The aim of this study was the design of some topical drug systems such as hydrogels incorporating ibuprofen as a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug, having improved drug release characteristics and adequate rheological profiles, allowing a suitable spreading at the cutaneous administration of these formulations. The ibuprofen release profiles were obtained and analysed for the designed hydrogels, compared with the commercial Ibuprofen 5% (w/w) from Urgo. The kinetic experiments recommended the hydrogel containing the same weight of drug (ibuprofen 5% w/w) with the ingredients hydroxyethyl cellulose and glycerol, with a superior value for the diffusion coefficient and drug percentage released. The rheological studies confirmed the influence of formulation characteristics upon the primary biopharmaceutical profiles for the tested ibuprofen hydrogels.
