Bee venom comes from bees (of course!).

There are many claims about bee venom being anti-aging. It is often called "natural botox". This is because it causes inflammation when applied to the skin. However, further studies are needed to look into the benefits of this ingredient.

Bee venom contains peptides, amino acids, and enzymes. It's main peptide is called melittin. Bee venom and its components are being studied for their antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties.

While cosmetics usually do not contain enough bee venom to cause an allergic reaction (unless you have an extreme allergy), we recommend you speaking with a professional if you have concerns.

Is vee venom cruelty-free?

Being cruelty-free means a brand does not experiment on animals. If you're worried about the well-being of the bees, we recommend looking more into the company of the product.

Is bee venom vegan?

Since bee venom is a product from bees, it is not considered vegan. However, there is much debate about this and many brands claim their bee products to be vegan.

Here at SkinSort, we are asking everyone to be kind to bees. They are important for many ecosystems and are endangered.
