What does the product description say?
"Recommended for dry, sensitive and reactive skin types, the fragrance-free cleanser blends probiotic coconut yoghurt and oat kernel extract to restore balance to the microbiome and lift traces of dirt, oil and sunscreen without stripping natural oils."
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (caprylic acid, coco-glucoside, lauryl glucoside, polyglyceryl-4 laurate, sodium cocoamphoacetate, sodium cocoyl glutamate, sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate, sorbitan laurate, 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
