"Coconut Oil Formula Coconut Monoi Cleansing Balm"
From product name
WIMJ summary for cleansing

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (glyceryl behenate, glyceryl stearate, hydrogenated lecithin, peg-40 hydrogenated castor oil, polysorbate 85, sorbitan trioleate) 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.
