Is Benzalkonium Chloride Effective for Fighting Acne?

Is it true that washing the skin with a mild soap followed up with a solution that contains Benzalkonium Chloride (no more than 0.3% concentration - commonly used in ear piercing antiseptic) is likely to significantly reduce acne as it penetrates the skin and kills the pesky bacterium. If so, is it a common ingredient in over the counter acne products?
