"Goat Milk Moisturizing Cleanser by Kate Somerville"
From product name
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (cetearyl alcohol, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, glyceryl stearate, polyglyceryl-3 methylglucose distearate, sodium cocoyl isethionate, sodium lauroyl glutamate, 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.
