Hi, thank you for the enquiry. The contents, such as palm ash, tamarind extract, tar and plantain peel, coconut/palm oil, shea butter, aloe, oats, vitamin E etc., found in black soap have been used widely for conditions such as eczema, oily skin, psoriasis, blemishes. Do a Google search and that will help you understand the historical use of black soap and the reviews which comes with it. You can also log into this link (http://www.ejournalofscience.org/archive/vol2s/vol2s_28.pdf) which was published in 2012 to understand more about the igredients found in the soap and their uses. But as with most natural, herbal or pharmaceutical products, what works for one may not translate to similar results for another. Drying of skin can also be a problem with use of any pimple creams which you may currently be using; henceforth, do apply moisturizer which is suitable for your skin type. Scaring occurs when skin doesn't heal properly. Keeping the skin intact with proper skin care technique may help reduce scars.
