Organix-South offers new TheraNeem Naturals liquid soap
BOWLING GREEN, Fla. — Organix-South has introduced TheraNeem Naturals Liquid Neem Soap, a neem and castile soap made with certified organic oils and no harsh detergents, which can compromise the skin and hair, the company announced this week. The liquid soap is packaged in 16-fl.-oz. bottles and comes in two varieties: unscented and lavendar. Neem liquid soap is free of parabens and sulfates; plus, the products are cruelty-free and vegan.
TheraNeem Naturals Liquid Neem Soap has a variety of uses for the body and as a household cleaning solution. As a face and body wash, you simply apply using hands, cloth or loofah and then massage over face and body, rinsing well. For the hair, apply a small amount to palm and massage into wet hair; then rinse. At bath time, squeeze desired amount into running water for a soothing bath soak. Liquid neem soap is safe for children and adults. For all-natural cleaning, use four parts water to one part liquid soap for all household chores. It can even be used as a natural detergent substitute.
“Formulated to be gentle and soothing, this liquid soap is a fresh approach to body care. Your skin feels clean and nourished after use with no filmy after effects,” announced Autumn Blum, Organix-South founder and formulating chemist. “I’ve always loved castile soaps, and we made them even better by adding in a generous amount of organic aloe and multi-purpose neem oil!”
Packed with antioxidants and essential fatty acids, neem protects, nourishes and moisturizes sensitive skin and lends itself well to soaps, shampoos, conditioners, creams and many other body care products.
