From the company that gave us the Dragons Blood and Snake Venom skincare range, it should come as no surprise that Rodial have now harnessed the power of bees, but if you thought this new range was honey coated, think again. The Rodial Bee Venom Range has been developed by those clever cosmetologists, and it uses the active component of Apitoxin (a scientific name for bee venom) known as Melittin Peptide.
This, say Rodial, is a revolutionary ingredient that helps to increase blood circulation while gently plumping out and firming the skin. And even better, it also fills the fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a visibly smoother texture.
The Bee Venom Range comes in three products; Bee Venom Eye – £115, Bee Venom Moisturiser – £150 and Bee Venom Serum – £160.
As well as using bee venom, the products also contain the powerful effects of the P-Cell, Phytocomplex of Capsicum stem cells. These work to activate keratinocytes and endogenous protein synthesis which in turn stimulates cell metabolism and increases cell vitality. The other ingredient worth mentioning is the super packed Cyclopeptide-5 which stimulates important basement membrane proteins and growth factors, such as collagen IV.
The bee venom works by stimulating cell activity and also discouraging the stimulation of degrading enzymes of extracellular matrix protein such as colagenase 3 and elastase. On the other hand, Laminin IV works as binder, binding to the cell surface receptors in ensuring the stabilisation of cellular structures, while collagen IV is the net-forming type of collagens.
The Cyclopeptide-5 helps correcting the skin tone and plump and smooths the fine lines and wrinkles; BIO MARINE COLLAGEN 6 helps to enhance skin elasticity; and MariMoist® provides immediate and long-lasting hydration for a radiant complexion.
In blind trials conducted on 120, 88.29% of people who trialed the product would recommend to a friend and 85.50% of people who trialed this product would buy the product.
