Abeeco's Naturally Whitening Mask is essentially a Bee Venom Mask but with the added benefits of natural whitening and blemish reduction. The powerful combination of Vitamin A (Retinol) and Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) work to fade age and sun spots and diminsh blemishes and uneven skin tone. Contains New Zealand Bee Venom and Manuka Honey to plump and firm the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Suitable for all skin types.
How does it work?
The Bee Venom contained in the abeeco Naturally Whitening Mask is used to fool the skin into thinking it has been lightly stung. This in turn stimulates the production of the naturally occurring chemicals collagen and elastin, thereby creating a tightening and smoothing effect. The effects are cumulative, that is, the longer you use it the more obvious the effects will be. A tightening effect can generally be felt soon after application.
In addition this formula contains Niacinamide, a natural derivative of vitamin B3. Niacinamide is described to have several benefits to aging skin including the ability to visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores, redness, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and a weakened skin surface.
The first time you use this product we recommend you do a patch test. Apply a small amount on a section of your face and leave on for 20 minutes.
This product can be used as either a mask or a cream -
As a Mask: Massaging gently, apply a generous layer to your face and neck and leave for 20 minutes. Wash off.
As a Night Cream: Massaging gently, apply a generous layer over the face and neck and leave on overnight.
Please note: A slight tightening sensation upon application is normal, this is just the Bee Venom getting to work. If you don't feel a tightening sensation, don't worry, it's still working!
Warnings and Precautions
Do not use this product if you have an allergy to bee stings or any of the ingredients listed. Patch test recommended. Discontinue to use if skin allergy or discomfort occurs. Do not use if skin is injured or swollen. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight and high temperature. Store in a cool, dry place. Keep out of reach of children.
Q: How do you get the Venom from the bees? Do the bees die in the process? A: A special glass surface is placed alongside the hive and a weak electrical current is run through it, which encourages the bees to gently sting the glass. The tiny amount of Bee Venom is collected from that glass surface. Because the bees are stinging a surface they can't penetrate, their abdomens remain intact - so they don't die.
Q: Do you have to do a patch test on the skin? A: Yes, as with any beauty product a patch test on a small area of skin should be done before application.
Q: How quickly can results be expected? A: Everybody’s skin is different and therefore everybody’s skin reacts in different ways to treatment. You may see small results straight away but for some it may take longer. The effects are cumulative, i.e. the longer you use the product, the better the results.
Q: Does it have any side effects? A: No it has no known side effects unless you have a bee allergy.
