"Matcha + Chia Cleansing Cream"
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 (carbomer, cetearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate se, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, laureth-1 phosphate, polysorbate 60, sodium lauroyl lactylate, 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.

However, in many cosmetic formulations, it is used in a concentration that is too low to have the full effect
