hydrophobic- that is why oil and water don't mix.

Things that like water are hydrophilic, things that hate water are hydrophobic. Water and oil will not mix, they hate each other so oil is hydrophobic.

Hydrophilic means water-loving. Hydrophobic means water-hating. As examples salts are all hydrophilic. Oils, such as soybean oil etc are hydrophobic.

No! Hydrophilic means it is water soluable. Oil (fat) is not soluable in water, so is hydrophobic.

They are both hydrophobic and hydrophilic
