The superpowers of Neem Oil

The superpowers of Neem Oil

Neem oil is found from the Neem Tree, an evergreen tree that stems from the Indian subcontinent. Neem trees can grow for up to 200 years and be seen to stand at 40-80 feet. Extracted from the seeds of the Neem tree, at first encounter, it doesn’t have the most attractive smell since it is reminiscent of garlic and sulfur and is yellow/brown in colour. It has a bitter taste and so the question is, why do we even bother using it in our soap?! One of our best-selling soaps is our Neem and Hemp Oil soap, so bear with us, there is a reason why we are so smitten with Neem oil.


Neem oil could in fact wear a super cape. It is high in antioxidants that help protect the skin from environmental damage, it is high in fatty acids and Vitamin E and hence can quickly penetrate the skin, providing relief to dry or damaged skin. Neem is known to smooth the skin and soften wrinkles-a definite crowd pleaser! We love it and we created our Neem and Hemp soap using this oil to help dry and eczema prone skin.


It is also a natural bug repellent. Some client even confessed using it in their garden as a natural pesticide! But it appears, we are late to the game of Neem oil and not trendsetters, since it has been used for medicinal and insecticidal purposes for the last 4000 years. (If you don’t trust us, trust history!) Give our Neem and Hemp bar a try and let us know what you think!


Passion. Vision. Creation.

The Zero Waste Movement

There is a serious epidemic in our world today and it is caused by the amount of plastic we create and consume, and hence, how much we throw away. Our shorelines are lined with garbage, there are islands of floating plastic lost at sea, and statistically speaking, we are creating ten times more trash a day than we did a century ago. Of course, there are more people on earth right now than a century ago so more trash is inevitable, but it is this fact alone that has spurred us as a brand to be as minimal as possible with our output.
