2013 was an amazing year! So much has changed for our little company: we have grown with new products, new awards, a new Corporate Office and many, many new, happy customers!

We are so proud and excited to see our company grow, our customers happy, and our Neem Tree Orchard on the edge of the Sahara Desert grow with us. Thank you to all the Bloggers and Magazines that have given us so much encouragement! Here is a look back at the milestones 2013 brought our way:

The National Scene

Dr. Oz neem & JustNeem

In February 2013, our Neem Clay Mask & Neem Tub Tea appeared on The Dr. Oz Show (video). The show then went on to re-run in June. With the double airing of this episode of The Dr. Oz Show, we received so much attention from viewers, customers, and skin care professionals from all over the country and beyond!

“Within minutes of the show airing, our web sales went off the charts,” says Marketing Manager Leslie Huffman. COO Magda Radtke adds, “We significantly increased the production for all our products, but in particular for the Neem Clay Face Mask and Neem Tub Tea that both appeared on the show.”

 

JustNeem Awards

 

We also won our second Award from Natural Solutions MagazineOur Neem Clay Mask won the 2013 Beauty with a Conscience Award for “Best Face Mask”!

“These companies know that beauty and good-for-you go hand in hand, and they showcase the most honest ingredients on the health and beauty market today in their featured products,” states Natural Solutions editors.

 

Whole Foods Markets

In January of this year we announced the distribution of our best-selling Neem Clay Mask to an additional 69 Whole Foods Markets in the Pacific Northwest, Mid-Atlantic, North Atlantic, and Southeast regions. We are so thrilled to continue and expand our wonderful relationship with Whole Foods! This could not have been done without the support our customers provided in 2013!

The Neem Clay Mask had been sold at Whole Foods Markets in the Southeast region only, but due to the demand for products made with Neem, the Neem Clay Mask is now displayed in 78 Whole Foods stores across the country! Look HERE to see if the Whole Foods Market near you carries the Neem Clay Mask.

“Whole Foods has a commitment to carry the finest all natural skin and body care products available. They believe what we do: in natural, sustainable, high-quality merchandise that is good for you,” says COO, Magda Radtke

“Having the support from a company like Whole Foods Market is reassuring that we are making highly desirable products that are not only requested by consumers but also loved for their medicinal effects for skin care issues. We have enjoyed our relationship with Whole Foods Market. From our beginnings they have been very supportive of what we do, our products and our mission in Africa.”

New Video

This year, we also launched a video featuring our bestselling Neem Clay Mask! In an effort to further engage consumers on the benefits and uses of Neem in skin care, we released a YouTube video detailing how to get a professional facial treatment at home using the product and our Neem Cure. Check it out here:

Stay tuned, we also have more videos coming your way throughout the year!

Read What the Bloggers Are Saying About Us

Cary Magazine -

“JustNeem is part of an increasing number of for-profit companies with a social mission, known as B Corporations, which means growth for JustNeem increases its ability to help its partners in Mauritania. According to the company’s website, certified B Corps use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.”

Simply Stine -

“My favorite product that JustNeem sent me to try was the Body Polish. I loved it! It exfoliated my skin nicely and left my body soft and moisturized. I liked this exfoliant because I didn’t feel greasy after using it.

(Cuticle Care Pen) -This is something I now keep on my desk in my office and I find that my cuticles are much softer and look so much better. This pen features Neem extract, Jojoba Oil, Mango Butter and Vitamin E. This is perfect for anyone who has brittle, dry, weak nails. Also great for anyone with a nail fungus. It’s so easy to use and isn’t messy at all!

Ivory & Olive -

“(Neem Clay Mask) This mask leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. It also makes me feel like I’m practicing what I’m preaching. This Olive mask is a thumbs up for Ivory. Plus, this company has a mission to plant seeds of hope, it’s a winner all around.”

Run On Organic -

“This Body Polish smells like taking a deep breath of ocean air. It is like having a little container of the beach with you in your shower. The oily mixture and grittiness of this polish make it such a nourishing experience for your skin. The grit isn’t too abrasive, but just enough to remove the dead skin cells from the surface.

