well there two different ingredients that fight acne but the different (i probably wrong on this) is that sal. acid is

well an acid that probably burns and kills the bacteria lol and for ben. perox i think its stuff that puts oxygen

within ur pores to kill the acne bacteria. again im probably completely wrong on this :think:
