A unique aspect of dermatological Pharmacology is the direct accessibility of the skin as a target organ for diagnosis and treatment. Within the major group of semisolid preparations, the use of transparent gels has expanded both in cosmetics and in Pharmaceutical preparations. In spite of many advantages of gels a major limitation is in the delivery of hydrophobic drugs. Emulgel is one such topical drug delivery system that incorporates properties of both gel and emulsion and shows dual release control system by which a hydrophobic moiety can easily deliver through the gel base. Due to various dermatological advantages offered by the Emulgel formulation it acts as a boon in derma care and cosmetology field as well as in increasing patient compliance.
