W/O Lotion or O/W Lotion?

Question by Guest | 24/03/2018 at 10:01

I am totally irritated right now! I cream myself every day and lately, I have always such a oily skin.

Now I have seen that different body lotion have these different letters on their tube or bottle: There is either W/O or sometimes O/W.

What does that actually mean and is there any difference?

I'm assuming that you are using exactly the wrong cream for your skin. The W stands for water, the O stands for oil.

  • O/W Lotion means: oil in water = little oil in a lot of water. Moisturizes the skin.
  • W/O Lotion means: water in oil = a lot of oil in a little water. Fat for dry skin.

In your case, I advise you to use creams on which O/W is specified.
