Apollo Sebo De Macho...scar remover whaaa???

You're probably thinking WTH is Sebo De Macho? Lets talk about the name. It literally means "a man's tallow". Tallow is a fatty substance extracted from sheep and cattle used to make soaps, candles and etc. Of course it's not a man's tallow. It's just the name.

This is also house hold name in the Philippines. My mom, grandma and the rest of my family have used this for years. Most of the people 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 but I failed. I only found a bunch of testimonials from people saying that it really 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 were outside running in mud and rain, playing 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 it working? Umm..not really but I can say that I don't see any major scars on my legs.

I made a few messages on facebook asking my friends in the Philippines what they think about it and, they all said this product works but it always depends on how old the scar is. The older the scar, the harder it is to remove. It can lighten it but it won't thoroughly remove it.



It's in a really small container with 12g of product. The texture is like a balm. It's smooth, non-sticky, odorless and applies clear with a shiny finish that disappears after awhile. You apply it like you would apply a cream on your skin but you only need a little bit and you massage it on top of the scar using your fingers.




I'm not going to have a before and after picture right now because it's going to take forever to see if this product is really effective. However, I will try it on some scars I have on my body and I will keep you guys updated.

This 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?

  1. I have never heard of it, but I used to use this thing called Top Gel that is made of some type of animal placenta. Once I discovered this I just had to stop. It worked wonders through--faded my acne scars, but the smell was highly fragrant and it lightened my skin way too much. This product sounds interesting BECKY!

  6. OMG, I know the people that own pinoygrocery.com, they're situated here in Katy right by where I work. FREAKY! LOL.

    Unfortunately, I don't believe in that folk remedy stuff. Bring on the prescription cremes and surgery is what I say.

    Oh, HI BECKY! I know, I'm so temperamental. I read your blog all the time though, but I haven't gotten around starting my blog back again. Maybe someday, right?

    BYE!

  7. my sister used to always use it on her legs from her bug bite scars that she got in the philippines lol. it really does work though. i never used it because i was too lazy to take care of my bug bite scars ;p i agree with "rosey", if you use it religiously i'm sure it will work for you.

  8. i've tried this and judging from the lack of scars on my body where i use to apply it, it really works. :) i guess it varies from people to people but i do hope you get the same results. :)

    I'm so happy that you're featuring pinoy made products on your blog. :) keep it up, sis!

    re: kids nowadays, i'm thinking the same thing! I have a lot of body injuries from playing as a child while my cousins idea of playing outside is inside an arcade. hehehe!

  9. I used it when my mom gave it to me after a bad fall on uneven concrete which gave me a really bad scar on my right leg. it's not visible anymore. :D it works :D

  10. My Mom has this and was using it on an old burn scar that was a few inches wide. (It was a really bad burn). I noticed that it did improve the texture and color of the scar, so I guess it worked for her.

  11. I never heard of it but I love it already! I read somewhere a long time ago that putting vitamin-e on a scar would help reduce appearance so that's what I've been doing for years; and it really works! But sometimes I just get lazy (having to pop one open just to get to the syrupy-substance) so I'm definitely going to check this out.

  12. don't use sebo de macho on the face!!!. it ruined my face...
    it will super clog your pores.

  13. Ive never heard of this. it sounds like an interesting product, but the name sounds so gross to me. In panish, sebo does mean tallow but it more commonly refers to solidified fat. Sebo is used for sometime of cooking, but i have always found it very gross. I have an image of spreading that solidified fat on my skin. Haha.

  16. I use this, I've yet to see amazing results, like what I've been hearing, but then again I don't use this as regularly as I think I'm meant to. My mom gets it for me, and it is cheaper than bio-oil, so there is no harm in trying it. The only thing is, that after a few months, the product starts to smell, which is really off putting. But I'm holding out hope for the many scars on my legs.

  17. I am using cebo de macho for about 1 month now, on my face for age spots. I really like it made my skin lighter. Also my face does not itch as much anymore. I haven't finished that whole small container since I use very little, although I put on cebo de macho everytime after washing face with soap and water. Dreading getting old. Almost 40. yuck. So must take care of skin.

    1. I am using the same product as yours. And base on my observations, the scars on my legs didn't fade quickly. Maybe it will take you a month or two. I am putting some calamansi juice on my legs even though I'm applying the sebo de macho so that the scars will fade more quickly and easily because I'm also ashamed of wearing shorts and people will notice it. I hope it helps you.

    1. do you apply it at the same time?

  21. I can testify that this product is effective but I think only for new scars, and for old scars it would only lighten up the scars. I never thought it was effective when I had skin bruises after a vehicular accident, I applied it after my wounds getting healed. It's totally effective yet so cheap.

  22. Every woman are wanted to look smart. There are so many products are available in the stores in which some organic natural skin care products are really helpful to maintain a healthy and beautiful skin for long time. I never heard about this before but sound seems good.

  23. I have this but rarely use it. Have been advised to use it now that I have been attacked by bed bugs over several months. Is it safe on pregnant women?

    1. Yes you can use it even if you're pregnant. When I was pregnant with my 1st child, I used it to lighten up stretchmarks and scars from wounds I've been getting during pregnancy. After giving birth, I still used it to lighten my caesarian section scar and you can barely see it now so it really works!

  28. I'm currently using it religiously due to my more or less a hundred of wound spots due to chicken pox.. I'm hoping that this sebo de macho will do a lot to bring back my normal skin... Some says it takes a week for them to get off the scars by just using that ointment and im hoping that to happen in my case.. :)))
