What does the product description say?
"Pinot Noir grape seed extract – rich in natural procyanidins and known for its ability to protect against free radicals and oxidative stress; Rhodophyceae – a bio-algal and a natural bio extender that can prevent hair damage; Aloe Vera – rich in amino acids, primarily alanine which has a moisturising effect on hair; Noir selected proteins from silk and wheat – for volume and smoothness."
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: glycerin, hydrolyzed silk.

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, cetearyl alcohol.
