Ankita Srivastava*, Hitesh Jain and D. B. Meshram

ABSTRACT

Emulgels is one of the recent technology in novel drug delivery system used topically containing dual release system i.e. gel and emulsion. Main disadvantages of gel is the delivery of hydrophobic drugs and these hydrophobic drugs are not soluble in gel bases and it causes problem during the release of drug. Emulgels helps the hydrophobic drug to incorporate in the oil phase and then oily globules are disperse in the aqueous phase and this results in O/W emulsion which can mix in the gel base. Emulgels found in analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, anti-acne and various cosmetics formulation. Emulgels provide local concentration of drug in the affected area. It is more effective than the regular gels. Emulgels have properties like thixotropic, greaseless, easily spreadable, easily removable, emollient, non-staining, long shelf life and pleasing appearance. The patient adhere to topical formulation is significant in relation to several chronic skin disorders. Thus gel provides faster drug release as compared with other topical drug delivery.
