Dry, Cracked Skin Loses Ability to Protect:

Dry and cracked skin is a sign of skin cells shrinking from lack of water. With the reduced size of skin cells, spaces between the individual cells grow. In severe cases, dry skin ruptures and starts bleeding. With this condition, skin loses one of its most important function, its ability to protect from fungi, bacteria, and viruses. The resulting redness and inflammation is the body’s response to microbial infections of the skin.

Neem Oil in Lotion Protects Skin:

Neem oil is loaded with antioxidant Vitamin E, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids, and palmitic acid. According to research cited by the University of Maryland Medical Center, these base oils play an important role in skin repair. They are very effective moisturizers that lock in moisture where it belongs- inside skin cells. Neem lotion absorbs well and reaches deeply into and in between skin cells to lubricate and maintain healthy skin elasticity.

Neem Oil in Lotion Soothes Eczema and Psoriasis:

Besides the deeply hydrating function of Neem lotion, the most important component in Neem oil for psoriasis and eczema prone skin is nimbidin, a natural anti-inflammatory property with a similar function as a standard cortisone drug. Neem oil reduces swelling, redness, and itching. As skin tends to crack much easier when struggling with psoriasis and eczema, it is very important to add protection for microbes and germs.   Neem oil can help with just that! It is best known for its ability to fight fungal and bacterial infections and has shown very good results in keeping skin smooth and healthy.

How to use Neem Lotion:

  1. We suggest to use Neem lotion several times a day, at least morning and night after showering, to lock in moisture and supplement the natural layer of protection on your  skin. You may also add a few drops of Neem Cure Neem oil to the lotion before applying. Combining Neem lotion and Neem Cure oil doubles the layer of protection from moisture loss and settling of microbes on the skin’s surface.
  2. Use Neem lotion throughout the day as hand lotion or to sooth your legs after shaving.
  3. Using it after sun bathing has also shown great effect in calming irritated skin.
  4. Lastly, our Neem lotions have soft and natural fragrances that are not overpowering. We use essential oils and nontoxic fragrance oils only and all ingredients are cosmetic grade.

Neem Oil, a Natural Remedy for Insect Stings and Bites

Adios Outdoor Spray with Neem Oil

Outdoors and Mosquitos

Do you love the outdoors just as much as I do? But, don’t you also hate being eaten up alive by mosquitos? What to do about the many stings and bites you get the minute you walk out the door? Here in the South where I live, no one escapes this love-hate relationship, especially during our beautiful spring and early summer season. Bug bites can turn a fun day outside into a very miserable experience.

And so, every year, we go out in search of something new that will help get rid of these pesky insects. We hope we finally find that one repellent we’ve been looking for that will not jeopardize our health as we spread it all over arms, face, and legs. And yet, for the love of being outside, we all have compromised – at least I have. When my garden calls me out to pull weeds, loosen the ground, plant the tiny vegetable plants I just purchased at the garden store. Or when the early evening calls me out for a walk around the neighborhood or a quick bike ride.

Wandering the aisles of our stores, we still see shelves full of sprays, sticks, and lotions made with the two frequently used and most widespread pesticides: DEET and/or permethrin.  DEET is known as the “gold standard” for insect repellents. It’s true, it does its job, but it is also highly toxic and not suitable for children or pregnant women. Permethrin is a known neurotoxin that also works as a repellent but in addition produces symptoms similar to those of DEET and DDT. Some might say that the benefits of these bug repellants outweigh the risks. But we say, “Why risk it? Natural is Better.”

Neem Oil is Better

Neem oil is pressed from the seeds of the Neem tree that grows in arid, harsh climates. The tree’s constant battle for survival has strengthened its immune system to the degree that it is able to survive a locust invasion.

A scientist from Germany noticed that remarkable aspect of the Neem tree while in East Africa during a locust plague. Leaves of all other plants and trees were shredded to pieces, but the Neem tree stood majestic like always with its crown full of healthy leaves.  This discovery compelled Prof. Dr. Schmutterer of the Justus Liebig University of Giessen, Germany, to start a Neem research institute where he confirmed the many uses of Neem as a repellent and natural healing agent.

Adios Outdoor Spray with Neem Oil

JustNeem extracts these remarkable compounds and puts them into products to use as soaps, lotions, and sprays. In our Adios Outdoor Spray, Neem oil, Neem leaf extract, and essential oils work in combination to help fight off insects and pests. And since this spray is made with natural ingredients only, it is perfect to use as often as needed and without worrying about washing it off at the end of the day. It smells wonderfully and works very well for children.

