Lotions are applied to external skin to simply smooth, re-hydrate, and soften the body’s skin. Emollients and moisturizers work by forming an oily layer on the top of the skin that traps water in the skin. Petroleum, lanolin, mineral oil and dimethicone are common emollients. Humectants, including glycerin, lecithin, and propylene glycol, draw water into the outer layer of skin.
