Topical gels are semisolid solutions with a liquid phase contained inside a three-dimensional polymeric matrix composed of gum, which can be synthetic or natural and has a high degree of cross-linking, either chemically or physically. Topical gels' behaviour in the midst of liquid and solid components makes them a great option for a variety of applications. Topical gels have garnered a lot of attention recently since scientists in industry, research and development, education, drug control administration, and professional domains are interested in this issue. The purpose of this page is to go over the classification and preparation methods for topical gels, as well as their most recent advancements. A separate section covers the application of hydrogel in drug delivery systems. Classification, preparation methodology, and assessment criteria receive special attention.
