Abstract

The role of nanotechnology in different sectors is increasing and improving day by day. The nanovectors or nanovehicles play a very major role in transporting essential components into the body across barriers, such as skin, intestine, blood-brain barrier, etc., which is a very essential part of pharmacology. Niosomes are one such vehicle of nano size, which can effectively improve the delivering properties of therapeutically and cosmeceutically important compounds. This short review examines different research that has been carried out in the last two decades involving niosomes to improve the bioavailability of pharmaceutically important phytochemical compounds.
