"Diabetics' Dry Skin Relief Cleansing Body Wash Fragrance Free"
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 (carbomer, cholesterol, coco-betaine, coconut acid, glyceryl stearate, hydrogenated coconut acid, peg-100 stearate, peg-150 pentaerythrityl tetrastearate, peg-30 dipolyhydroxystearate, peg-6 caprylic/capric glycerides, ppg-5-ceteth-20, sodium cocoyl isethionate, sodium lauroyl lactylate, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, trideceth-6, 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-betaine, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate

Skin often appears softer and brighter after exfoliation, but overdoing it can result in disrupted skin barrier. The following ingredient is doing the exfoliating job in this product: hydroxyethyl urea.
