We created Neem Citrus Splash because were challenged to formulate a light – and lightly fragranced – nearly all-natural product by a friend in Key West who loves neem but doesn’t love its smell.
We combined the healing properties of cold-pressed neem oil with a light citrus fragrance in a natural base of grapeseed, sunflower and sesame seed oil.
Neem oil, of course, is well known for its benefits to skin. Along with compounds that are anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, neem is packed with antioxidants. It will:
- Quickly soothe itches
- Stimulate collagen production (think facial wrinkles but also crepe arms and cellulite)
- Minimize scarring, warts and moles
- Boost your body’s immune system.
While grapeseed oil is less well known, it has properties that are similar to neem. Like neem, it’s cold-pressed from grape seeds, but has a fruity (grapey) aroma and soaks in quickly. It also helps:
- Tighten skin
- Minimize blemishes
- Prevent bruising
- And it’s high levels of Vitamin E help moisturize even very dry skin.
Sunflower oil contains multiple fatty acids that are vital for a healthy body — and healthy skin. It also contains high levels of Vitamin E and other antioxidants that help protect your skin from sun and other environmental toxins.
We use Neem Citrus Splash nearly every day, particularly now that temperatures are dropping. Just splash on after your shower to soothe even chronically dry skin, boost your body’s immune system and help alleviate minor aches.
We’ve chosen to use a very small concentration of a chemical fragrance because natural citrus scents may be phytotoxic in some situations, particularly in tropical climates like Key West.
Please let us know what you think! We think we haven’t gotten anywhere near as many great reviews as we should have!