Cindy Bowen, one of our customers, says, “I was skeptical when I purchased my first bottle at a local store, but went on to buy five more to spread around to my friends. It does a wonder to keep the ticks, mosquitoes, and ants away out here in the wilds of Chatham County, NC. (Soothes any other little nicks and scratches one might have too.)”

One very unique and very helpful function of Adios Outdoor Spray is that it can be used on existing insect bites to reduce itching and swelling. Since Neem oil contains a natural anti-histamines that serves a two-in-one deal: it repels, and it soothes and calms the skin.

* The EPA has approved cold-pressed Neem oil as a mosquito repellent in 2010. However, Adios has not yet been registered with the EPA.

3 Reasons Why Our Neem Lip Balm Is The Best http://www.justneem.com/blog/3-reasons-justneem-lip-gleem-best/ http://www.justneem.com/blog/3-reasons-justneem-lip-gleem-best/#comments Tue, 10 Mar 2015 01:25:23 +0000 http://www.justneem.com/?p=21404 We believe that our Lip Gleem is so high quality, because of its unique combination of natural protective (Neem), moisturizing (Mango Butter) and repairing (Vitamin E) ingredients.

JustNeem’s Lip Gleem with Neem is simply the best for chapped lips and cold sores!

But why?  No, really, why are we claiming it to be the best?

We believe that our Lip Gleem is so high quality, because of its unique combination of natural ingredients. Here are three effects this combination has in our Neem lip balm:

1. Protective- We use a sweet-flavored Neem extract, not the bitter tasting, bad smelling Neem. Saharan desert Neem, which we use in all products, has much higher natural protective compounds than other Neem, because it is challenged to survive on a very strong immune system that protects the tree on a day-to-day basis in the harsh desert climate. We extract these protective measures and put them into our lip balm. That’s one reason why our lip balm is so special and works so well.

2. Moisturizing- We use Mango butter in our lip balm, an exotic oil with a buttery feel. Mango butter is a super moisturizer that comes from the Mango tree and contains Vitamins A and E, which makes it a natural antioxidant. Lips are prone to crack in dry or cold air, because the skin is very thin. All the more reason to use a butter that is absorbed well and long-lasting! And speaking of Mango trees . . . here is something you might not know:  JustNeem plants Mango trees in our orchard in the Sub-Saharan desert right next to our Neem trees. And this year, for the first time, we will reap the fruit of our labor! We will have a MANGO HARVEST this summer! 

3. Repairing- We use natural Vitamin E (Tocopherol) in our lip balm. Vitamin E combats oxidation from free radicals, molecules that damage the collagen in our skin. The result of that damage is skin dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles. Don’t we all want to avoid these fine lines around our lips as we’re getting older? Wouldn’t we do anything to make our lips look beautiful as long as we can? Well, JustNeem lip balm might just do the trick for you!

Fun Facts about Lip Balms:

Fleet companyDid you know that the first lip balm was invented by Charles Browne Fleet (1843 – 1916) in Richmond, Virginia? Besides the first “chap stick” ever, he also invented the . . . enema! What a combination!

Before the invention of the chap stick, ear wax was used to protect lips! Smart and natural, yeah, but . . . yuck!

Nowadays, some people like it cheesy . . .

Dear Dr. Peter,

Do you have any experience with cold sores and Neem oil? Can I put it directly on my lip? What if I lick it? Will it help with the pain and infection?

Dr. Peter answers:

Dear Angie,

As you probably know, a cold sore is caused by a virus. Neem is well known to have antiviral properties. It is also an all natural product from the Neem Tree. For cold sores, we recommend using JustNeem’s Lip Gleem or our Neem Cure Neem Oil.

The Neem Cure Neem Oil is an all-around product that can be used for any skin blemishes, including cold sores. It has the highest content of Neem  and comes with a convenient dropper. One drop is all it takes for a cold sore on your lip. Apply Neem Cure Neem Oil 3 to 4 times a day and you will see a decrease in swelling, redness, and discomfort in not very long. This blend of Neem, Jojoba and Essential oils will absorb quickly into your skin and is harmless if a small amount is ingested.

