I developed this cream for an African American friend who is allergic to a lot of shop bought products, but it is for any skin type. Made primarily using Cocoa Butter & Coconut Oil then added in other oils for healing like Hemp Seed Oil which nourishes the skin and hair with Omega 3, 6, and 9. Then I added Calendula Oil which also has skin healing qualities and also has absorbing values so the cream really soaks into your skin. I then added Neem Oil, again for it's healing but it does so much more for the skin. Neem Oil and Neem leaves have been used in skin care for thousands of years. It is a highly treasured oil in India and is used extensively in Ayurvedic medicine for many skin issues. We are now seeing Neem Oil rise in popularity across Europe and more recently, in the United States.
Neem Oil is used in skin care because it’s loaded with nutrients. Neem contains extraordinarily high levels of antioxidants that help to protect the skin from environmental damage. Neem also contains carotenoids (similar to carotene) which provide high antioxidant compounds that help defend the skin against age-promoting free radicals.
Neem Oil is especially high in important fatty acids and vitamin E and is easily absorbed into the skin without leaving skin greasy. Once absorbed, these powerful properties work to rejuvenate the skin’s cells and restore elasticity.
When used regularly, this blend of compounds, makes Neem perfect for smoothing wrinkles and fine lines while helping to prevent the signs of aging. The saturation of antioxidants and vitamin E will help restore a youthful glow to dry or damaged skin and balance skin tone.
Antiviral – inhibits the growth of viruses
Anti-fungal – inhibits the growth of fungi
Antibacterial – destroying the growth of bacteria
Analgesic – providing pain relief
Anti-inflammatory – reduce certain signs of inflammation, swelling or tenderness

So this makes it a good source of relief for people with Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne and other sensitive skin conditions.
I added in a little white glittery mica powder which leaves a slight shimmer on your skin, this mixed with the oils above really makes your skin sparkle and come alive. Also you only need to use a very little of this cream because it is so rich and luxurious, a little goes a long way.
Use this Cream on your hair to give it a really deep conditioning treatment. Apply and put on shower cap and leave on all night for the best results. Or if you don't have time to wait apply, put on shower cap and heat your head with a hair dryer for about 5 minutes then leave on for 30 minutes. Wash, rinse and style. Your hair will be left silky smooth and shining.
This is intended for external use only, do not use on open wounds and cuts.
