What does the product description say?
"While ordinary soaps and face soap can strip skin of essential nutrients, Dove beauty bar has mild cleansers to care for skin as it cleans."
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (cocamidopropyl betaine, lauric acid, sodium lauroyl isethionate, sodium palm kernelate, sodium palmitate, 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: cocamidopropyl betaine, sodium palmitate
