According to Dr. Sang Mi Han from the National Academy of Agricultural Sciences of South Korea, poison is able to activate the production of collagen, which is essential for skin elasticity.
He has created a line of cosmetics, which is based on bee poison. And the New Zealand Manuka Doctor company promises that this product will replace Botox in the markets, as its alternative.
The creators warn that when the products based on poison are applied onto the skin, people feel some tingling. At this moment, the organism thinks that it has been bitten by a bee. As a result, the place of an imaginary bite is supplied with blood, and the production of collagen and elastin is stimulated.
By the way, a special technology has been developed to collect bee poison without killing the insects. Bees are forced to bite the collecting glass. When enough poison is accumulated on the collecting surface, it is dried and cleaned. Only purified poison is used in a cream.
