Neem: The Age-Old Skin Remedy

Look at any natural Indian skincare brand and neem will be a major ingredient. A traditional remedy in Ayurvedic practices, neem has long been considered sacred and a symbol of good health. Although traditionally used as a topical paste from the plant’s fresh leaves, homegrown neem oil is pressed from the fruits and seeds of the evergreen neem tree that grows abundantly in the Indian subcontinent.

The oil, which is made up of vitamins, Omega fatty acids, triglycerides and antioxidants, provide the skin with so many benefits that the plant is named after all the good it does – ‘neem’ comes from the Sanskrit word ‘Nimba’ which means the ‘bestower of good health’.

Here’s why.

It Soothes

Neem contains a component called nimbidin which gives it its anti-inflammatory punch. This superstar chemical compound helps soothe itchy and inflamed skin, rashes and skin irritations like eczema and psoriasis. It’s helped by the plant’s antibacterial and antiseptic properties which come together to fight infection and inhibit swelling.

It Clears

The nimbidin and antibacterial properties in neem also make it a great anti-acne treatment that works just as effectively on the spot as it does long term. Neem gently clears existing acne and eliminates acne-causing bacteria without harming the skin. Simultaneously, it protects the skin by balancing oil production to ensure less future acne, tighter pores and fewer blackheads – all of which also make it an effective toner!

It Heals

Neem’s antiseptic properties give it almost magical healing abilities. Applying it to injured skin or minor cuts and abrasions accelerates the healing process and improves the immunity of the wound.

It Moisturizes

On top of soothing irritated skin, neem also deeply moisturizes it thanks to its triglycerides (which come from fatty acid) and Vitamin E. Neem is especially effective for dry skin due to its ability to penetrate deeply into the skin and lock in moisture.

It Treats Hyperpigmentation

When the skin overproduces melanin, pesky hyperpigmentation occurs. Neem controls the secretion of melanin to even out the skin and lightens up dark spots.

It Fights Aging

If that’s not enough, the antioxidants and carotenoids in neem stimulate collagen production and improve elasticity, helping maintain that baby face. At the same time, it neutralizes free radicals (pollution and environmental particles that cause aging) from causing harm to the skin.

How to Use Neem Oil

A single drop of neem oil carries immense potency, so use it in small doses. To dry out acne, you can dab the oil right onto spots as a quick, overnight treatment and, similarly, you can also apply it onto acne scars to promote healing.

Organic Riot’s Zap Anti Acne and Smog-Block both use Neem extract in it for all of the reasons above. If you want to feel the best benefits of neem we suggest you try the products by Organic Riot ASAP!
