"Clear Improvement Zero Oil Cleanser With Charcoal"
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 (cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, coco-betaine, disodium cocoyl glutamate, polysorbate 20, sodium cocoyl glutamate, sodium cocoyl isethionate, sodium lauroyl oat amino acids) 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: coco-betaine
