Nourishing, softening, purifying!
Neem (or Margoussier) oil is used in the Ayurvedic tradition to purify skin with imperfections but also to keep insects and parasites away. Rich in omega 9, this oil makes the skin more supple and softer. The skin is therefore nourished and rid of its impurities. Considered a powerful oil, the antibacterial power of Neem oil has been demonstrated in a study on bacterial strains, but also in antifungal studies which have demonstrated its action against fungi. Neem oil therefore helps to treat skin infections in addition to its many benefits for the skin and hair. Its green to brown color and spicy smell are typical of Neem oil. We advise you to dilute this oil in another in order to benefit your skin or your hair. This oil is particularly recommended for oily and acne-prone skin. It is also an excellent oil for the scalp, dandruff or lice.
The botanical minute
Able to live up to 200 years and reach 20 meters, the Neem or Margousier is a tree growing in hot regions. Its fragrant flowers transform into small, edible yellow fruits, from which Neem oil is extracted. The Neem leaves have a very bitter taste. These are consumed in the Ayurvedic tradition in order to "purify the blood". The seeds of cold pressed Margoussier are the origin of Neem oil.
