In brief: Yes
The use of proactiv is safe for breastfeeding women.
Its active ingredient, benzoyl peroxide, does not appear to concentrate in noticeable amounts in breast milk. You should be careful to wash your hands after you apply it to your skin and before you handle the baby. As you know your baby's skin is very sensitive, and these products can cause skin irritation.
