"Tri-Active Resilience Cream to Oil Pro-Biome Cleanser"
From product name
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (candelilla/jojoba/rice bran polyglyceryl-3 esters, cetearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, decyl glucoside, disodium cocoyl glutamate, glyceryl stearate, sodium stearoyl lactylate, sorbitan oleate, sorbitan palmitate, 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: decyl glucoside

"Uplifting dirt, oil, dead skin cells and impurities from deep within the pores, the cleanser clarifies your skin’s surface."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.
