What does the product description say?
"Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover Pads"
From product name
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (disodium lauroamphodiacetate, hexylene glycol, poloxamer 184, sodium trideceth sulfate) and should be able to cleanse the skin gently. Still keep in mind that any cleansing can disrupt the skin barrier, and most people do not need to cleanse their skin more than once per day.

Can contain potent anti-oxidant compounds (abbreviated ECG, GCG, EGC, and EGCG) that might help protect the skin from free radicals. Can help calm down inflammation and has some anti-bacterial properties. Unfortunately, these antioxidants are unstable and lose their effectiveness very quickly in products. The concentration of the antioxidant compounds in the extract also tends to be low to be effective in topical formulation
1.2% - 1.8%
Helps oil and water mix together
1.4% - 2.2%
1.1% - 1.6%
Helps create a more spreadable product texture
0.45% - 1.05%
