|NEEM - AYURVEDIC THERAPY FOR ROSACEA & PSORIASIS
Neem oil (Azadiachta Indica): Neem extract oil derives from the fruit and seeds of the Evergreen Neem tree. Used in Ayurvedic medicine for over 4,500 years, Neem was written about in the first millenium BC and was referred to as "Sarva Roga Nivarini" which means 'curing all ills and ailments". Traditional uses of Neem include Acne treatment, Leprosy, Malaria and Tuberculosis.
Today we know that Neem contains concentrated trierpenoids, which have aspirin-like properties, reducing the redness common to Acne and Rosacea, and making it Antiseptic, Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Viral, Anti-Histamine and Anti-Fungal. Is has proven to be effective in treating not only Acne, but also Eczema and Psoriasis. Neem oil hydrates the skin and helps eliminate the appearance of burns and post-acne scarring. These compounds in Neem also inhibit the over-production of Melanin, making it very valuable in the treatment of hyperpgimentation (dark spots).
Neem Extract also contains Carotenoids containing high levels of antioxidants which which fight free radicals and environmental damage, ..a major factor in preventing the effects of premature aging. Neems high percentage of Essential Fatty Acids and Vitamin E are readily absorbed into the skin, improving elasticity, and minimizing Wrinkles and Fine Lines.
Modern science also shows us that Neem is a superior non-toxic insecticide and repellent, and it has recently been found that the sufferers of Rosacea have an overgrowth (probably due to genetic enzyme production) of a micro-organism known as Demodex mites, which are an integral part of the human biome in normal numbers, but cause irritation and breakouts when they get out balance, much like Candida. As such, this ingredient is a key factor in our SBR line for it's ability to help put Rosacea into remission (Rosacea is a progressive condition and not 'curable', but can certainly be kept under control). We also use Neem in our SunProtect SPF30+ for it's ability to help repel flying insects.
