Bigel: An opportunity for topical applications
Author(s): Shaikh Iqra, Dr. Jigar Vyas and Dr. Umesh Upadhyay
Abstract: Bigels, which combine organogel and hydrogel, are unique solid-like formulations with enhanced qualities for usage in food, cosmetics, and medicinal applications. Bigel is superior to either individual gel and benefits from both the aqueous and oily phases. Bigels are unique because they can transport active ingredients that are both hydrophilic and lipophilic, improve stratum corneum hydration, are easily spreadable, etc. The primary objectives of this review article are to provide readers with a thorough understanding of how bigels are classified according to their morphology and synthesis process as well as to demonstrate how bigels are completely assessed by taking into account numerous characterisation methods. Information on the usage of bigels as transdermal medicine delivery devices is also highlighted heavily.
