Hence, to overcome this limitation, the emulsion based approach is being used. Emulgel is an interesting topical drug delivery system as it has dual release control system, i.e., gel and emulsion. Due to nongreasy because of the presence of gel phase which favors good patient compliance. In order to understand the potential of emulgel as delivery vehicles, this review gives an overview of the ideal properties, formation, and characterization of emulgels. The use of emulgel based systems as drug delivery vehicles is reviewed, with particular emphasis being placed on recent developments and future directions. The emulgel provide several favourable properties for its dermatological use such as greaseless, thixotropic, easily spreadable, emollient, easily removable, non-staining, water soluble, longer shelf life, transparent, bio-friendly and pleasing appearance.
