The latest beauty + anti aging skin care buzz from benir.

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...

Announcing New Retail Packaging.

We are extremely pleased to release our new retail packaging for our BV-9 AntiAging Bee Venom Cream. Gorgeous on the shelf, and ready for retailers.

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.

Glowing, vibrant looking skin? Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerhouse antioxidant.

We have all heard of the importance of antioxidants and their role in the prevention of free radical damage in our bodies. Antioxidants are extremely important to our cellular processes and without antioxidants our cells lose their ability to function properly and efficiently. In skincare, this means an older, duller looking skin complexion. By utilizing a potent level of antioxidants in our skincare, we can assist the skin in it's ability to repair and rejuvenate for a healthy glow.

One of the greatest antioxidants available is called ALPHA LIPOIC ACID, an ultra potent antioxidant providing high levels of protection against free radical damage. Because alpha lipoic acid is both oil and water soluble, it functions in all processes and areas of the body, unlike other antioxidants such as Vit C (water soluble) or Vit E (oil soluble).

Another key of alpha lipoic acid, is it's ability to regenerate other antioxidants. As antioxidants attack free radicals they become "used up". There is evidence that alpha lipoic acid regenerates these used up antioxidants returning them to an active form.

Key benefits:

  • One of the most potent antioxidants available.
  • Prevents free radical damage associated with cellular damage and premature aging.
  • Supports activity of other antioxidants such as Vitamin C + E.
  • Decreases appearance of photo-aging and UV damage.
  • Reduces roughness associated with skin damage improving skin texture.

BV-9 AntiAging Bee Venom Cream contains high levels of alpha lipoic acid, another way we help you get the skin you've always wanted!
