Hydrophobic

Hydrophobic substances, such as fats, wax, and oils, lack a strong affinity for water and are therefore water repelling.  These substances will not combine with water thus incapable of dissolving. These molecules are non-polar and tend to clump together. This allows the hydrophobic substances to have minimal contact with water because they do not mix or separate into the water.
