Called by different names, including the Indian Lilac, Neem is a tree in the magohany family Meliaceae that is native to India and most countries in Africa. It is a traditional medicine that has been used as an insecticide and insect repellant. It reportedly has antiulcer and fungicidal properties. It has also been used to treat health issues such as diabetes and skin diseases.
This protective oil contains antioxidants, helps get rid of toxins and fights off infections. For the skin, it balances oil production, stimulates collagen formation, heals wounds and skin tissue from within, tones the skin, treats blackheads, moisturizes the skin, soothes and minimizes skin inflammation and can reduce post-acne scars and hyperpigmentation. It can also help protect the skin from damaging UV rays.
For the hair, Neem can strengthen hair follicles, promote hair growth & prevent baldness, condition dry hair, help with dandruff and itching, treat head lice and scalp infections with its high fatty acid content and prevent premature graying.
