Neem Oil - the “Village Pharmacy”

Neem Oil - the “Village Pharmacy”

Learn about the many benefits of Neem Oil, applications for skin care, health and beauty and how Mama’s Farmacy combines Neem with CBD to create a special blend for our eye cream.

Mama’s Farmacy loves Neem Oil because of its many uses.  So many uses in fact that it’s also called the “Village Pharmacy”.   

“Considered by the people of India to be sacred, the legendary and venerated Neem tree has come to symbolize good health and protection.  In fact, the ancient Ayurvedic tradition is said to be comprised largely of formulations that involve the use of Neem in one form or another.”

Neem oil comes from the “Neem tree” with origins in India or Burma and has a lifespan of up to 200 years.  When we learned about Neem Oil’s benefits we decided to incorporate it into our skin care. Check out just a few of the superstar elements of Neem Oil to see why:

 

Oleic Acids:

  • Maintain the softness, suppleness, and radiance of skin and hair
  • Stimulate the growth of thicker, longer, and stronger hair
  • Reduce the appearance of aging, such as premature wrinkles and fine lines
  • Exhibit antioxidant properties 

Stearic Acid:

  • Have cleansing properties that purge dirt, sweat and excess sebum from hair and skin
  • Be an ideal emulsifying agent that binds water and oil
  • Condition and protect hair from damage without diminishing luster or making it feel heavy
  • Soften skin

Linoleic Acid (OMEGA 6):

  • Exhibit anti-inflammatory properties
  • Soothe acne and reduce chances of future outbreaks
  • Promote moisture retention in skin and hair

Vitamin E:

  • Exhibit antioxidant activity
  • Delay the appearance of aging
  • Repair and improve the appearance of damaged tissue such as scars, acne, and wrinkles
  • Protect skin and hair against environmental toxins such as those found in air pollution

Carotenoids:

  • Exhibit antioxidant properties
  • Prevent cellular damage
  • Protect skin and hair against environmental toxins
  • Repair skin damage and signs of aging caused by UV radiation, hormones, or acne
  • Reduce hyperpigmentation caused by UV radiation, hormones, or acne
  • Make skin appear exceptionally younger
  • Stimulate the regeneration of skin
  • Boost skin’s collagen and elastin production to increase thickness, elasticity, firmness, softness, and smoothness
  • Hydrate skin by reducing water loss

“Used topically, Neem Oil works as a natural substitute for anti-aging products and as a protective agent against skin damage caused by UV rays. It deeply penetrates skin to restore moisture, enhance elasticity, smooth wrinkles, stimulate collagen production, and heal cracks caused by dryness. It reduces skin redness and brings out a healthy glow. Its ability to unclog pores and follicles while soothing irritated skin without leaving a greasy residue makes Neem Carrier Oil an effective agent for acne-prone skin.”

You’ll find Neem Seed Oil in our Mama’s Farmacy Premium Hemp Eye Renewal Cream (that some people also like to use as face cream) formulated with our favorite ingredient, organic broad spectrum hemp extract (CBD)! We’re so excited about Neem that we’re sampling it in different products and working on other ways to incorporate it into our line!
