Tea tree oil is a natural oil that's been proven to be as effective as benzoyl peroxide for treating acne. Both substances are antibacterial, but benzoyl peroxide can be overly irritating. Especially when combined with salicylic acid face wash, tea tree oil is a better alternative to a benzoyl peroxide regimen. Being a natural oil, it can also function as an effective moisturizer.
 
The study comparing tea tree oil to benzoyl peroxide can be found here:

Check out the Body Shop's Tea Tree oil line of products. I have used the toner and it worked nicely in conjunction with the rest of my regimen which includes: benzoyl peroxide, topical clindamycin, tretinoin and amoxicillin and spironolactone. I hit acne with both fists! And so far, finally, I am winning (like Charlie Sheen) and reclaiming my beautiful face!!!
