"Ultra Facial Cream & Cleanser Duo"
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 (bis-peg-18 methyl ether dimethyl silane, carbomer, cetyl alcohol, cocamidopropyl betaine, decyl glucoside, disodium cocoamphodiacetate, glyceryl stearate, hexylene glycol, laureth-2, lauryl glucoside, myristic acid, palmitic acid, peg-200 hydrogenated glyceryl palmate, peg-7 glyceryl cocoate, peg-8 stearate, sodium laureth sulfate, stearyl alcohol, sucrose stearate, triethanolamine, 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.

Even though this formulation is mild, the following cleansing agents could trigger an irritation or allergy for some people: cocamidopropyl betaine, decyl glucoside, peg-7 glyceryl cocoate, sodium laureth sulfate
