What is Bee Venom and what is its benefits?

Bee venom is an apitoxin from the honey bee. A colourless liquid consisting of Melitten, Adolapin and Apamin.

Bee Venom gently fools the skin into thinking it has been stung, stimulating the facial muscles for an anti-aging effect on fine lines and wrinkles.

I am allergic to bees. Can I still use your products?

If you have an allergy to bee stings or any ingredients listed in our products please take care when trialing the product. Patch testing is recommended before use.



How do you get the venom from the bees? Do the bees die in the process?

Here at Bee’s Brilliance, we ensure the bee venom is strictly collected by organic methods only, meaning the bee is not handled or harmed in any way. The health of our bees is paramount to the quality of our ingredients and ensuring they continue to produce the finest quality venom.

Are your products safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women to use?

Yes. The entire Bees Brilliance range is suitable to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. As always, we recommend patch testing before use.

I think I have had a reaction to one of your products. What do I do?

How long will my Bees Brilliance products stay fresh and what is the best way to store them?

Bees Brilliance products are made with natural ingredients. We purposely present our products in smaller sizes so you finish them while their ingredients are still fresh and providing their maximum effectiveness.

We recommend you store creams in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat.

What does the open jar symbol mean?

The “period-after-opening symbol” tells you how long your product is good for after opening. If the open jar has a 6M on it, know that it will expire 6 months after breaking the seal, opening the lid.

I see “fragrance” listed on the label. Do your products contain synthetic fragrances?

Bees Brilliance products are formulated with 100% natural fragrances. The fragrances are sourced from France and are formulated with raw materials originating from natural sources.

Synthetic fragrances are a well known skin irritant.

Why are Bees Brilliance products different from other ‘natural’ products?

Yes! The term “natural” is used very loosely today, especially about skincare products. Many companies use petroleum-based ingredients, sodium lauryl sulfates, synthetic fragrances and preservatives, but call their products “natural” because they add a few botanical extracts. Bees Brilliance is different. We do not use cheap fillers, synthetic fragrances or chemical preservatives.

Here at Bee’s Brilliance we have a long history and understanding of the land and it’s native inhabitants. Our formulations are about the brilliance of natural ingredients that are the purest of gifts from nature, that don’t harm nature.

We handcraft our skincare products in our own newly established manufacturing facility in Brightwater, Nelson New Zealand. Because natural and quality are everything to us, we control every step of our skincare making process.
