Neem has more than 100 unique bio-active compounds, which have potential applications in agriculture, animal care, public health, and for even regulating human fertility. It has become important in the global context today because it offers answers to the major concerns facing mankind.

The earliest Sanskrit medical writings refer to the benefits of Neem’s fruits, seeds, oil, leaves, roots and bark. Each has been used in the Indian Ayurvedic and Unani systems of medicines, and is now being used in the manufacture of modern day medicinals, cosmetics, toiletries and pharmaceuticals.

Neem fruits, seeds, oil, leaves, bark and roots have such uses as general antiseptics, antimicrobials, treatment of urinary disorders, diarrhoea, fever and bronchitis, skin diseases, septic sores, infected burns, hypertension and inflammatory diseases. This is mainly due to the chemical constituents which enable Neem to protect itself from a multitude of pests by a substantial number of pesticidal ingredients.

Scientific research has confirmed many of the traditional uses of Neem, and this ancient tree now offers many exciting new therapeutic applications. It seems that Neem has many important modes of action, making it anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal and insecticidal. This wealth of properties has led to the development of many therapeutic personal care products.

In India, eczema and psoriasis are traditionally treated with preparations of Neem leaf. Twigs of neem were also chewed for oral hygiene and to help gum disease. Nowadays, there are many preparations available with Neem in India. This herb can be seen as the main ingredient in toothpastes and mouth washes because it has shown to kill the harmful plaque-causing bacteria streptococcus mutans in clinical studies.

Traditionally, Neem preparation has been used for acne. Studies done at King George Medical College in Lucknow, India have found that Neem inhibits Propionibacterium acnes, an anaerobic pathogen, which plays a major role in pathogenesis of acne.
