What does the product description say?
"Keep the delicate eye area perfectly hydrated with rich lipids designed to moisturize the skin."
WIMJ summary

This product can help improve hydration of the skin with the two types of ingredients.

The first type is called “humectants”:
these ingredients help attract water. When humectants are on the surface of the skin, they “pull in” the moisture from the outside environment, or from within deeper layers of the skin. The following ingredients in this product do the job: allantoin, aloe barbadensis leaf extract.

This product also contains ingredients called “occlusives”. They help reduce the speed with which our skin loses moisture to the outside environment. These ingredients also help soften the upper layer of the skin, so it feels less tight and nicer to the touch. The following ingredients in this product do the job: prunus armeniaca kernel oil, sesamum indicum seed oil.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: panthenol

A non-drying alcohol. Works as an emollient. Helps water and oil mix together and creates a nice product texture
A more stable but less bio-available form of vitamin E compared to Tocopherol. Might help moisturize and protect the skin from free radicals, but mostly used in low concentrations to stabilize other ingredients.
