What does the product description say?
"An indulgent shower cream that gently cleanses and conditions for skin that feels supple, soft and comforted."
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (cetearyl alcohol, coco-glucoside, glyceryl stearate, sodium laurate, sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, sucrose cocoate, xanthan gum) 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: coco-glucoside