Coconut Oil in Skin Care

Dermatologist Jeannette Graf  says in the Allure magazine from April 2013:

Coconut oil“Coconut oil is made up of anti-inflammatory dietary fatty acids, which are important for skin health. When applied topically, it has wonderful moisturizing properties for the skin, increasing elasticity and emolliency. In addition, coconut oil enhances wound healing and has antioxidant properties. Studies have also shown that the lauric acid in the oil has antimicrobial activity against P. Acnes [bacteria], so it’s a potential treatment for acne and adult atopic dermatitis.”

4 interesting facts about Coconut Oil we thought you’d find interesting:

  • Coconuts can be harvested after 2 to 20 months of growth. Mature coconuts contain the most oil.
  • Sometimes coconuts are dried before the oil is extracted. These dried coconuts are called copra. Copras are then pressed producing the coconut oil we know.
  • Coconut oil contains 91% saturated fatty acids. This is the 2nd highest of all commonly known oils, according to USDA Nutrient Database.
  • Coconut Oil stays in your skin longer, keeping it hydrated and soft for far longer than other oils.

Four reasons why Neem oil is such a powerful anti-aging agent

Aging of skin is influenced by many factors. Some of them are genetic, over which we do not have much control. But then there are others we certainly can do something about.  Here is how Neem oil helps with anti-aging:

1. Neem oil is anti-aging, because it is rich in Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a powerful natural anti-oxidant, a class of reagents that neutralizes free radicals and thereby prevents tissue damage and wrinkle formation. Free radicals are one of the main contributors to skin damage and aging. Free radicals oxidize skin cells and cause cell damage, which leads to cracks, skin dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, and premature aging of skin. Environmental sources of free radials include UV radiation, reactive oxygen species, and air pollution. Internal sources include excessive alcohol consumption, tobacco use, and blood sugar levels.

2. Neem oil is anti-aging, because it is loaded with omega-6, omega-9 fatty acids, and palmitic acid

Research studies cited by the University of Maryland, Medical Center show that these base oils play an important role in our bodies repair mechanisms of damaged skin cells. These oils quickly and effectively repair damaged skin and keep skin wrinkle free, keeping them from aging too quickly.

3. Neem oil is anti-aging, because it is anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory

Repeated skin infections cause cellular damage. Over time this stresses and weakens skin cells, which results in premature aging. This is very similar to repeat-damage caused by sunburns. The anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties of Neem oil provide a natural protection and act as a natural anti-aging agent.

4. Neem oil is anti-aging, because it is highly moisturizing

It thereby supports skin’s natural function to be elastic and protective. Similar to skin damage from microbes or excessive exposure to sun, repeated episodes of dry skin will lead to cracks and wrinkle formation.  Neem oil is a very effective moisturizer that locks-in skin’s moisture and maintains its elasticity. It thereby disrupts a very common mechanism, dry skin, that contributes to premature aging of skin.

Natural Acne Treatment

In this blog we’ll explore what causes acne. Then we’ll look at conventional treatments for acne, how they effect the skin and how they compare to using Neem oil, and introduce JustNeem’s Acne Treatment Kit, AcNeem.

First, let’s take a look at what causes acne…

What causes Acne?

The common form of acne develops as a result of blockages in skin follicles. This results from pores getting clogged with dead skin cells and sebum, an oily/waxy substance that is secreted by microscopic sebaceous glands in the skin.

The natural function of these glands is to lubricate and waterproof the skin and hair. But when they become clogged with sebum and dead skin cells, naturally occurring bacteria and fungi (like Propionibacterium acnes and Malassezia, formerly known as Pityrosporum) that are present on most people’s skin flora start feeding on fatty acids in clogged pores, where they can cause inflammation, redness, scarring or hyper-pigmentation – this is what we typically recognize as acne.

515_Acne_formation         Before and After

Conventional Acne Treatments & Their Effects on Skin

Conventional acne treatments work in at least 4 different ways, with higher-quality treatments providing multiple, simultaneous effects:

  1. Normalizing shedding into the pore to prevent blockage
  2. Killing bacteria and fungi
  3. Anti-inflammatory treatment
  4. Hormonal manipulation

The most common treatments for acne take the second approach. They use benzoyl peroxide and antibiotics to combat the bacteria that feed on the clogged pores.

