For anyone who wants to know how to get rid of dark scars, these natural ingredients all contain antioxidants, which help prevent free radical damage and resultant hyperpigmentation.

Several kinds of oil stimulate collagen production, which aids cell regeneration. They are occlusive emollients and have anti-inflammatory properties, which aid in healing and help prevent scratching. They make wonderful treatments for acne scars, surgical scars, scratches and more. In addition, each of them has its own particular benefits. Together in a scar cream, they can help remove scars.

Shea butter contains omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants that inhibit keloid scar formation. Excessive collagen can deposit near an acne scar, scratch, burn or surgical incision as it heals and causes keloid scarring that reaches beyond the original injury.

Avocado oil is especially rich in oleic acid, which penetrates deeply to hydrate and soften skin. Avocado oil contains natural sunscreens that protect sensitive scar tissues from the sun.
