How did we get here?
With over 50 years of experience, we have a unique understanding of acute pain and how it affects every person differently. Constantly in search of solutions that are best adapted for the vast range of acute pain relief needs, we have developed a range of gels that are available in several different sizes.
Originally, Voltaren Emulgel was developed as a pain relief gel with unique emulgel product characteristics that can be applied to an injured area.
We are proud to be part of GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Health, the largest consumer health company in the world2, to better enable people to do more, feel better and live longer.
We work with pain specialists to develop science-led pain relief solutions for you. We don’t just relieve acute pain with our Voltaren products, we innovate solutions that fit ...seamlessly into your life, so you don’t have to give pain a second thought.
The GSK Global Pain Index is an in-depth global study into physical pain and its impact on people’s lives. The results suggest that pain remains a problem for over 92% of adults worldwide – with 86% experiencing body pain. Our desire is to help our consumers and for these numbers to go down.
We know that pain is so much more than a physical sensation. It is emotional, mental, and touches so many aspects of our lives. Our approach to creating content for you rests on this knowledge. We address your holistic approach to health when it comes to pain management – how you eat, how you sleep, how you move, how you speak to your doctor – all on top of our range of products to target your pain.
How does Voltaren work?
Voltaren, available over-the-counter, contains a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) ingredient called diclofenac diethylamine. Diclofenac diethylamine works to inhibit prostaglandin production in the body that cause pain. By reducing their effects, diclofenac diethylamine helps to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.1

Restoring the joy of movement defines who we are, what we do, and everything we strive to achieve.
Voltaren knows that movement is never just about movement. It’s goes much deeper than that. It’s the way we stay connected to our world – and those in it.
When we move, we connect on a deeper level with those around us. But when we feel pain, our movements change, and we can’t help but pull back from our world and our friends. Voltaren helps... to take away your acute pain due to muscle and& joint injury, so you are able to connect with others again.
We strive to get you on the path towards movement that brings you the joy of genuine connection. And every single movement has a different meaning to different people. Because movement is never just about movement.
It’s that hug that means “I’ve missed you.”
That lift of a child that makes them giggle.
That kick of the ball that means “I’m still one of the team.”
Because it’s not just movement, it’s the joy of movement.
We aim to make your life better with our science, and a whole lot of caring, because we recognize that pain is not just physical. It is emotional and mental as well. We strive to be your trusted, go-to resource for muscle and joint pain due to an injury – whether it’s tips for how to get a good night’s sleep, how to talk to your doctor, how often to reapply Voltaren, or even how to stretch out your back and keep moving!
