What does the product description say?
"That's why the team behind this intelligent product formulated gentle lactic acid (keeps skin at its optimal pH level and has hydrating and softening properties), prebiotics (feed your skin’s good bacteria and helps support the skin’s barrier, with an antibacterial action against bad ones), fermented rice water (traditionally used as facial and hair wash for centuries in Asia to improve skin complexion and hair condition), mafura oil (known to soothe and deeply moisturise and is particularly suitable for the delicate scalp) and panthenol (ie."
WIMJ summary for moisturizing

This product contains good ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. These ingredients are called "humectants": lactic acid, saccharomyces/rice ferment filtrate.

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. If the air is dry, humectants can speed up the moisture loss from the skin. This is why it is a good idea to use another product on top of this one to help "seal in" the moisture (look for ingredients like dimethicone, squalane, oils and butters).

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

WIMJ summary for evens skin tone

This product can help reduce hypepigmentation and even out the skin tone because it contains the following effective ingredients: lactic acid

Keep in mind that you would need to apply any topical skincare targetted at hypigmentation consistently for a couple of months to get a result. No topical skincare product can help get rid of hyperpigmentation (including post-acne marks and age spots) instantly.

WIMJ summary for exfoliation

This product can help exfoliate the skin. In other words, it helps break down the bonds between dead cells on the surface of the skin and speed up the skin turnover. Skin often appears softer and brighter after exfoliation, but overdoing it can result in disrupted skin barrier. The following ingredient is doing the exfoliating job in this product: lactic acid.
