"Wash Face"
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 (decyl glucoside, polyglyceryl-6 distearate, stearic acid, xanthan gum) 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.

Even though this formulation is mild, the following cleansing agents could trigger an irritation or allergy for some people: decyl glucoside

"Formulated with menthol to give skin an awakening boost first thing in the morning, apricot seed to help slough away dead and dulling skin cells to reveal bright, smooth skin, cannabis seed oil to maintain moisture balance, strengthen the skin's moisture barrier and keep skin looking happy and healthy as well as squalene to protect from free radicals, prepare to fall in love with the results this cleansing scrub achieves."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.
