We think bees are incredibly important, so we want to make sure we look after them. We believe they are given the best environment to live in and thrive off. Absolutely no bees are harmed in the making of our products.
We extract New Zealand pure bee venom by placing a glass sheet into the beehive with a very, very weak electrical current running through it. When a single bee sits on the glass, the weak current encourages it to stick out its stinger and pump out a small amount of venom, not removing the stinger. Due to the pheromones that are released, this then encourages all the other bees into the beehive to come and do the same. After that, the bees happily go about their business unharmed.
