SPONSORED: Heaven Skincare Nettle Venom Range
Royal facialist and founder of Heaven Skincare Deborah Mitchell explains the thinking behind her latest innovation – the first vegan anti-ageing products that use nettle venom...
Heaven Skincare Founder Deborah Mitchell spent the last five years investigating how to produce a vegan-friendly version of her world-famous ABEETOXIN bee venom creams ... one that would still have the same anti-ageing properties, but using only ingredients gifted by nature.
Working tirelessly to come up with the most impressive vegan skincare products on the market, she developed her patented NETTATOXIN using the carefully extracted sting of the common British nettle.
The ground-breaking range – which includes an anti-ageing cream, eye cream, serum, and supplements – proved such a hit when it first launched during last summer's lockdown that the first batch sold out within weeks.
“It's been quite a journey creating my NETTATOXIN because not only was it about coming up with the idea and working out how to make that a reality, but I also had to develop a way of capturing the active venom in a moisturiser without it hurting when applied to the face,” explains Deborah. “I've not used an extract because it wasn't powerful enough; instead this is a fresh ingredient that I collect from hedgerows near my home.
“It works because the venom of the nettle causes a reaction similar to that of bees when they sting – the skin goes into rapid repair on the first contact. Added to this, the nettle's leaves and roots provide a whole host of nutrients, all of which are amazing for the complexion.”
NETTLE VENOM ANTI-AGEING CREAM
Traditionally, vegan ingredients haven't made very effective anti-ageing creams, but with the patented NETTATOXIN the power comes from the skin's rebuilding system to tighten and renew. Heaven's best-selling Nettle Venom Anti-Ageing Cream is 100% vegan yet still offers potent anti-ageing properties and with regular use, the skin continues this healing action, smoothing lines as it does so.
NETTLE VENOM EYES
When you apply the new Nettle Venom around the delicate eye area the body's natural defence starts to heal; of course there's no damage but the skin is tricked into thinking there has been. By using it daily, it will tackle those tell-tale dark circles and fine lines.
NETTLE VENOM SERUM
Designed to be used morning and evening as part of your regular skincare routine. Because a little goes a long way, simply apply one or two drops to the face, one drop to the neck, and two to the décolletage. Alternatively, you can add a small amount to the Nettle Venom Anti-Ageing Cream for super-charges results.
INNER NETTLE SHOOTS
These 100% vegan supplements provide a wide range of nutrients, including vitamins A, C, and K, as well as several B vitamins as well as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium. Together they act as antioxidants inside your body, helping defend against damage from free radicals and ensuring your skin is balanced.
