Worried About Scars? Try This….

In an interview on the NHL Network today, Johnny Bower a retired NHL goaltending legend, gave his secret for getting rid of his scars and wrinkles….

“They sell this stuff called cocoa butter,” he said. Then, he went on to say how he had huge scars around his mouth area. (He received 45 stitches from when a puck hit him in the face. He played goalie before the mask was developed.) “Eddie Short said, “Hey..you’ve got a couple of bad scars there. Why don’t you try using cocoa butter?”

Bower went on to say, “I had never heard of that before and was kind of skeptical since no one liked Eddie Short.” He then tried the stuff and it worked. “My scars have disappeared and so have my wrinkles,” he said.

Bower was talking about something during this interview, then said…”I forgot what I was saying. Sometimes I forget my wife’s name.” Funny stuff. 🙂

Very cool interview from NHL Live! And the NHL Network. There’s a show on the NHL Network on Sunday titled “50 Years Behind the Mask”. It’s about the history of the goalie mask. Can’t wait!

Find interesting? Kindly share….

  1. Oh yeah, I use cocoa butter. Love it and it works. My os was so impressed with the scar, but he thought it had to do with the 56 staples they used. I had the same scar opened 3 times, plus 2 scope scars and a open nerve scar all on the same knee. It looks great compared to some I have seen that did not use cocoa butter. It worked great to massage the knee in the beginning months. I suggest you all give it a try.

  2. Cocoa Butter is well known in the
    Caribbean for diminishing scars. Just started to use it on my knee scar (TKR) and it is already improving.
