"Kissimmee Vitamin F Cleansing Balm"
From product name
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 (linoleic acid, linolenic acid, sodium stearoyl lactylate, sorbitan oleate, sucrose laurate) 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.
