In Sanskrit, neem is ‘nimba’ which translates to ‘good health.’ Also known as Indian Lilac, the neem tree (azadirachta indica) is commonly found in Southeast Asia and can live for up to 200 years. Neem oil is cold-pressed from its seeds has incredible antiseptic, antifungal, and antihistamine properties.
Chock full of powerful components like essential fatty acids, triglycerides, vitamin E, and antioxidants, the benefits of using neem oil are seemingly endless. The fatty acids and vitamin E absorb quickly without leaving a greasy residue, penetrating deeply to heal dryness and cracks at the micro-level. The vitamin E works to rejuvenate skin cells by scavenging free radicals and restores the skin’s natural elasticity resulting in soft, radiant skin.
Neem oil is ideal for oily skin and has long been used as a natural remedy for acne. Its antimicrobial properties rid the skin’s surface of problem-causing bacteria to prevent future breakouts while the nimbidin and nimbin compounds reduce redness and irritation. The fatty acids follow up to help treat any scarring that might be left over. With regular use, neem oil reduces fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production to plump and hydrate skin.
