What does the product description say?
"Aloe helps soothe and hydrate."
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: sodium hyaluronate, trehalose.

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.

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (camellia sinensis leaf extract) 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.

Ingredients by volume

Ingredient Estimated concentration
Plain old water
40% - 60%
Helps create a thicker product consistency
5% - 7.4%
A sugar that attracts water to the upper layer of the skin
3.7% - 5.5%
A plant extract that can help calm down inflammation in skin. Can, however, itself be irritating
3% - 4.5%
2.4% - 3.7%
Can contain potent anti-oxidant compounds (abbreviated ECG, GCG, EGC, and EGCG) that might help protect the skin from free radicals. Can help calm down inflammation and has some anti-bacterial properties. Unfortunately, these antioxidants are unstable and lose their effectiveness very quickly in products. The concentration of the antioxidant compounds in the extract also tends to be low to be effective in topical formulation
2% - 3%
A plant extract that helps attract water to the upper layer of the skin. It might be helpful in neutralizing free radicals in skin, but is less potent than the extract from the seeds
1.6% - 2.4%
1.5% - 2.2%
A plant extract that can help neutralize free radicals in skin. It contains a compound salicin that can theoretically be converted into salicylic acid that, in turn, helps reduce inflammation in skin, but the evidence of effectiveness in skin is lacking and the extract is usually not used in a concentration that would enable an exfoliating effect
0.95% - 1.4%
Used as a fragrance. Might have some anti-oxidant and anti-microbial properties
0.9% - 1.35%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Attracts water into the upper layer of the skin
0.55% - 1.35%
A preservative
0.5% - 1.1%
A preservative
0.45% - 1.1%
Maintains the texture of skincare products. Allows the product to spread evenly. Helps oil and water mix together
0.4% - 0.95%
Helps create a thicker or gel-like product texture. It is not a surfactant but can be used in gentle cleansing formulations
0.35% - 0.8%
Stabilizes the product formulation
0.2% - 0.75%
Used to create a nice product texture and help delivery of other ingredients. Might be somewhat helpful in attracting water to the upper layer of the skin
0.15% - 0.65%
A silicone that helps to reduce water loss from the surface of the skin. Can temporarily "fill in" lines and wrinkles, absorb oil, and create a nice product finish
0.15% - 0.65%
Helps adjust pH in products
0.1% - 0.4%
Produces temporary toning effect. Can help dissolve other ingredients or preserve products
0.1% - 0.35%
