Please note: we are aware of the potential link between essential oils (especially tea tree and lavender oil) and prepubertal gynecomastia in young cisgender (non-transgender) boys. If you are using this cream on your top surgery scars, you do not need to worry about breast growth. This only affects prepubescent boys who regularly use essential oils. If you are NOT a cisgender prepubesant boy, this should not affect you.
