This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (cocamidopropyl betaine, glyceryl stearate, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, hydroxypropylcellulose, lauric acid, myristic acid, peg-100 stearate, sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, stearic acid, stearyl alcohol) and should be able to cleanse the skin gently.
