What does the product description say?
"Harnessing the power of his signature TFC8 Complex to support skin renewal and provide cells with nutrients needed for optimal health, alongside nutrient-rich candelilla wax (an equally moisturising, vegan alternative to beeswax) that forms a protective veil over your lips."
WIMJ summary

This product can help improve hydration of the skin with the two types of ingredients.

The first type is called “humectants”:
these ingredients help attract water. When humectants are on the surface of the skin, they “pull in” the moisture from the outside environment, or from within deeper layers of the skin. The following ingredients in this product do the job: arginine, glycerin.

This product also contains ingredients called “occlusives”. They help reduce the speed with which our skin loses moisture to the outside environment. These ingredients also help soften the upper layer of the skin, so it feels less tight and nicer to the touch. The following ingredients in this product do the job: arginine, butyrospermum parkii butter.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: oligopeptide-1, oligopeptide-4
