    On its own, diclofenac does permeate the skin. However, Voltaren Emulgel is specially designed to aid the entry of diclofenac into and transit through the skin. It delivers diclofenac across the skin faster than a diclofenac solution of the same concentration.*1

NNT data for Voltaren Emulgel versus other NSAIDs

The lowest number-needed-to-treat (NNT) vs other topical NSAIDs in acute musculoskeletal pain,2
