In one test with hydrocortisone, neem extract (sodium nimbinate) and several natural saponins neem was over four times more effective at reducing inflammation than hydrocortisone and more effective than the other agents tested.

Neem seed oil is very bitter with a garlic/sulphur smell and contains vitamin E and other essential amino acids. Neem oil’s highly concentrated anti-microbial active ingredients can be used directly on cuts, scrapes or serious skin conditions. The concentrated essential fatty acids help to restore moisture and elasticity to the skin while it disinfects and heals. Neem oil is a natural vegetable oil.

Neem’s antiseptic and healing properties make it an excellent first aid for minor cuts and abrasions. Neem has also been shown to be an excellent wound healer. Neem has the ability to increase vascular permeability by increasing the blood flow and by helping the body to rapidly create collagen fibers to close wounds. Healing will be significantly accelerated and scarring reduced by using neem to protect the injured skin.

Product Uses: Neem oil is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-parasitic, anti-inflammatory, and relieves pain. It is good for dermatological conditions (chronic and acute) psoriasis, eczema, acne, herpes (genital and oral) shingles, dry skin, dandruff, lice, scabies, athletes foot, jock itch, ringworm, candida, wounds, cuts, scrapes, bruises, and burns. A safe and effective insect repellent and insecticide.
