Does calamine lotion work?

I've been using Fresh Farmacy (which is amazing :D ), which has really cleared up my moderate-severe acne, after 8 years in which nothing worked! It has calamine in it, as well as some healing essential oils like rose, lavender, chamomile etc.

It also seems to be clearing up my scars, and even perhaps (am I just wishful-thinking this?) those scars (ice-pick) which have been there for years...

What I want to know is: is there any science behind why calamine would have this effect? I just wonder, because i am thinking of trying other calamine based treatments, e.g. mario badescu drying lotion, calamine lotion etc. Has anyone else found a result from using calamine?
