If you are sensitive to bee products or have sensitive skin we recommend performing a patch test first by applying a small amount of product to the skin and waiting 24 hours before checking for any skin reactions.

If you are allergic to bee stings, do not use the products containing bee venom.

If you are allergic to bee stings, do not use the products containing bee venom.

How is natural bee venom harvested?

Our BeeBio Bee Venom is derived from our own Honey Bees and is naturally harvested without injury to bees. New Zealand has pioneered the natural collection of bee venom form our bee hives. A small glass plate which has a small electrical charge is placed in front of each bee hive. When the bees land of the plate when returning to their hive they sting the glass plate which means they do not release their stingers in the process therefore the process is not harmful to the bees in any way. The liquid Venom is then allowed to dry in the sun and then collected in its natural state and is completely unprocessed before it is used in our skincare products.

To further protect our bees we only place the glass plate in front of the hive for a maximum of 30 minutes during the summer months when the 60,000 odd bees in each hive are their most active. This results in a very minimal disruption if any and allows our the bees to focus on the all-important collect of Pollen and Nectar during the summer harvesting season

Are bees killed in the venom collection process?

BeeBio is very bee friendly. Our collectors’ harvest our bee venom without injury to bees. Then the actual Bee Venom is a completely natural ingredient and unprocessed in any way.