I love that JustNeem uses organic oils in this body polish. Most of the other ingredients are clean–as they do not use sulfates, parabens and phthalates in their product line.

Beautiful Basics -

“(Neem Clay Mask) I like to use this mask once or twice a week for 15 minutes and it makes a humungous difference it the texture, brightness, cleanliness, and quality of my skin. It leaves my skin looking great and feeling even better. If I feel a pimple coming on I just pop a little of this on the area and it seems to stop it dead in its tracks. It also makes my skin look much more radiant! It’s one of those masks where I just can’t stop touching my skin after using it.”

Domestic Sweetheart-

“Do you suffer from Acne? If so, you should check out the AcNeem product line from JustNeem Body Care which is specially made for acne prone skin. AcNeem Acne Daily Cleansing bar is gentle and very effective. I saw results within one week of using. I highly recommend this product if you have sensitive skin and are dealing with breakouts.”

Ginger & Aloe -

“I was super excited to try out the JustNeem Holiday Spa Gift set. Bathing in (Bath Salt) & Neem Tea is therapeutic, immune-boosting and soothing. Any kind of irritations or blemishes heal faster and it is a truly exquisite feeling afterwards. I wish we could just substitute the chlorine in our pools with Neem leaves.

(Green Tea Body Polish) The smell is wonderfully green and the scrub is massaging and mild, leaving the skin polished.

Neem Clay Face Mask is wonderful to use before your bath. Afterwards skin feels clean and clear and pores seem smaller.”

Mizz Review Lady -

“Upon opening the clay masks we smelled the invigorating scent of eucalyptus and mint. They were easy to apply, although some of us applied more than others. After the masks were removed, it left us with healthier skin that both felt and looked better. I have to admit, it was quite refreshing and all of the guests really seemed to enjoy it. “

Living The Good Life -

“As you know by now I suffer from acne (not as bad as I did in high school) but it’s more than I want to suffer from at 26 years old. This (AcNeem) acne daily cleanser is full of natural acne fighting botanicals. I love this daily cleanser. It leaves my skin feeling clean and I’ve noticed after using for a week or so that my black heads have gone away and I’m getting less pimples on my face. I’m hoping over time that my red spots will start to fade. Very nice and I highly recommend using.”

“I sometimes have patches of eczema on my skin. The winter is worse than the summer the patches itch like crazy and doesn’t look all that great. I recently found an extract called Neem that is really good for dry skin.I was able to try two products from JustNeem the first was the (Neem Body) lotion. I liked how long lasting the lotion was and how it hydrated my skin. I also received the Wind and Sea Neem soap which I really liked. I loved the refreshing scent! It helped energize my morning. “

 

Do you have a testimonial? We’d love to hear it! Drop us a line at info@justneem.com OR leave a review on the product page of your favorite product!!

Here’s to making 2014 even more newsworthy . . . Cheers!

You probably know that we make our body care products in Cary, North Carolina using Neem from Mauritania, West Africa.

BUT, did you know that your purchase of JustNeem products benefits communities in West Africa? It’s true! Through our project, Planting Seeds of Hope!

The purpose of this project is to provide independence and economic security to those in this impoverished area of the Sahara Desert. Mauritanian communities generate income through the harvesting of Neem leaves, fruit, and oil while improving both the health of their land and community members. You can read more about Our Mission on our website.

But first, enjoy these photos of our most recent trip! Peter, JustNeem Chairman and CEO, travelled to Mauritania to visit the community and see how the Neem Tree Orchard was doing. He has shared some of his photos and comments with us below…

Nouakchott, Mauritania Africa

I took this photo as the plane landed in Nouakchott, the capital city of Mauritania, West Africa. From this photo you can see the concentrated area of the city. As the city moves outward into the desert, these areas become the slums of the city. This is where we stay and begin our work.

 

Birger's office

This is Birger, who is the Director of E Pod. E Pod is an economic development organization and our partner in the Neem Tree Orchard project we created. This is their office in the city of Nouakchott.

 

Soap making

Before we departed for the orchard, we met with local women who learned how to make soaps through one of JustNeem’s workshops in Nouakchott. Many of them now sell these soaps in the local markets.

