What does the product description say?
"Key Benefits A gentle cleanser that does not strip the skinBinchotan Japanese charcoal works to absorb impurities Activated charcoal powder acts as an exfoliatorHelps to brighten, purify, hydrate the skinInfused with jasmine, fruit extracts and algaeA vegan and cruelty-free formula UK300056011"
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, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, decyl glucoside, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, 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: decyl glucoside

"Mango, pineapple and papaya extracts work to loosen dead skin cells and exfoliate the skin, while jasmine helps to soothe and soften."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.
