What is the difference between a lotion, a cream, and a balm?
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 balm has a denser consistency and is designed to hydrate the skin. A balm helps to repair, protect and nourish the skin such as hands, joint areas and feet. Happy Cow Moisturizing Udder Balm has vitamins A, D and E, Aloe Vera Gel and Lanolin to nourish, protect, and repair your 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 lotion has the lightest consistency of the three and designed mainly for light weight topical moisturizing. Generally, a lotion will moisturize skin for a brief period of time and does not contain agents to treat and repair skin.
