amazed by this, so I thought right, I’m going to turn my formula into a painted formula (Abeetoxin) and then sell my bee venom mask. Originally, I only had the one mask on my mind, until someone from Kenya contacted me, they ran a bee charity and were interested in this mask and how it works. After multiple conversations, they then offered if I would like their Queen bee’s venom. So this is when I thought of the idea Silver, Black, and Gold.
Bee venom is the clear odorless liquid that’s released from a honeybee when it stings. It consists of more than 20 known compounds, the most prominent being Melittin, a protein that boasts powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-wrinkle properties. Our anti-aging formula ABEETOXIN uses bee venom to trick the skin into thinking it’s actually been stung, which causes the body to direct blood towards that area, stimulating the production of collagen, which strengthens tissue and elastin, which helps the skin to remain firm and bounce back into shape.
So how do I collect bee venom with no harm to our bees?
I release a small electrical current through a pane of glass that causes the bees no harm but encourages them to sting the glass, depositing their venom. When a bee stings a person, the stinger gets released into the flesh, causing the bee to die. But when they sting glass, the stinger can’t come out because it’s too hard, but their brain tells them they’ve stung, and so not to sting again.
Next step, owning your own bee venom mask!
I have designed three different bee venom masks, Silver, Black, and Gold. They are all completely organic and work to control the facial muscles for tightening, firming and lifting; whilst penetrating fine lines, frown lines and wrinkles and giving that immediate anti-aging effect. The most important difference between the three masks is the one vital ingredient. So if you’re new to Heaven’s bee venom masks you’d start with the Silver – this contains venom of the worker bee. If you have been using Heaven’s bee venom masks for over a year now upgrade yourself to the Black – this contains a quarter rare bee venom, giving you a stronger sting. If you’re like me and completely obsessed with these heavenly bee venom masks use the Gold! The Gold bee venom mask contains the world’s rarest bee venom and only 500 are made annually.
