Who we are
The Neem Team started in 2003 and was the first to bring Theraneem toothpastes, mouthwashes and hair and skin care to the UK. We subsequently formulated our own, UK made 'The Neem Team' and 'Neem Therapy' hair and skincare products.
The Neem Team is a family run company led by veterinary surgeon Dr Suzy Reynolds. Suzy is passionate about holistic veterinary medicine, and further studies in naturopathy, western herbal medicine and ayurvedic medicine have convinced her that herbal medicines and natural remedies can help us and our pets become healthier for longer. She believes that we need to look at illness in the context of the environment, diet and habits, rather than just treat symptoms.
Suzy has worked in veterinary practice in the UK for almost 15 years helping cats, dogs, chickens, and other small animals. She has also worked at the University of Liverpool on research project SAVSNET, and recently as a consultant for top pet insurance company, Petplan. In between times she has raised her family, a small flock of chickens and foxy Labrador Retriever, Cedar. In 2020, Suzy came across The Neem Team through her interest in herbal medicine and took it on from medical microbiologist and founder Julie Preston, relocating the company from the beautiful south of Wales to our current position in the Chiltern Hills near London.
