What does the product description say?
"6 Detox Shower Gel ; a certified organic hair and body wash for men that cleanses, nourishes and detoxifies from top to toe."
WIMJ summary for cleansing

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (cocamidopropyl betaine, decyl glucoside, sodium coco-sulfate) 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: cocamidopropyl betaine, decyl glucoside

"The stimulating shower gel delivers a gentle chemical exfoliation with Pineapple fruit acids to remove dead skin, impurities and toxin from skin and hair without stripping essential oils or causing dryness."
WIMJ summary for exfoliation

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.
