Marta at "truth in Aging" reviews BV-9 Platinum Bee Venom Cream.

Bee venom and copper peptides – now there was an irresistible combination! I have long been a convert to copper peptides as a powerful anti-aging ingredient and more recently become convinced by the curious power of bee venom. To see the two together in Bénir Beauty’s BV-9 Platinum ($143) had this ingredient geek almost palpitating with excitement.

My expectations have been more than met.....

Chemicals to avoid in skin care.

We always recommend avoiding products that contain petrochemicals. Here's a list of things to look for...

SKIN FIX. Trending...Bee Venom Skin Care.

Day, Night & Eye...One anti-aging cream does it all.

It seems most skin care companies fragment their skin moisturizers into various parts, products for day use, products for night use, and even separate products for the eye area. The question is, does our skin really require multiple products to achieve optimal results? We don't think so. Here's some reasons why we don't support this viewpoint...

Petrochemicals and why you should avoid them.

Petrochemicals can be found in a wide range of products, from lipsticks & cosmetics to the skin care products we use daily on our face and bodies. At benir we avoid these ingredients as much as possible.  Not only do they offer no value to the benefits provided by popular brands, they may actually have a negative downside. 

Petrochemicals are derived from oil (petroleum) and have been shown to disrupt our bodies endocrine system (the system of glands responsible for hormone production), and can be carcinogenic (linked to cancers). They are primarily used as a cheap filler in cosmetics, although they offer no real benefit to the consumer.

Take a look at the chart below (courtesy thegreenpages.ca) and then check your products for the listed ingredients.  We can't make the decision for you, but we would highly recommend avoiding products if they contain theses ingredients in the top half of the ingredient list, or multiple petrochemicals are being used in the formulation.

And of course at benir, our formulations are full of active and beneficial ingredients not petrochemical fillers.
