How Kanu Bee Venom works


Proteins in Kānu Bee Venom cause a micro-swelling of the skin which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The process is simple, immediate, and powerful. In addition, repeated applications are thought to lead to increased collagen production and firming of the skin over time.
