"Invigorating Body Wash ."
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 (cocamidopropyl betaine, decyl glucoside, disodium laureth sulfosuccinate, peg-150 pentaerythrityl tetrastearate, peg-6 caprylic/capric glycerides, ppg-5-ceteth-20, sodium cocoamphoacetate, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, sucrose cocoate) 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: cocamidopropyl betaine, decyl glucoside
