What mixture is lotion?

A lotion is usually an emulsion - similar to, for example, mayonnaise. An emulsion is made of two liquids that won't normally mix (such as oil and water) and a third chemical is added that enables the other two to join together. This makes a creamy mixture. This third chemical is called an emulsifying agent.In the case of a lotion, the oil is often palm oil and the second is usually just water. Any of a number of different emulsifying agents (such as emulsifying wax for example) are added to join the oil and water. Scents and perhaps also medicines are then added, as needed, to make whatever particular lotion is required.

The solvent, which is the substance present in the greatest amount in the solution, and the solute, the thing(s) dissolved in the solvent, can be in any phase. An emulsion is a colloidal suspension of a liquid in a liquid. Some common examples are mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard. In mayonnaise, egg yolk is usually the emulsifying agent. The emulsifying agent is the thing that allows two things to mix together that normally wouldn't, such as olive oil and vinegar.

What is a liquid spread through another liquid?

It is called an emulsion. The liquids are immiscible (i.e they do not mix), however, an emulsifying agent prevents them from separating on standing. (in simpler terms, if you leave the mixture undisturbed, you will not get two distinct layers like oil on water thanks to the agent) One liquid is called the continuous phase (the background). The other is called the dispersed phase (seen as suspended globules).
