What does the product description say?
"A deep acting cleanser with a combination of Glycolic and Salicylic Acids penetrates deep into pores to rid them of clogging debris along with dead surface skin cells."
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (cetearyl alcohol, peg-7 glyceryl cocoate, polysorbate 20, triethanolamine) 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: peg-7 glyceryl cocoate
