Lotions, creams and balms all have one common goal, to hydrate, treat and repair dry skin. However, the difference between these three products is the consistency, thickness and the depth of moisturizing and repair.
A lotion has the lightest consistency of the three and is designed mainly for light-weight topical moisturizing. Generally, lotion will moisturize skin for a brief period of time and does not contain agents to treat and repair skin.
A cream has mid to light consistency that is usually used on the face area. Generally, a cream is formulated for the face with additional anti-aging and treatment ingredients added to achieve a desired skin outcome.
A balm has a denser consistency and is designed not only to hydrate the skin but to also treat and repair dry skin such as hands, joint areas and feet. A balm helps to repair, protect and nourish the skin.
Sandahl Mfg. Chemists`Happy Cow Moisturizing Udder Balm has Vitamins A, D & E, Aloe Vera Gel and Lanolin to help support, nourish, protect and repair your skin.
