What is Voltaren Emulgel?
Voltaren Emulgel is a medicated treatment containing a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. The active ingredient (diclofenac) penetrates the skin to provide relief of pain and inflammation. It works differently from heat or cooling rubs, which contain ingredients that stimulate nerves in the skin, to provide a sensation of heating or cooling.
Voltaren Emulgel is non-greasy, with no strong odour.
What does Emulgel mean?
Emulgel is a technology designed for Voltaren Emulgel formulation. It helps the gel to penetrate deeply into the skin. In addition, the Emulgel technology uses a unique combination of a gel and cream to provide both a cooling and soothing effect when applied to the skin.
