What does the product description say?
"Calm and balance the complexion with the Kerstin Florian Clarifying Lavender Oil ; a nourishing facial oil that hydrates, conditions and protects the complexion."
WIMJ summary for moisturizing

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: simmondsia chinensis seed oil, argania spinosa kernel oil.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).
