You're probably thinking what the heck is Sebo de Macho? It literally means "a man's tallow". Tallow is a fatty substance extracted from sheep and cattle used to make soaps, candles and etc. It's true. Animal fats is one of the main ingredients in a a lot of bar soaps in the market today. But Sebo de macho is not a man's fat. It's just the name.
This is also house hold name in the Philippines. As a matter of fact, my mom, grandma and the rest of my family have used this for years. Most of the people I know who have used it can attest that it really works, while there are some who were disappointed. I did a lot of research online on how this product came about, ingredients and any valuable info nothing came up. I only found a bunch of testimonials from people saying that it works.
I do recall my mom putting it on my legs and knees when I was little kid because I used to scrape myself a lot from playing outside. Man, kids nowadays doesn't play like we used to back in the days. We used to play in the rain, run in the mud, play baseball, sipa, kickball, Chinese garter and never ending tag and hide and seek. Now kids are marinating their butts on the couch playing video games, and in front of youtube watching videos lol. But anyway, do I remember Sebo de Macho working? To be honest, not really. I can only say that I don't see any major scars on my legs. I don't know if it's from Sebo de Macho or simply my skin just improved over the years on its own.
I sent messages to my friends in the Philippines on Facebook asking about their thoughts on the product. They all said it worked for them and their families, but it depends on the age of the scars. The older the scar, the harder it is to remove. It can lighten it but it won't thoroughly remove it. Made sense to me.
It came in a really small container of 12g . The texture is like a balm. It's smooth, non-sticky, odorless and applies clear with a shiny finish that disappear after awhile. Apply it like you would apply cream on your skin but you only need a little bit and you massage it on top of the scar using your fingers.
It is available in the Philippines but you can purchase this on pinoygrocery.com. I got mine from my mom ^_^
Have you guys every heard of Sebo De Macho? Or do you know any scar removing products?
