WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (butyrospermum parkii butter, theobroma cacao seed butter). In theory, they could help neutralize free radicals in skin and lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun), but there is no evidence that these ingredients can have a noticeable effect in skin.
