Definition of Neem Oil

Definition: Neem Oil

Neem oil, derived from an evergreen tree in India has long been known for its healing and soothing properties, but only recently came to be used as an ingredient in Western beauty products.

Neem contains heaps of fatty acids – making it an excellent hair oil – and Ayurvedic texts also recommend it for treating acne and skin inflammation.

If you'd like to try a little neem for yourself, pick up Dr. Hauschka Skin Care Neem Hair Oil ($52) which offers intensive conditioning for dry and damaged hair. Avon Anew Alternative Intensive Age Treatment ($59.99) and Dr. Hauschka Skin Care Neem Nail Oil ($61) are also worth a look.

Stockists: Avon (1800 646 000), Dr. Hauschka Skin Care (02 8765 1100).
