What does the product description say?
"Works by finding single sulfur hydrogen bonds and crosslinking them back together to form disulfide bonds; disulfide bonds are broken via chemical, thermal, and mechanical processes including brushing and combing the hair; gives hair superior strength by repairing broken disulfide bonds; and anti-breakage properties."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.

"OLAPLEX No 7 Bonding Oil Ultra-nourishing yet completely weightless, the innovative No."
WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: dimethicone, helianthus annuus seed oil.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).
