Neem Oil

What is Neem Oil

Neem seed oil organic insect plant pet

PINK SUN Organic Neem Oil is extracted from the Azadirachta Indica tree, for its powerful and naturally occurring properties, traditionally recognised for a multitude of applications.

When prepared with other ingredients the active Azadirachtin (1000+ ppm) in organic neem oil has been shown to be an effective natural insect repellent for fleas, mites and other infestations on animals.  Organic neem oil also helps to maintain appearance and add shine to indoor and outdoor plant foliage.

The neem plant contains 'tetranortriperpenoids' or more commonly know 'liminoids'.  More than 41 of these chemicals work together enhancing the effect of neem oil.  Azadirachtin is the most active limioid found within Neem oil and over many years researchers have found azadirachtin (produced and stored in secretory cells) located in nearly all parts of the plant, including roots, stems, leaves and flowers.  Because secretory cells are most concentrated in the seed kernels of the neem tree, neem oil derived from neem seeds contains some of the highest concentrations of azadiractin available.
