These ingredients are enriched with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that are suitable for all skin types as they deeply cleanse the skin, and maintain the balance in oil production.

They are rich in vitamins A, C and E, which are antioxidants that neutralise the free radicals/waste released by our cells and boost overall skin health.

A combination of the two can help with healing infinite skin issues as listed below:

Clears excess oil accumulation and breakouts

Neem and Aloe Vera helps in deep cleansing the skin. This further helps in removing excess oil that gets accumulated and causes severe acne, and redness on the skin.


The magical combination with its antibacterial properties helps prevent surface build up or oil build up on the skin to improve overall texture. Regular use of both the ingredients together leaves the skin looking radiant and rejuvenated.

A boost of natural hydration

When the weather is humid, greasiness can be the biggest bane. Aloe Vera has water dense properties. It performs a role of natural hydrator and prevents the skin from dehydration without packing in the greasy element that you might find in normal creams and moisturisers.

Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, it helps in minimising clogged pores. If used daily, aloe vera provides moisturisation and freshens up the skin.

Prevents skin infection

Neem is one of the best antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral agents on planet earth. It prevents the skin from various skin infections especially if you getting wet in the rain, wading through water-logged streets or wearing sweaty clothes for an extended period of time.

If used in a combination with aloe vera in an everyday product like a bodywash, one can stay protected from infections, while keeping skin healthy, smooth and supple.

Acts as an exfoliating and anti-pollution agent

Humid weather conditions lead to the expansion of pores that increases blackhead and whitehead breakouts. Excessive sweating can also create germ load on our skin especially under our arms, at the back of knees which need deep cleansing.

A Neem and Aloe Vera body wash can help rid your skin of these unwelcome guests. Their exfoliating properties help unclog pores, clean the skin from the inside out without drying or hurting the skin in any manner.

This also goes a long way in neutralising the ill-effects of pollutants, they cleanse daily toxins and environmental aggressors from urban environments and restore your skin’s look and feel.
