Pracaxi oil, which is a natural substance derived from the seed of the Pracaxi tree in the Amazon rainforest. Pracaxi oil is prized for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. In many parts of the world, it has been used in natural, traditional, and modern medicine to treat a variety of conditions for generations.
Silicone, which has been widely used in treatment since the early 1980s, has been shown to be extremely effective in reducing the appearance of scars. Several clinical studies have confirmed the efficacy of both silicone sheeting and silicone gel. The difference is silicone sheeting is an over the counter item, while silicone gel is a prescription covered item.
The Key to effective scar cream is in the Silicone:
How does Silicone work?
- Increases hydration of stratum corneum skin layer
- Facilitates regulation of fibroblast production
- Reduction in collagen production
- Allows the skin to “breathe”
- Resulting in a softer and flatter scar
- Protects the scarred tissue from bacterial invasion
- Prevents bacteria-induced excessive collagen
- Modulates the expression of several different growth factors that stimulate fibroblasts to synthesize collagen and fibronectin
- Thus, restoring the balance of fibrogenesis and fibrolysis
