What does the product description say?
"Fortified with a Triple Defense Complex, the lightweight, concentrated oil formula replenishes optimum levels of moisture and hydration, whilst supporting the skin's natural barrier function to help defend against environmental aggressors that can lead to sensitivity."
WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: squalane, borago officinalis seed oil.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (tetrahydrobisdemethoxydiferuloylmethane, tetrahydrodemethoxydiferuloylmethane, tetrahydrodiferuloylmethane, vaccinium macrocarpon seed oil) that might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin to lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun). There is not enough evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin though.
