What does the product description say?
"Clinically proven to treat mild to moderate rosacea."
WIMJ summary

Does not contain the most effective ingredients for moisturization. The emollients (triticum vulgare germ extract) can help soften the upper layer of the skin. Keep in mind though that this product lacks humectants that attract water. You might want to use a separate product with ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin in addition (use before this product for the best results).
