What does the product description say?
"Rice bran, cranberry seed and jojoba oils soothe, smooth and hydrate stressed and dehydrated 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: glycerin.

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: cocos nucifera oil, oryza sativa bran oil.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: ceramide 3

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (camellia sinensis leaf extract, vaccinium macrocarpon seed oil) that might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin to lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun). There is not enough evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin though.
