After making another batch of Wild Geranium Clarifying Facial Bar, I decided to do some more digging into an interesting ingredient in our formula. Neem oil comes from an evergreen tree which is part of the mahogany family, and is native to India, Africa and other hot, dry climates. Neem has been coined “the village pharmacy” in many parts of the world and is highly prized for its countless uses especially on the skin. Neem has gained popularity in Europe and the United States as more people look to nature to provide alternative (and many times, more effective) ways to heal skin problems.
- Neem has an astonishing amounts of the antioxidants carotenoid, and vitamin E which help the skin defend against wrinkles and the aging process.
- Neem is a powerful antibacterial and is non-comedogenic, which means it won’t clog pores. It’s known to help acne-prone skin by clearing break-outs, reducing redness and soothing inflammation.
- Neem is loaded with emollients and is an excellent antifungal. It can help with eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, athlete’s foot, nail fungus and other skin ailments not helped by traditional medications.
