Neem oil contains high level of antioxidants that protect the skin from environmental damage. Neem also helps fight free radical damage in the skin because it contains carotenoids, which provide high antioxidant compounds. Neem oil is rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs), triglycerides, vitamin E and calcium that penetrates deep within the skin to heal the miniscule cracks brought on by severe dryness. The fatty acids and vitamin E found in neem oil are easily absorbed into the skin without leaving the skin greasy. Once absorbed, these powerful properties work to rejuvenate the skin’s cells and restore elasticity. Vitamin E acts as a free radical scavenger, by hindering the oxidizing processes in the skin. It promotes soft and supple skin, helps in reducing old scars and promotes healing. Neem also stimulates collagen production, good for aging skin. Indeed, if used regularly, Neem oil helps smooth wrinkles and fine lines while helping to prevent the signs of aging. Neem oil may prove to be a natural remedy for eczema symptoms — including dry, red, itchy skin — and be very soothing, but it will not cure the root causes for eczema.