 

Dried Neem Leaves

Here are some Neem tree branches that have been pruned, washed, and dried. Mauritanian women will strip the Neem leaves and then pulverize them into Neem leaf powder. This is a very important ingredient in the Neem soaps they sell!

 

Sahara Desert camels

It is a six hour drive through the desert from the city of Nouakchott to the Neem Tree Orchard in Kaedi. Along the way, we saw these camels walking along in the Sahara. Not something we see here in the States!

 

On the road to Kaedi

A truck goes off the road and holds up traffic on the only road from Nouakchott to Kaedi. Everyone gets out to help.

 

At the Neem Tree Orchard

Finally arriving at the Neem Tree Orchard, we met with Keneme, our orchard manager, and his team. From left to right is Keneme, Abou, Sammba, Ousman, and Peter.

 

JustNeem Shirts

The group takes a moment to exchange gifts. We brought the men who work at the orchard some shirts from JustNeem headquarters in North Carolina.

 

JustNeem hat

Keneme made this hat from two large gourds. He sewed them together and carved this beautiful decoration into the hat – all by hand!!

 

Neem Trees

Here is a photo of the Neem Tree Orchard. These Neem trees are two years old and growing nicely. They will not blossom or produce fruits until they are approximately five years old. They’ll be in great hands with Keneme and his team taking care of them!

 

Water Tower

This is the water tower that we built last year. At the bottom of the tower, notice the black pipes extending out – those are drip irrigation hoses and they keep the trees nourished in the hot desert sun!

 

Time for lunch

Working in the desert is tough and you can really build up an appetite! Prepared food is brought to the orchard – ready to eat! – and then shared by all…

 

Meal time

Gathering under the shade of the Neem trees: this is what meal time is like in the desert!

 

Mango Trees

Here are some of the Mango trees that also grow in our orchard. At the time of this photo, the Mango trees were infested with very large locusts that were eating the leaves…

 

Natural pesticide

Neem is a powerful, natural repellant! I formulated an all natural pesticide made from Neem seeds to keep the locusts off the Mango trees. The top left photo shows fresh Neem seeds and dried Neem seeds side by side. I crushed the dried seeds into a powder using a rock.  We soaked the powder overnight with water and a little soap.

 

Natural pesticide

In the morning we filtered the Neem liquid and sprayed the Mango trees. This worked really well! The locusts no longer feast on the trees and we expect ripe, delicious mangoes in the next few months!

For updates on the Neem Tree Orchard, our work in Mauritania, and more (like coupon codes and special announcements!) subscribe to NeeMail!

Thank You For Your Support!!

10 % of our profit is reinvested in our Planting Seeds Of Hope project in Africa. Through our customers we are able to provide independence and economic security to those in Mauritania, plant thousands of trees in the Sahara Desert, and share the wonders of African Neem with you.

Movember Shave

What is Movember?

Have you noticed all the men out there growing beards and mustaches? Have you heard about Movember? Movember is a movement that is bringing attention to men’s health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer, men’s mental health, and funding research and treatments.

Through this movement men are asked to grow out their facial hair and not shave during the whole month of November. The goal? By creating a fun and engaging annual Movember campaign, funds are being raised for men’s health programs and conversations about men’s health lead to greater awareness and understanding of the health risks men face.

Movember is Over!

Hello December 1st! Time for a shave! It’s time to take a razor to that carefully crafted facial hair.  Let JustNeem help: We have lots of shaving tools and accessories.

From Tuesday, December 3 until Saturday, December 7, 2013 JustNeem is offering 20% off of our Neem Shaving Soap and our Neem Aftershave ! Hold your own Movember shaving party or just stock up on your favorite products and scent!

Shaving Soap & Aftershave with Neem Oil

JustNeem shaving soaps and aftershave contain all natural Neem. Neem is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory and has been praised for its ability to heal and protect the skin from mild scrapes, cuts and abrasions from daily shaving.

Our Neem Shaving Soaps are high in glycerin which allows for a very smooth glide. The shaving soap also contains Neem which helps heal and soothe the micro cuts that occur during shaving and keep infections at bay. Other ingredients are Vitamin E and/or Shea Butter, Sunflower oil, Aloe Vera and  a blend of fragrance and essential oils.

