Neem’s gentleness and effectiveness make it perfect for daily skin care. We at JustNeem utilize these properties in our top-selling Neem products to protect skin and, if needed, to support healing of skin infections.
We have found Neem to be very effective for acne, psoriasis and eczema treatments. The antibacterial qualities in Neem kill bacteria on the skin naturally. Our Neem soaps and lotions have shown to do just that, and work wonders as gentle all-body cleansers and moisturizers. Green Tea and Coconut Soap in specific help reduce the signs of acne.
Neem can also be applied in support of topical fungal or viral conditions such as nail fungus, athlete’s foot, warts or cold sores. The plant-derived anti-histamines in Neem are effective in treating itching skin, for example from bee stings, mosquito and spider bites, poison ivy, and others. Neem Cure, our plant-based healing oil, can be used for all the above mentioned skin conditions. Read more about the ways Neem is used in skin care.
Neem oil is also an excellent moisturizer, high in Vitamin E, rich in emollients and fatty acids, soothing dry skin, cracked cuticles or otherwise stressed and damaged skin. Unlike petroleum based moisturizers, Neem oil actually restores the skin’s natural elasticity. Neem is safe for use on children and some pets.
