Abstract

Emulgel is an emerging topical drug formulation which is becoming increasingly popular due to its advantages over the conventional topical preparations. The emulgel is a combination of an emulsion and a gel and thus has a dual release control system. Its biggest and most favorable advantage has been the ability to incorporate hydrophobic drugs, thus making it emerge as a more popular choice these days. The emulgel is also greaseless, transparent; it can be easily spread and removed, has a long shelf- life, is thixotropic and is also pleasant looking. The emulgel is turning out be a preferred choice for cosmetic and dermatological preparations and its use and application will accelerate in the coming future.


 

Keywords: Emulgels, hydrophobic drugs, topical drug delivery.
