Yes.: Treatment consists of Psoralen photo-chemotherapy (PUVA) , home remedies like Psoralen seeds, Babchi or tamarind seeds but you can use Palmer's cocoa butter formula as well not for treatment but to soften and moisturize the skin.

Depends: on what you are trying to do. Cocoa butter will moisturize your skin but will not stop the loss of the melanin pigmentation. There are some home remedies used such as Psoralea, Babchi or tamarind seeds or even horse radish mixed with ginger juice you can spread on the skin.Psoralen photochemotherapy (PUVA) ultraviolet rays are traditionally used.
