I have 1-month old scar on my face. Now I am using silicone gel against scars. On the internet I found that in such cases, it will also be useful to apply such products as vitamin E (liquid form), aloe vera gel, petroleum jelly, coconut oil, lavender oil, linseed oil, honey and other products containing bio-oil.

I have a question. Does it make sense to apply these substances on the scar to minimize the scarring? Does it actually work against scars? Some sources write about a significant positive effect against scarring while others state that such products have not been shown to be of much benefit.

    It would be more helpful if you could provide the site from which your research was based.
