Neem oil is a vegetable oil obtained by cold pressing the seeds. In India it is known by the name Arishta or “the tree capable of curing all diseases”; the Arabs call it Shajar-e-Mubarak which means “blessed tree”.
Neem oil is composed of several substances, among which triterpenes and fatty acids in particular oleic acid, and stearic acid, which make it similar to both olive oil and cocoa butter. This means that Neem oil is endowed with interesting eudermic properties: it integrates very well with the hydrolipidic film of the skin and exhibits moisturizing and emollient properties.
Furthermore, Neem oil is attributed to numerous other properties, including antiparasitic, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties; it contains active ingredients capable of fighting viruses, bacteria and fungi. Neem oil seems to represent one of the most effective natural remedies for insect bites and scalp parasites and also for animals and plants, it is an effective ecological and natural pesticide.
