Osmotic pressure is generated by active material in itself or induced with the help of osmogen.
Forward osmosis or 'manipulated osmosis' or just 'osmosis' are terms used to describe a natural phenomenon, whereby a solvent flows from a region of lower osmotic pressure across a selectively permeable membrane to an area of higher osmotic pressure.
