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 (coco-glucoside, glyceryl oleate, glycol distearate, magnesium laureth sulfate, magnesium laureth-8 sulfate, magnesium oleth sulfate, peg-120 methyl glucose dioleate, peg-80 glyceryl cocoate, sodium cocoamphoacetate, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium laureth-8 sulfate, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, sodium oleth sulfate) 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, glyceryl oleate, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate
