"Tea Tree Purefine 30 Cleansing Foam"
From product name
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 (cocamidopropyl betaine, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, peg-7 glyceryl cocoate, potassium cocoyl glycinate, potassium laureth phosphate, sodium cocoyl alaninate) 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, peg-7 glyceryl cocoate
