Neem oil is one of the natural skin and hair care ingredients that we love and has made it’s way into our prodcuts. The nutrient-rich oil has been coveted for centuries in Ayurvedic rituals and traditional Indian medicine. Vitamin E, C, fatty acids and skin-shielding carotenoids are just a few components of neem oil that encourage a clear, youthful, glowing complexion.
Neem oil comes from the seed of the tropical neem tree, also known as Indian lilac. These trees are predominantly found in the Indian subcontinent.
Let’s jump right into the many benefits of neem oil.
Fight Aging: Neem oil is chock full of carotenoids and antioxidants that help protect your skin against the ravages of free radicals, which cause signs of aging such as wrinkles and age spots.
Smoothes Wrinkles: With its regenerative properties and immune-boosting compounds, neem oil enables the skin to fight pathogens that are present below the skin surface. This keeps the skin smooth and fights wrinkles.
Stimulates Collagen: Neem stimulates collagen production which slows down the aging process of the skin. Collagen keeps your skin looking young and supple.
Heal & Moisturize: For any type of skin, neem extract provides excellent moisturizing and healing benefits. It is rich in vitamin E and fatty acids that help improve skin elasticity while providing and retaining moisture. Due to its ability to reduce inflammation and heal abrasions, it can be very soothing and provide relief for eczema sufferers.
Assist with Acne: The anti-inflammatory and analgesic agents in neem oil help reduce the redness, swelling and pain associated with acne outbreaks. The fatty acids moisturize and nourish the skin, while the antibacterial properties fight the bacteria that cause acne.
Pore Appearance: Neem oil helps cell turnover and increases elasticity making your pores tighter and appear smaller. Regular application of neem oil removes blackheads and prevents their re-occurrence.
Reduce Hyper-pigmentation: Neem seed oil is an ultimate savior for skin pigmentation. It regulates the secretion of melanin, which controls the pigmentation deposits in your skin. Applying neem oil regularly will clear, beautify and rejuvenate the skin thereby reducing skin pigmentation drastically.
Hair and Scalp Health: Neem oil is incredibly powerful for your hair and scalp. The essential fatty acids penetrate the skin and heals symptoms of dryness on your scalp that cause dandruff and flaking.
