Vitamin E oil + scars(minor)

There are studies that say vitamin E oil doesnt help reduce scaring, but thoughs studies were done on major burn victims. Im curious if vitamin E oil works on minor scars that are left over from a bad scrape or a premature scab that was pulled off (in my case, minor scars on my arm from eczema).

Could it be that people are "fooled" to believe that their scars are getting better because the vitamin E oil moisturizes better than the typical lotion?

I am japanese so minor scars do not fade as well as caucasian's.
Any comments or suggestions would be very helpful!
