Liposomes and niosomes, two vesicular carriers that are prospective candidates for drug delivery, have been used in numerous formulations. New research in this area has led to the development of a ‘niosome-like’ colloidal carrier termed bilosomes. Bilosomes have been designed as prospective vesicular carriers to deliver targeted drugs via parenteral, transdermal, and oral routes.

These innovative vesicular systems, based on bile salts, have been discussed in detail in the current review. The review addresses the composition of bilosomes, their creation and characterization processes. Previous research on bilosomes has been compiled, along with their applications and advantages over more traditional nanocarriers such as liposomes and niosomes. It also emphasizes the utilization of bilosomes and their stability.

Keywords: Bilosomes, bile salts, in-vitro characterization, stability, cytotoxic effect, lipid composition.
