What does the product description say?
"The oil-free, hydrating formulation contains Mandelic Acid, an Alpha Hydroxy Acid for oily skin and the Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gluconolactone, to enhance radiance and make skin feel soft and smooth."
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (ceteareth-20, cetearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, hydrogenated lecithin, laureth-7, myristic acid, palmitic acid, peg-100 stearate, phosphatidylcholine, steareth-2, 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.
