The goal of the study was to create an emulgel utilising a gelling ingredient. The phrase "emulgel" refers to a mixture of gel and emulsion. Emulgel is a promising hydrophobic drug delivery method. The emulsion was made and then added to the gel base. Rheological tests, spreading coefficient tests, bioadhesion strength tests, skin irritation tests, in vitro release tests, ex vivo release tests, anti-inflammatory activity tests, and analgesic activity tests were all performed on the formulations. As a result, it may be stated that topical emulgel has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.
