The science behind Voltaren


Targeting pain with the potent anti-inflammatory effects of diclofenac1

Diclofenac reduces inflammation by inhibiting prostaglandin biosynthesis through action on the cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes. Diclofenac exerts its therapeutic effects primarily through inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis by COX-2. It also reduces the production of leukotrienes by inhibiting phospholipase A2 activity.3,5

Diclofenac not only provides pain relief but also treats inflammation – a root cause of pain.3

Targets Pain Directly at the Site

The Voltaren Emulgel formulation is an emulgel, a non-greasy formulation that combines a gel and cream for topical application. It is specially designed to penetrate deep through the skin at the site of pain to deliver muscular pain relief.
