Benzoyl peroxide is mildly keratolytic, acting against comedones at all stages of their development. It is an oxidising agent with bactericidal activity against Propionibacterium acnes, the organism implicated in acne vulgaris. It is also sebostatic, counteracting the excessive sebum production associated with acne. Clindamycin is a lincosamide antibiotic with bacteriostatic action against Gram-positive aerobes and a wide range of anaerobic bacteria
