WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (cetearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, coco-glucoside, glyceryl caprylate, glyceryl laurate, glyceryl stearate citrate, oleic acid, polyglyceryl-4 caprate, sodium lauroyl glutamate, sodium lauroyl lactylate, stearic acid, stearyl alcohol, 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: coco-glucoside
