Trending Question: The Difference Between Cream, Lotion and Balm
Author: Wholesale Supplies Plus
Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Question: What is the difference between a cream, lotion and balm? When might I use each?

Answer: Body lotions and creams are both used to help provide moisture to dry skin by formulating a mixture of oil and water. Creams are thicker and contain more than 50% oil. Creams are packaged in jars because of their thickness. Lotions are thinner and contain more than 50% water. They are typically packaged in bottles. Balms do not contain any water and are the best for protecting skin. They are also the easiest to preserve because they do not contain water. The Cleveland Clinic recommends using lighter coverage body lotions during the summer and heavier body creams during the winter when humidity is lower and moisture is depleted from the skin.
