What does the product description say?
"Dove Cool Moisture Beauty Bar combines the refreshing scents of cucumber and green tea with Dove mild cleansers for skin care to revitalize both your senses and your skin."
WIMJ summary for cleansing

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (lauric acid, sodium c14-16 olefin sulfonate, sodium laurate, sodium lauroyl isethionate, sodium oleate, sodium stearate, stearic acid) 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: sodium c14-16 olefin sulfonate
