What does the product description say?
"Sea buckthorn berry and seed oil is packed with essential fatty acids that replenish vital moisture, while pro-vitamin A and vitamin E soften and protect from sun damage."
WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: hippophae rhamnoides oil, sesamum indicum seed oil.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).
