"Active Cleanser Q+SOD fx210"
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 (ceteareth-33, cetearyl alcohol, cocamidopropylamine oxide, coco-glucoside, coconut alcohol, di-ppg-2 myreth-10 adipate, glycol palmitate, palmitic acid, peg-120 methyl glucose dioleate, peg-6 caprylic/capric glycerides, sodium c14-16 olefin sulfonate, sodium lauroyl oat amino acids, xanthan gum) 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-glucoside, sodium c14-16 olefin sulfonate
