In brief: Water
Most creams are combinations of lanolin and oils admixed with water. They are designed to hold water next to the skin and allow it to integrate with the outer layer to hydrate it and smooth it.
This is such a desirable feature that a huge amount of money can be spent on products that claim this. You might look at the consumer reports website for their recommendations.
