- Penetrating pain and inflammation relief
- For rheumatic & joint pain
- Muscular sprains, strains and bruises
Unlike tablets that go through the stomach, Voltarol Emulgel Extra Strength 2% w/w Gel concentrates relief deep in the joint to fight pain and inflammation all day long.
The Emulgel technology used in this product helps the gel to penetrate deeply into the skin to enhance delivery of the active ingredient, diclofenac, to the site of pain and swelling. In addition, the Emulgel technology is a unique combination of a gel and cream providing both a cooling and soothing effect when applied to the skin. The massaging effect of applying the Emulgel can provide additional soothing benefits at the site of pain and inflammation.
