"Stress Detox Enzymatic Cleanser"
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, cetyl alcohol, cocamidopropyl betaine, cocamidopropyl dimethylamine, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, glycol distearate, stearic acid, 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, cocamidopropyl dimethylamine

"Setting your skin on a clearer, calmer course, this helps to address signs of stress from excess oil and blemishes to breakouts thanks to the proprietary Tri-Serene Complex (a cocktail of whole plant extracts with marine micro-algae and wild indigo extract to dial down the give-away signs of stressed skin), alongside resurfacing fruit enzymes (pumpkin and papaya) and mandelic acid (a mild AHA), which brighten and clarify lacklustre skin."
WIMJ summary

This product contains ingredients (cannabidiol - derived from extract or tincture or resin of cannabis, glycolic acid, mandelic acid) that could help reduce blemishes and clogged pores in theory, but there is not enough evidence that they actually work.
