    Neem Oil — a naturally occurring pesticide found in seeds from the neem tree — is made up of several components. Azadirachtin — the active ingredient in Azatrol AC — is the most active of these components for pest control. Azadirachtin acts as an anti-feedant, insect growth regulator and as a repellent. It has very low mammalian toxicity and is generally considered non-toxic. Neem Oil is used in cosmetics, soaps, toothpaste and pet shampoos. Azadirachtin can be irritating to the skin and stomach.

    Hope this helps!
