For more than 5000 years, Panax ginseng has been highly treasured in Chinese traditional medicine, with the belief that this mysterious plant with its man-shaped, bifurcated root promotes longevity, helps to maintain equilibrium in the human body and enhances our body's ability to resist various illnesses. For these reasons, Panax ginseng has been one of the most sought after natural medicines in the world. The genus Panax derives its name from the Greek words pan (all) and akos (healing).
Panax ginseng has been extensively studied in numerous laboratories. Kimura  reported on the efficacy of topical Panax ginseng in promoting wound healing in laboratory animals. Morisaki  in 1995 showed that the local administration of ginseng extract markedly improved wound healing in diabetic and aging rats, proving the thousand year-old beliefs by modern scientific methodologies.
In laboratory experiments, Choi  reported on ginseng's ability to promote and improve wound healing. In another study  Panax ginseng was shown to stimulate growth of skin cells during wound healing. Further studies by Pazyar  revealed that ginseng inhibits NF-kappa B, TGF-β, IL-6, ACE and MMP-2, factors that play a pivotal role in keloid and scar formation.
ScarFormula® was formulated by Dr. Michael Tirgan, a keloid specialist who focuses on treatment and research in keloid disorder and heavy scarring. Having treated several hundred patients with keloids and heavy scars, Dr. Tirgan formulated the first scar and keloid cream that is based on scientific and laboratory research. The quest continues to improve upon what we have to treat these conditions with and to find even better treatments for them. Until we discover better topical treatments for scars and keloids, ScarFormula® is the most logical choice for treatment and prevention of scars.
Based on scientific laboratory evidence, and until we discover better topical treatments for scars and keloids, ScarFormula® is the most logical choice for treatment and prevention of scars. ScarFormula® cream was carefully crafted for use in wound healing, scars and for keloid care.
Panax Ginseng has been widely used in China, Japan and Korea to treat various conditions and to enhance resistance to many illnesses. Ginseng contains many bioactive constituents, including various ginsenosides that are believed to have antioxidant, immune-stimulatory, and anti-aging properties .
Further Laboratory studies by Lee  have revealed that Panax Ginseng has a significant Radio-protective effect and reduces photo-aging. Ginseng may also be useful in the prevention and treatment of skin photo-aging, wrinkles and as an anti-aging treatment.
What differentiates ScarFormula® from all other products is that its formulation is based on the extensive prior laboratory research that has consistently demonstrated anti keloid and anti scar properties of Ginseng. On the other hand, there is a void in medical literature about the scientific merit of silicone (which is sold under several different brands), onion extract that is the main ingredient of Mederma, or any other products marketed for treatment of scars or keloids.
