Does aloe Vera gel, cocoa butter lotion, or vitamin E oil heal mild scars on the face and body?

In brief: Possible

There is no proven scar healer out there that I am aware of, keeping the area clean and soft should help with decreasing the amount of scar build up.
I have always thought that sunblock for the first year on a scar is important to avoid excessive scarring as sun damage can exacerbate a scar. Most scars overtime though do improve, the body usually does a good job at healing itself.
