What is Neem? ...
Since some of our products have neem, this question is asked of me quite often.
Scientific name - Azadirachta Indica, neem is a native to Indian sub-continent. Since I was brought up in India, I have seen and used it several times in home remedies.
It is a potent plant whose seeds, leaves and bark, all are used for several health benefits ( and especially in Ayurveda). Lets take a look at some of the essential benefits for hair and skin.
Treats Acne and skin infections: Neem is highly recognized for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It not only kills bacteria that causes acne, but also reduces the inflammation associated with it. It is an effective ingredient for preventing skin infections.
One of the main reasons we have incorporated Neem oil in our Shodhan face mask (for Oily / Acne prone skin) along with Montmorillonite clay and Eucalyptus EO to treat acne effectively.
Another one of our products, Facial Kit for Acne Prevention also has Neem oil as one of the main ingredients and is a total regimen consisting of 5 steps to nourish your skin and get rid of acne and blemishes.
Evens out Skin-tone : Neem is rich in anti-oxidants. It detoxifies and exfoliates too. All these properties, help new cell regeneration. Thus eliminating grease, minimizing scars and blemishes, reducing melanin production and achieving an even skin tone.
And thats what makes me so much fond of our Aloe and Neem Face Cleansing Milk, Chandramukhi, which not only removes make-up and cleanses dirt and debris from the skin but also refreshes and provides a healthy skin tone!
Soothes Dry skin and reduces wrinkles : An excellent source of essential fatty acids and vitamin E, Neem can easily penetrate the outer layers of skin. It improves skin's elasticity and prevents moisture loss. Therefore also reducing wrinkles and delaying aging.
With daily use of our Aloe and Neem Face Cleansing Milk, Chandramukhi, thats what you will achieve! .. Psst.. it also smells divine !
Eliminates Dandruff, dryness and itchiness : The antifungal, anti-inflammatory properties along with its rich fatty acid and vitamin E content, eliminate dryness, itchiness and dandruff from the scalp.
Our Rosemary Hair Growth Stimulator has neem extract along with Castor oil and Olive oil, to provide needed moisture to the hair and achieve healthy hair and scalp, while preventing excessive hair loss.
Strengthens hair & hair follicles and prevents hair loss : Since Neem has regenerative properties, it improves the condition of scalp, stimulates hair follicle growth, regulates the secretion of sebum and normalizes oily or dry scalp conditions. It is loaded with antioxidants that prevent hair loss.
We have two hair oils to help improve scalp and hair conditions.
While Rosemary hair oil is a hair growth stimulator that is to be applied liberally all over the scalp and hair to prevent excessive hair loss and promote new hair growth,
Nimba, Hair Growth Concentrate is a concentrate ( of course, as the name says :) ) that is to be applied only to the scalp (not hair) over just the affected area/s. It fights back alopecia and excessive hair fall and is very effective in new hair growth.
