An emulsion is a system with a liquid continuous phase and a dispersed phase of liquid droplets. The two types of emulsions which are most common are oil-in-water emulsions and water-in-oil emulsion. In an oil-in-water emulsion, the continuous phase is water and the dispersed phase is oil, while in a water-in-oil emulsion, the continuous phase is oil, while the dispersed phase is water.
