As Neem oil is easily available in India, there are chances of adulteration and it is sometimes really difficult to find pure and cold pressed available at a reasonable price for many people out there.
But not for you, as you landed on this blog post today. I done done enough research on what are some of the best cold pressed Neem oil for skin and hair that are available in India.
So let’s get started with further a due.
Best Cold Pressed Neem Oil for Skin and Hair in India
For easy access, I have provided links from where you can buy these oils. If you are interested, go ahead and get one bottle of Pure, Cold Pressed Neem oil for your skin and hair today from this list.
And before I start, Let me tell you..You will not find any high end bands here like Kama Ayurveda, Forest essential oils etc..etc. The reason is Even though they are certified organic some of them don’t have recyclable packaging or biodegradable and some are highly priced. Though I have tried th oils frmo these brands a couple of times before, I did not feel any drastic quality difference from the below mentioned brands. In fact, some of them come in Glass bottles (Amber) which can extend the self life of the oil unlike plastic ones.
And here you go.. the list of some of the best cold pressed Neem oil for skin and hair available in India.
1. BONSOUL 100% Pure Cold Pressed Unrefined Wild Neem Oil
This is ranked number one in this list for a reason.
I know not many are aware of this brand, but if you have already read my post on 99% pure Aloe Vera gels available in India then you know how much I like their Aloe Vera gel. Ever since I have used their Aloe Vera gel, I was have happy that I found this brand. I have also used witch hazel from this brand, review will go live on this blog soon.
Coming to the Neem oil of this brand, it is one of the finest of the quality among other brand’s Neem oils I have ever tried. The aroma is very strong and pungent same as if you are smelling some raw Neem seeds/fruits.
One of the best part that I love about this brand is that their transparency. The way the differentiate their products and highlight the key aspects of their quality is sure to fall for.
This is what i have found o their website about their Neem oil.

Price: INR 150 for 100ml.
2. Vilvah Cold Pressed Organic Neem Oil
Vilvah is another brand which I encountered recently. Their handmade soaps and Aloe Vera gels are a must try products, if you haven’t already. They have a separate section dedicated for couple of Cold Pressed carrier oils out of which Neem oil is one of them.
This Neem oil from Vilvah is 100% pure and organic, cold pressed from organic Neem seeds. They also have Acne serum which is made out of this Neem oil and tea tree oil.
Price: INR 230 for 30ml.
I did not find this product in either amazon or Flipkart. You can directly go to their website for placing the order.
3. Juicy Chemistry Cold Pressed Organic Neem Oil
This brand needs no introduction. You would have already known about this brand, if you are an Organic and natural skin/hair care junkie like me. Juicy chemistry had also recently been got their products certified by ECOCERT. For a product to be certified Organic by ECOCERT COSMOS Oraganic, at least 95% of the total ingredients must be organic according to the list set out in the standard. Only a simple physical transformation is permitted; So this states the level of quality maintained by this brand.
Now coming to their Organic Cold Pressed Neem oil, this is one of the carrier oil present among several Certified Organic cold pressed carrier oils on their list of products.
Juicy chemistry’s Neem oil is NON-GMO product and this Neem oil is extracted from the Neem fruits of the plants.
This oil can be used for both skin and hair to treat many skin conditions like Acne, psoriasis and eczema. It is also used to treat scalp conditions like dandruff and scalp itchiness as mentioned by the brand on their website.
The only Con I find is their price. The fact that India has abundant Neem trees almost everywhere, I dont find a logic in buying need oil worth this much for no reason. But still if you are a brand bragger, go for it. Nothing wrong.
Price: INR 280 for 30ml
4. Hathmic Cold Pressed Pure Virgin Neem Oil
Hathmic is my go to brand for Pure Coconut oil and castor oils. If you haven’t checked out these top ranked articles of this blog yet, here they are for you.
So, Hathmic needs no introduction now. Their carrier oils are all virgin, unrefined and pure. Hathmic natural Neem oil is Extracted using traditional Technique of Cold Pressing to keep the natural nutrients and antioxidants intact.
Some of the key highlights of Hathmic’s Pure Cold pressed Virgin Neem oil are

5. Rey Naturals Wild Crafted Pure Cold Pressed Unrefined Neem Oil
Rey Naturals is yet another wild crafted Pure cold pressed Neem oil that is extracted from the seeds of naturally grown Neem trees. To ensure the best therapeutic properties are intact, they ensured the extraction process to be done in small batches,
Rey Naturals’ wild crafted cold pressed Neem oil comes in a blue glass dropper bottle that preserves the oil long and helps to keep out deteriorating sunlight.
This Neem oil can be used for both skin and hair. The color of this oil is a bit darker than the other oils that I used but the odor is not so pungent like the Bonsoul Neem Oil.
Overall, its a good quality Cold pressed Neem oil that is suitable for daily usage purposes like oil cleansing for acne prone skin and scalp massages for treating dandruff.

6. Nature’s Tattva Cold Pressed Neem oil
Nature’s Tattva Neem oil is extracted from Neem seeds in Tamil Nadu they are of the purest grade, hand picked for high oil content. Their Neem oil has a slightly thicker consistency, a proof of it being cold pressed hexane filled processed Neem oil has a much lighter color and consistency.
The Packaging of Nature’s Tattva Cold Pressed Neem oil is now changed and the oil now comes in a spray bottle as shown in the image above. The price seems reasonable too.
Price: INR 500 for 200ml
7. Kalp Neem oil -Pure Cold Pressed Unrefined,Natural & Undiluted
Kalp is another brand who provide cold pressed and unrefined Carrier oils. One of their popularly sold item is the Unrefined and Pure Cold Pressed oil. This Neem oil from Kalp is potent and the odor too is strong and pungent.
The packaging is done in a glass bottle with which you get a dropper too for easy application purposes and also to avoid any extra spillage of the oil.
This also can be used for both your skin and hair. This band claims that this also works effectively as a bug repellent, but I have never tried Neem oil as a bug repellent yet. Anyone who has tried it? Let me know in the comments below.
Overall, its decent and genuine product from Kalp and a must try. The actual cost seems a bit expensive, but I got this at a discounted price on amazon.
Price: INR 600 for 100ml.
I could only find these 7 Neem oils that are cold Pressed, unrefined and pure, available in India and are worth buying. I am still waiting to find more to round off this list to 10. I will update this this anytime soon in the future.
