I just purchased a bottle of Aiken Tea Tree Oil Spot Cream, which claims to protect skin from acne without flaking of skin. It has the active ingredient melaleuca alternifolia as in most tea tree oils. I want to ask, is the tea tree oil effective in reducing acne? I started on benzoyl peroxide a month ago and i noticed some results, which i am happy about. However, red spots are apparent after the bp treatment and i am wondering if tea tree oil has the same effects after reducing acne. I have heard that tea tree oil is less effective than bp, is that true?

I have 100% TTO and it is very potent. Good for cystic acne. I dilute it for inflamed whiteheads.

It does leave dark spots, but that goes away quicker than it does on BP. On mine anyways, coz I do weekly chemical peels.
