The Legend of Bee Derived Skincare
Since ancient times, honey has been used as Mother Nature’s most potent beauty enhancer. One of revered Egyptian queen Cleopatra’s most pervasive legends is that of her milk and honey baths. She is also said to have combined it with other natural ingredients to create beautifying face masks, and massaged honey into her hair to soften and strengthen it.
Throughout history, bee products have been used for beautifying purposes, and extensive recent research has been carried out on their properties. Bee derivatives, including Manuka Honey, nutritious Royal Jelly and Bee Venom, are now considered by many to have strong skin plumping, purifying, and protective qualities. They are rich in numerous health enhancers, such as organic acids, multi-minerals, amino acids, vitamins, and enzymes, to revitalise and rebalance your skin.
The Secret Behind Beelift
Skin Doctors takes huge pride in Beelift’s unique blend of premium active ingredients that enhance the bee derived products’ enriching qualities, including innovative Trylagen® and Hyadisine®. These are complex infusions of peptides, amino acids, proteins and key enzymes, formulated to target the appearance of wrinkles as well as lift, tighten, firm and plump your skin. Botanical Green Tea extract has also been added, as it’s known for its revitalising, brightening and protective properties.
In union with Trylagen®, Hyadisine® and Green Tea, cosmetic application of the venom derived compound Melittin ‘tricks’ your skin into believing it has been lightly stung. This stimulates a tingling skin cell renewal, intended to help boost collagen and elastin production. Precious Manuka Honey and Royal Jelly extract are then blended into the luscious cream for their soothing, calming properties. With this process, Beelift aspires to cumulatively give you a lifted, tighter, plumper silhouette.

An Ethical Approach
Skin Doctors does not participate in animal testing, and places a high value on natural ingredients and harvesting them respectfully. Historically, extracting bee venom was cruel and lethal to the bee. However, modern methods involve using a mild electric stimulation that causes the bee no harm, and leaves them happy and free to blissfully fly away.
Directions for use
Beelift cream is an easy, simple and pleasurable to use addition to your skincare routine. Thoroughly cleanse your face with your favourite cleanser and pat dry. With dry fingertips, apply a small amount of Beelift treatment to your face, avoiding the eye area, neck and décolletage. Apply your choice of moisturising product.
As this product contains bee venom, do not use if allergic to bee stings, and please take care to thoroughly read the ingredients in case of other allergies. Patch test twenty four hours before using, and please read all included instructions.
