What does the product description say?
"A gentle, ultra-foaming black cleansing bar that removes impurities, excess sebum and dead cells to reveal refined skin with improved clarity and smoother texture."
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (behenic acid, lauric acid, myristic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid) 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.

What does the product description say?
"Creamy lather helps to remove dead cells."
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.
