The following natural sources may be applied to the surface area of healed dry scar tissue and are reported to be beneficial, if used alongside medical management advice:

Before trying any of the remedies above, thoroughly wash and dry the scar and the area around it. Only use these remedies on healed scars, not open wounds. Always do a test patch before trying a new product or ingredient on your skin to prevent irritation and rash. If any of these remedies cause irritation, stop use immediately.
