Neem Oil Beauty Benefits
Neem oil has been used for thousands of years for its rich healing powers. For more than 4,000 years, neem has served as the cornerstone of Ayurvedic medicine, and Ayurvedic practitioners estimate that a full 75 percent of Ayurvedic remedies contain neem in some capacity. Though commonly used today in India, it has remained a lesser known natural ingredient around the rest of the world, at least until now. Neem is making an exciting transition to become more widely available to customers seeking reliable organic skincare solutions that utilise powerful holistic ingredients.
Neem Oil’s Powerful Healing Abilities
The neem tree, Azadirachta indicia, is an evergreen tree native to India, and its fruits and seeds contain bitter neem oil that is rich in nutrients and antioxidants, including essential fatty acids, triglycerides, vitamin E and calcium. With properties ranging from antibacterial and anti-fungal to anti–inflammatory and antiviral, neem oil beauty benefits have incredible value for diverse skincare needs. Since its fatty acids and vitamin E helps the skin easily absorb neem oil, its powerful properties can rejuvenate the skin, attack free radicals, and promote soft and supple skin without leaving any greasy residue.
Furthermore, neem is proven to stimulate collagen production in the skin, which is vital to fighting signs of aging and restoring elasticity and smoothness to the skin. If that wasn’t enough, neem also serves as a natural remedy for eczema symptoms like red, dry, and itchy skin since it is so soothing. The same anti–inflammatory compounds that make neem valuable for eczema relief also help neem oil fight acne, as it can soothe irritation and prevent breakouts.
Neem’s Entry into the Organic Beauty Care Market
According to a ReportBuyer report from P&S Market Research, “With the growing awareness among people towards the harmful effects of chemical based cosmetics on skin, hair, and other body parts, the significance of neem based products have risen to considerable extent…. Neem oil beauty benefits are well known in Asia–Pacific and its awareness is percolating to other parts of the globe. With the passage of time, the western countries are increasingly turning toward herbal products for personal care.”
Consumers are learning to become savvier and more aware as they make personal care product purchases, and this newfound desire for natural and nontoxic ingredients is the perfect invitation for neem to grow as a popular and highly sought after ingredient. Neem oil's strong history in Ayurvedic medicine immediately lends neem a sense of credibility with consumers. It is the perfect time for beauty and personal care companies to capitalise on neem oil as the newest and most reliable natural ingredient.
