What does the product description say?
"Created to restore and maintain the perfect balance of essential fatty acids in the hair, this blend of healing botanical oils moisturises and nourishes dry, stressed hair without greasiness or residue."
WIMJ summary

This product can help improve hydration of the skin with the two types of ingredients.

The first type is called “humectants”:
these ingredients help attract water. When humectants are on the surface of the skin, they “pull in” the moisture from the outside environment, or from within deeper layers of the skin. The following ingredients in this product do the job: alanine, glycerin.

This product also contains ingredients called “occlusives”. They help reduce the speed with which our skin loses moisture to the outside environment. These ingredients also help soften the upper layer of the skin, so it feels less tight and nicer to the touch. The following ingredients in this product do the job: dimethicone, astrocaryum murumuru seed butter.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: urea

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (cereus grandiflorus flower extract, creatine) that might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin to lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun). There is not enough evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin though.
