ABSTRACT

Herbal molecules are known for their potent action and fewer side
effects but they have draw backs like low bioavailability, High
molecular weight, Low lipophilicity etc. To overcome such drawbacks
novel drug delivery systems are employed. One of such an approach is
Emulgel. Gel formulations commonly offer faster drug release than
conventional ointments and creams. Major limitation of gel is in the
difficulty of hydrophobic drugs delivery. So to solve these limitations,
emulgels formulations are considered. Combination of gels and
emulsions dosage forms is called as Emulgels. Recently, Emulgels is
used for topical drug delivery systems. The use of emulgels includes
analgesics and antifungal drugs. This review article is focused on
herbal formulation, emulgel containing essential oils and herbal drugs.
In fact presence of a gelling agent in water phase converts a classical emulsion in to emulgel.
The emulgel for dermatological use has several favorable properties such as being
thixotropic, greaseless, easily spreadable, easily removable, emollient, non-staining, watersoluble,
longer shelf life, bio-friendly, transparent & pleasing appearance.

Keywords: Emulgels, topical delivery, Herbal drugs, penetration enhancers.
