Neem oil has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries to treat skin problems such as acne or eczema. The disinfecting properties of the active ingredient oil can help regulate blemished skin: Neem oil has a clarifying and intensively nourishing effect at the same time. Neem oil has also proven its worth for the care of irritated, flaky scalps. Shampoos or lotions with neem oil can soothe and strengthen the scalp. In addition, neem oil is ideal for the care of cracked or inflamed cuticles. Neem oil is also valued in oral care (e.g. in toothpaste) for its disinfecting effect. Neem oil not only protects plants from harmful insects, but can also be used on humans as a natural mosquito repellent.
