Neem oil is an excellent moisturising oil and skin tonic. It contains vitamin E, other essential amino acids and some percentages of fatty acids.
Neem oil is bio-degradable and has been proven to be non toxic to mammals, birds, bees or earthworms. It does not harm adult beneficial insects.The benefits of adding Neem oil to equine products is fantastic news, as this amazing essential oil repels biting flies, mosquitoes, ticks, sand flies and reduces infestations! Neem products are unique in that for most insects they are not outright killers.One outstanding Neem component, Azadirachtin, disrupts the metamorphosis or insect larvae. By inhibiting molting, it keeps larvae from developing into pupae and the insect dies without producing a new generation. Azadirachtin is repugnant to insects and they will rather starve to death than touch food sources which carry a trace of it. It can deter biting insects more effectively than the synthetic chemical “DEET” which can be found in hundreds of consumer insect repellents.
