The Neem Tree’s History in Skin Care
The history of Neem tree can be traced back to the ancient Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro civilizations in India and Pakistan. These civilizations, along with ancient Egypt were considered the “Cradles of Civilization” (circa 2600 – 1900 BC). Nearly 5000 years ago the Neem tree was being used for its medicinal properties in households in these South Asian countries. The earliest writings of using Neem in daily life was first recorded in Sanskrit in the ancient Indian scriptures of traditional medicine called the Charak Samhita and Sushruta Samhita.
For centuries, Indians planted the Neem tree in the vicinity of their homes and used its leaves, branches and oil for daily Ayurveda medicinal practices. It’s small branches were chewed on to keep teeth and mouths clean of bacteria and gum disease. For women in particular, Neem proved an invaluable source of health, hygiene and beauty that was freely available. Having a bath steeped in Neem leaves kept their skin supple and healthy. Neem leaf powder or crushed leaves incorporated into their face packs provided emollient and anti-aging action. The antiseptic properties of Neem leaf extracts helped in controlling pimples and acne.
The Neem tree has a rich history and 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.
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.
JustNeem uses African Neem harvested from our Neem Tree Orchard in Mauritania, Africa- and there is a reason for that. The Company’s orchard of high-potency Neem trees is a resource and benefit that other producers of Neem-based skin care products do not have.
Early on, JustNeem commissioned scientific research to identify the various strains of the Neem tree. One strain was found to have special characteristics, including about 40% more potency than any others tested. That high-potency Neem tree was found among the Neem trees in West Africa. Dr. Radtke then identified a special location nearby and established a Neem tree orchard with only those high-potency Neem trees.
In planning and developing the orchard we worked collaboratively with local villagers and nonprofit organizations to assure our orchard and our work there would help protect the environment and improve the lives of local villagers through better nutrition, education, health care and economic development.
