PromiseWhat does the product description say?
This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (cocamidopropyl betaine, disodium cocoyl glutamate, hexylene glycol, sodium cocoyl glutamate, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, sucrose distearate, sucrose stearate, xanthan gum, yucca schidigera leaf/root/stem extract) 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: cocamidopropyl betaine, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate
