BeeBio. Remember the name.
And the slogan: age with elegance.
Why? Because there’s a lot of buzzing going around about this luxury skincare brand based on highly active New Zealand manuka honey.
In fact, it’s just won a highly commended award from Duty Free News International (DFNI) for best new skincare launch 2015. Indeed, out of all the skincare launched into duty free in 2015 around the world, BeeBio came in second only to well known French skincare brand Sisley. They were also the top manuka/bee venom brand and the top New Zealand skincare brand.
BeeBio — meaning ‘bee life’ in Latin — is based on active manuka honey, royal jelly, bee venom and natural botanicals. The bees feed on the flowers of our native manuka bush and the honey that’s produced has gained worldwide acclaim for its high levels of scientifically proven bioactivity (effect on living tissue). Medical grade manuka honey is a natural preservative, antibiotic, antioxidant and humectant and is in demand for its efficacy in treating many skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea and acne. Medically it is used in hospitals globally for advanced wound care, burns, amputations and ulcers.
Just because a cream contains active ingredients like manuka honey or bee venom doesn’t mean it contains enough of it in the correct formulation. For manuka honey to be effective on the bioactivity scale it needs to be a level upwards of 10. BeeBio uses a minimum of 16+.
Look out for the Bio-Active Seal. It represents the independently certified, biological activity that is only found in True Active manuka honey and measures the Non Peroxide Activity (NPA) which is only found in True Active manuka honey with a Bio-Active factor of 10+ or more and is proven to contain very special healing properties.
