What does the product description say?
"A unique complex of fermented ingredients promotes a radiant complexion, while gentle micelles work to lift away dirt and impurities without the need for rinsing."
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 lecithin, peg-6 caprylic/capric glycerides, polysorbate 20, xanthan gum) 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.
