Water-in-oil emulsions are made with more oil-soluble emulsifiers (HLB 4 - 6). They supply a rich layer of emollients and moisturizing agents to the skin and are thus ideal for dry skin. Also, W/O emulsions are the optimal base for oil-soluble active ingredients (e.g. certain sunscreens). Famous W/O creams are the Pond‘s Cold Cream (named „cold“ as it leaves a cooling feel on the skin) and the Nivea Cream.
