What does the product description say?
"Comfort Zone, Active Pureness Cleansing gel with 3% Gluconolactone."
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (caprylyl/capryl glucoside, coco-glucoside, disodium cocoamphodiacetate, glyceryl caprylate, glyceryl oleate, lauryl glucoside, polyglyceryl-6 oleate, sodium cocoyl glutamate, sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate, sodium surfactin) 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, glyceryl oleate

WIMJ summary

This product can help exfoliate the skin. In other words, it helps break down the bonds between dead cells on the surface of the skin and speed up the skin turnover. 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: gluconolactone.

It can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin tone with long-term application. Can help neutralize free radicals
