    Question What's gentler: Tea Tree, Benzoyl Peroxide or Salicylic acid?

    Im not sure myself, but from the stuff I used, the feeling I get is that Pure Tea Tree is the most potent, and least gentlest, 2% Salicylic Acid is second most potent and second gentlest and Benzoyl Peroxide 10% (clearasil) is the most gentlest...
    What does everyone else think?

    really? Thats just from how i feel when I put the stuff on... But I thought 10% benzoyl peroxide is supposed to be really strong (strongest without prescription as clearasil says).

    Definitely Tea Tree. I wish i never used clearasil, it nearly burned my skin honestly. Tea tree is probably just as strong with less irritation. Salycilic acid just doesn't work. If you're thinking about tea tree, try getting the brand Dessert Essence.

    Exclamation

    For me Salicylic Acid works best - BP gave me an itchy red spot and pure tea tree oil worked for a while then I think I developed an allergic reaction to it because it burned my skin - made it extremely red and cracked! Be careful with the Tea Tree oil!!

    what section can you find Tea Tree Oil in at a place like Wal-Mart. I never seem to find it. What kind of products are around it?