Peroxides form highly reactive radicals that react with organic matter, including bacteria and fungi, thereby killing these microorganisms. These chemicals are also used for bleaching and, while they kill bacteria, they also destroy skin cells, which is why they are also used as a peeling agent. Benzoyl peroxide’s side effects include extreme dryness of the skin, redness, and peeling. People with sensitive skin may also suffer burning, itching, and possibly swelling of the skin.

More severe cases of acne are treated with topical or oral formulations of antibiotics such as tetracycline, erythromycin, clindamycin, and minocycline. However, antibiotics target only the bacterial aspect of acne, and due to a rapid increase of resistance, their effectiveness is becoming very limited. The list of side effects of antibiotic is long, but most troubling is their tendency to induce resistance.

Acne is caused by bacterial or fungal infection of the pores that leads to inflammation. And conventional treatments have harsh side effects and often lead to more problems.

So, is there a natural alternative that can help? We need something that’s naturally anti-bacterial and antifungal, and something that also helps reduce the inflammation caused by the irritated skin. It turns out Neem oil is one of the best natural treatments for acne. It has all the properties we need, without the negative side effects.

Natural Acne Treatment with Neem Oil

Studies show that the Neem tree has powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that are a natural treatment for acne. There are many reasons it is beneficial and nourishing to the skin.

Neem_(Azadirachta_indica)_in_Hyderabad_W_IMG_6976

First of all, Neem oil and Neem leaves contain a cocktail of very potent, plant-derived anti-bacterial and anti-fungal molecules. These natural, botanical antibiotics and anti-fungals are part of the Neem tree’s defense system, protecting it from bacterial and fungal diseases.

Neem is also rich in Vitamin E, known to protect and repair skin. Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that neutralizes the free radicals that damage collagen and result in skin dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles.

When incorporated into skin care products, Neem extracts can inhibit bacterial and fungal growth and also show anti-inflammatory properties. However, unlike benzoyl peroxide, Neem does not destroy skin cells and therefore does not result in dry skin. This is an important aspect, since dry skin is prone to breakage and becomes easily re-infected, thus perpetuating the cycle of infection, inflammation, and skin damage.

Neem oil and Neem pastes lubricate the skin and provide the nourishment it needs to become and stay elastic and strong. In addition, since Neem’s anti-bacterial and anti-fungal molecules operate by several different mechanisms to synergistically stop bacterial and fungal growth, they cannot induce resistance.

An additional aspect of Neem is that it has been shown to facilitate wound healing providing an additional benefit to stressed and broken skin, that needs to be restored quickly so it can function as a protective barrier.

JustNeem’s AcNeem Kit, a Natural Solution for Teen and Adult Acne

Based on these principles, JustNeem has developed the natural and effective AcNeem line consisting of a five-step natural acne regiment.

Neem Oil is a natural remedy for minor burns. It reduces pain, facilitates wound healing, and minimizes scar development.

By Dr. Peter Radtke: It’s turkey time! Roast the bird but not your hands!  My family and I are new additions to this amazing country. So, when we arrived at the shores of LAX we had a few things to learn. Some of them were quite easy, like answering the question “How are you?” We quickly learned that you shouldn’t use 20 minutes to tell someone how you actually are. Other things were more difficult to learn and took a bit more time; one of them was how to use our oven. We were surprised how big ovens were in the US, especially, since it seemed that most cooking was done by microwave. Due to its unfamiliar dimensions, my lovely wife, who really likes to cook and is very good at it, burned her forearms on a regular basis when taking things in and out of the oven. These burns were usually minor first or second-degree burns but quite painful. They left red marks and blisters and took several weeks to heal and left scars. Sometimes when a blister broke and the integrity of the skin was compromised, bacterial and fungal infections settled on the burn and complicated the healing process. Until . . . we learned about Neem Oil! Burn 2Burn 1 

5 Steps on how to use Neem Oil for Minor Burns

With Thanksgiving around the corner and families getting ready to fire up the ovens to show off their collective cooking skills, I hope that none of us will need this information, but just in case, here are a few tips on how to use Neem oil as a home remedy to treat minor burns. Minor burns are defined as 1st or 2nd degree burns of a skin area that is no larger than 2-3 inches in size. Neem Cure Oil and Neem Cure Oil XL

Purchase Neem Cure Oil with spray head (1oz) >>

Purchase Neem Cure Oil with dropper (0.3oz) >>

1)   Cool the burn. Hold burned skin under cold water for 10 – 20 minutes. Allow to air-dry or gently pat dry with clean gauze. Early cooling (within 30 minutes of the burn) reduces burn depth and pain. 2)   Should blisters develop, do not break open. An open wound can lead to infections. 3)   Apply a few of drops of Neem Cure to the burn and gently spread over the affected area. 5)   Reapply Neem Cure 2-4 times a day for the first two days. Then reduce to 2 times a day until skin has healed to minimize scar formation. 5)   For first-degree burns (redness only) apply Neem lotion morning and night.

JustNeem Customers Report Back:

Janet R.: “I burnt my finger on the stove and I figured that I would try the Neem Cure to see if it helped. It actually took the pain away! I could not believe it! The next day you could barely see where the burn was. Really great stuff!” Leslie H.: “I got a pot out of my 425 degree oven after baking for over an hour, then proceeded to take the lid off with my bare hand (dumb!!). I burnt my fingers so badly and was in a ton of pain. After running under cold water, I put several drops on Neem Cure on the burn. Within 15 minutes the pain subsided and I never got any painful blisters. Neem cure saved me! The next morning you could see where the burn was, but no pain & no blisters. Amazing!! Everyone needs to have Neem Cure in their cabinet!” Lars: “Got sunburned and used the Wind & Sea lotion day and night and my skin did not peel like usual after a burn. Really nice!”

How Neem Oil Facilitates Skin Recovery from Minor Burns:

  • Alleviates pain:  Neem oil stops painful burning sensation through its antihistamine activity.
  • Soothes skin: Neem oil controls itching of newly developing skin during the healing process. This, too, is a function of its antihistamine properties.
  • Protects skin: Neem oil protects newly formed, sensitive skin. Exceptional concentrations of Vitamin E protect skin from oxidative damage.
  • Facilitates wound healing: High concentrations of omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids in Neem oil promote new skin cell formation.
  • Minimizes scar formation: Neem oil is highly moisturizing which keeps skin elastic, promotes restoration of skin, and minimizes scar formation.
  • Prevents infections: Neem oil keeps burn-wounds free from skin infections as Neem inhibits bacterial and fungal growth.

Classification of Burns

A burn is a thermal, chemical, electrical, or radiation injury to skin tissue. The severity of burns is classified by the degree of injury. The classification is based on the extent of damage to skin tissue, the depth of the injury, and size of the affected surface area. Home remedies such as Neem oil to treat burn injuries should only be used on minor 1st and 2nd degree burns of less than 3 inches.

  • 1st degree burns are limited to the epidermis, the outer layer of skin. The affected skin will turn red, and develop an itching and burning sensation. Skin tissue can swell up and may be painful. A typical example is sunburn. First degree burns can take up to 3 weeks to heal.
  • 2nd degree burns go one layer deeper than first-degree burns. They affect the next layer of skin, the dermis. Second-degree burns produce clear blisters, red, swollen skin that is very painful. Healing can take 3-8 weeks.
  • 3rd degree burns reach beyond the dermis into the fat tissue, muscle and sometimes as deep as the bone. Third-degree burns should not be treated with home remedies. Medical attention is needed. The healing time for 3rd degree burns can take several months.

Thermal burns are caused by open flames or hot surfaces. Besides the obvious sources like candles, gas stoves and fireplaces, thermal injuries can also result from exposure to electric heating elements in stoves, toaster, dishwashers or hot liquids (scald burns). Cold temperature burns or frostbites are a subcategory of thermal burns where skin tissue is destroyed by freezing instead through scalding. Friction burns are a combination of mechanical abrasion and thermal injury caused by heat that is generated when skin rubs against another surface, for example a rope, floor, or carpet. Chemical burns are caused by skin contact with a variety of natural or chemical substances. These range from skin irritants like touching hot chili peppers to household chemicals such as bleach and ammonia, chlorinating products for swimming pools and/or liquid acid from car batteries. Electrical burns result from direct contact with an electrical source. By inserting fingers or objects into live power outlets, touching power lines, stepping or falling into electrified water, an electric current is entering the body, which becomes part of the electrical circuit. An electrically burned patient should not be touched or treated until the source of electricity has been removed. Call 911 for medical assistance. Radiation injury in its extreme form results from exposure to an radioactive source. However, a more common cause of a radiation burn is sunburn. Typically these are first-degree burns from exposure to natural sunlight or exposure to artificial UV light in a solarium and spa.
