What is Voligel®?
Voligel® gel is a combination of three different components namely Diclofenac, Methyl salicylate, and Menthol.
Diclofenac Diethylamine is systemically absorbed through the skin; it inhibits the enzyme cyclo-oxygenase, thus reducing the formation of PGE2. Moreover, it also increases the uptake of arachidonic acid into the cellular pool. Menthol is a vasodilator. It dilates the blood vessels, produces a feeling of coolness and produces analgesia.
