"Peppermint oil is believed to open pores, allowing for a deeper cleanse."
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (hydrogenated castor oil, polyglyceryl-4 laurate, sodium cocoyl isethionate) 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.