The Neem Aftershave includes Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Neem infused Sunflower Oil, and Shea Butter. All these ingredients work together to help soothe irritated skin, serve as an anti-bacterial agent, and keep the skin moisturized.

Best Shaving Tool – The Brush

There is an art to the perfect shave. When you have the right tools, shaving can go from an irritating experience to a refined skill. But what tools does one need? Not all men use a shaving brush in their daily routine, but many are switching due to the close, comfortable shave it provides.

Our Boar Bristle Shaving Brush helps to prepare your whiskers, and your skin, for a good close shave. This everyday quality brush is made with natural boar bristles by the Germany company Mühle.

Our Badger Shaving Brush is a fine, high quality shaving brush, with soft bristles that create rich lather for a fine shave. It is a perfect brush for the more advanced shaver. Made by Mühle, a German world-known shaving supply company.

1. Neem Oil for Psoriasis, Eczema, Rosacea

Treat with: Neem Cure Oil & Neem Tub Tea. Neem can be very effective in helping soothe symptoms from Psoriasis, Eczema, to Rosacea. After cleansing effected areas with a gentle Neem Soap, use our Neem Cure Oil to ease the symptoms of dry skin, extreme itching, and inflammation. Neem Cure can be applied directly to the skin and face up to 4 times a day.

Natural Vitamin E and fatty acids in Neem Oil help soothe and heal itchy dry patches on the skin.

2. Neem Oil for Itchy Scalp

3. Neem Oil for Lice and Scabies

Wash hair and scalp with a gentle shampoo, adding 2 or 3 drops of Neem Cure to the shampoo. After hair has dried, apply an additional layer of Neem Cure directly into the scalp and leave on overnight. Repeat everyday as long as needed.

For SCABIES – Use Neem Cure XL with spray top to spray Neem oil blend directly onto clean skin and rub in. Repeat several times a day. For added effectiveness, wash with our Neem Soap and/or soak in a tub with Neem Tub Tea.

Results: Neem Oil has shown to get rid of lice & scabies without irritating the skin or scalp. Repeat the above remedies for a few days to be sure that all eggs are also treated and killed. Adding Neem Cure, Neem Soap and Neem Body Lotion to your regular daily hair and skin care will help fight re-infestation and supports healthy, soft skin.

JustNeem Staff

We’ve asked the staff at JustNeem to share their favorite products with us, which ones they use daily and can’t live without…

This week we asked Jesilyn Mousa, our Administrative Assistant extraordinaire, about her most loved products. Jesilyn is so organized that we would not get along without her. She does everything!  Accounting, ordering supplies, packaging up products; Jesilyn has a hand in it all. Jesilyn is super funny, kind and strong. Her passion and compassion comes directly from the love of her little boy. Yes, Jeslyn herself is a staff favorite!

Here are Jesilyn’s favorite JustNeem products:

Neem Oil Products

“My favorite Neem Soap is the Cranberry Rose. It is a seasonal soap and only available in February for Valentines Day, but I stock-up! I love this soap in particular because it’s feminine and fresh and every time I use it, I get tons of compliments.

In Spring and Summer I cannot live without Adios. My yard has a horrible bug problem. Adios keeps the mosquitoes from biting and I actually like the smell of the product. I also prefer to put the natural stuff over chemical spray on my toddler’s skin. Adios works great!

My itchy scalp is a never ending frustration to me. I love adding Neem Cure to my shampoo to help stop the itch. The Neem Cure relieves the itch which keeps me from scratching…  which in turn reduces the flaking. I also no longer scratch my scalp raw. I also gave it to a friend who has really bad psoriasis on her elbows and within a week she texted me a picture of a visibly reduced rash.

I love the Neem Clay Mask. I use it all the time. It leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed. It also seems to work on my deep down acne and brings it to the surface. My husband uses it too. He has cystic acne that is hard to clear up. After using the Neem Mask the cysts rise to the surface and clear up much faster.”

Tell us about your favorite JustNeem products!
