We are often asked by our customers about the benefits of a particular ingredient found in our handmade soaps and bath & body products. We thought we’d share with you one of our favorites… Neem Oil. Considered a “wonder plant” in India and parts of southeast Asia, the Neem Tree or “Indian Lilac” is a tree in the mahogany family that remains evergreen throughout the year. Its fruit and seeds have been harvested since ancient times. The oil, which is derived from its seeds, is heralded as a natural healer and includes ingredients like Vitamin E and Calcium in addition to Antioxidants, Limonoids, Triglycerides and Fatty Acids, making it a perfect ingredient to moisturize dry skin, help combat wrinkles and treat acne. You can enjoy the benefits of Neem Oil found in our Pine & Neem Handmade Soap Bar and in our Turmeric & Neem Body Scrub. To learn more about our many other handmade products, check out our Website or visit us at our shop, located in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We look forward to hearing from you!
