What is Neem?

Neem Tree - The goodness of NatureNeem is a tree with an incredible variety of beneficial properties. Every part of the tree contains some level of active compounds, which have been found to be useful in organic and natural cosmetics, medicine and agriculture. The Neem tree originates from India and is part of the culture’s traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Neem Oil is derived from the seeds of the Neem fruit. Neem Oil and Neem leaves are the most common forms in which Neem is used since they are renewable. Harvesting the Neem Oil and leaves does not harm the fast-growing tree. Steeped in the traditions of time, Neem is becoming indispensable to those looking for an effective natural remedy in the West.

JustNeem uses African Neem harvested from their Neem Tree Orchard in Mauritania, Africa- and there is a reason for that. African Neem is known for its high concentrations of active ingredients that exert Neem’s healing and protective properties.

What is Neem and what does it do? The benefits of Neem oil for skin care are quite numerous. Each part of the tree contains useful compounds. The leaves, seed, bark, blossom and fruit all contain elements that help protect it from potential threats in the environment. These properties protect it from bacteria, bug, and other microbes that would be interested in eating the tree and its fruit for food. More about that in the Science of Neem section.

The exceptional properties of Neem and Neem oil can be summarized as antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, and they facilitate wound healing. Neem trees produce a cocktail of molecules in their leaves and seeds that have potent properties. Scientific studies have shown Neem to have the following healing properties:

  • Antibacterial – destroying the growth of bacteria
  • Antiviral – inhibits the growth of viruses
  • Anti-fungal – inhibits the growth of fungi
  • Analgesic – providing pain relief
  • Anti-inflammatory – reduce certain signs of inflammation, swelling or tenderness
  • Anti-histamine – reduce topical itches and irritations
  • Antimicrobial -destroying the growth of microorganisms

These protective properties found in Neem oil and Neem leaves are an amazing addition to natural skin care products! Take the antibacterial function of Neem, for example. Fuse that into a lotion, and you’ve got a moisturizer that knows karate. It has the potential to protect your skin from the elements. Neem’s active compounds work to help disinfect any area of broken skin, and thus allow the natural healing process to close up the wound.

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.

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 has stood the test of time. And now, researchers have begun systematically laying out the process of how it all works. Researchers have isolated around 150 of Neem’s compounds, or Neem’s powerful blend. Imagine 150 different compounds working together to protect the Neem tree from bacteria, fungus, bugs, and other threats found in nature! One of Neem’s incredible advantages is this complexity of its compounds.

The Neem tree has more than 100 healing properties that are excellent for skin care, specifically for problem skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, or acne. Neem is super potent and should not be used in its raw form. JustNeem addresses this by infusing it into a vast line of skin care products, which gives Neem a vehicle to nourish your skin.

Neem oil is the part of the Neem tree that is most discussed in online articles and in research reports. Cold-pressed Neem oil is a dark brown oil, somewhat viscous, that hardens at or below room temperature. It has a strong herbal, if not garlicky smell that makes it hard to use for skincare without the help of other complimentary oils that mask its natural smell.

Neem Cure Oil is always ready to use at a moment’s notice. And if you’ve tried Neem oil before, you’ll know the smell. Yes, raw Neem oil has quite a pungent smell that many find aversive.

However, we’ve fixed that. Neem Cure is the Neem oil that doesn’t smell like Neem oil.

Our Neem Cure has a few other perks, too:

  • Neem Cure smells great!
  • It contains Jojoba Oil, the best carrier oil
  • And, it stays liquid at room temperature

Neem Cure Oil smells great! We created a unique formulation for our blend of essential oils which complements the fragrance of raw Neem oil. These oils not only change the fragrance but, because of their own antiseptic properties, offer even stronger benefits. Many customers who use our Neem Cure Oil for the first time are pleasantly surprised by its refreshing, therapeutic aroma!

Neem Cure oil contains Jojoba Oil, which is derived from the seeds of the Jojoba plant. We chose Jojoba as our carrier oil for the Neem oil because of its unique composition. Jojoba is most similar to the oils your skin naturally produces, thus making it the easiest oil for all skin types to absorb. This dramatically improves Neem oil’s ability to be absorbed by the skin thus, infusing the healing properties into your skin where they belong.

Neem Cure remains liquid at room temperature because it’s blended Neem oil with the right amount of Jojoba oil and is, thus, ready whenever needed. Otherwise, raw Neem oil needs to be warmed, as it typically solidifies at room temperature.

So, with the help of Jojoba oil, Neem Cure stays liquid at room temperature. And due to the unique blend of essential oils, Neem Cure smells good, which drastically improves the wearability.

No wonder we think it’s the best skin tonic out there!
