Aim: The main aim of this present article on emulgels is to compile the recent literatures with special focus on topical delivery of novel emulgels. Back ground: Topical drug delivery system is defined as a direct effect of drug containing medication to the skin to get the effect of drug or to cure disorders. Major disadvantage of conventional gel is that the delivery of hydrophobic drug. This can be overcome by emulgel. Emulgel systems are now a day’s mostly depends on the pharmaceutical scientists due to their substantial potential and act as drug delivery vehicle by adding a broad range of drug molecules. Results: Emulgels are mostly used for the delivery of analgesics, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-acne drugs and various cosmetic formulations. So to know the potential of emulgel as delivery vehicles, this review gives summary of the ideal properties, formulation and characterization of emulgel.
