Neem Cream gets to work on troubled skin, helping to calm irritation and soothe red, sensitive areas - perfect for those prone to eczema. Skin itchy and bumpy? The application of Neem Cream also soothes and brings comfort to areas that have flared up after unknown allergies, an over-reaction to the sun or insect bites, helping the skin recover.
Our Neem cream is made from the tincture of Neem leaf. The extraction method is known as alcoholic extraction and is used for most of the A.Vogel herbal remedies, including our well-known Echinaforce® Echinacea. It helps us to ensure that all the beneficial properties of Neem leaf are extracted and used for our Neem cream.
“The soothing effects of Neem cream were almost instant.”
My very positive Neem experience was in 2004/2005 when I was deployed to work as part of the Military Headquarters in Baghdad (Iraq). Midday temperatures were frequently in the mid 40C's and sometimes up as high as 50C. Sweat was a problem and because we couldn’t shower or change clothes on a frequent basis, and worked in a stressful environment, sweat rash became a problem for many.
I personally suffered from quite bad sweat rash with three-dimensional welt like protrusions, and it was quite painful at times.
The American doctor in Baghdad prescribed steroid cream, which didn't work at all, and I didn't feel comfortable using it. However, I got some Neem Cream sent out and it was an almost overnight miracle: the swellings went down, the discomfort disappeared and from that day on I used Neem cream as a preventive rather than a cure and I've never had another occurrence of the problem. I have been a fan of Neem ever since and a pot always travels with me.
My younger son is a Chef, and he was working long, hard hours in difficult high-tension kitchen conditions, and as a result he got a bad case of foot rot (on both feet), I'm convinced it was a sweat related rot. It got so sore that he had difficulty in walking. As he also had difficulty in getting time off go to the doctor I lent him some of my Neem and he was right as rain in time at all. Now he always has a pot of Neem in and never travels without it.
