Liposomes the novel drug delivery system which was firstly introduced by Bangham et al in 1961. Liposomes are a very stable system that are made from phospholipids and cholesterol molecules entrapping the drug in between and forms a bilayer system. This drug delivery system aims to deliver the drug directly at the site of action and provides a controlled and sustainable release. The liposomal formulation has an excellent property to entrap both hydrophilic as well as hydrophobic drugs. Due to these excellent characteristics liposomes finds applications in tumour targetting, genetic transfer, immunomodulator, topical, cosmetics, in vaccine delivery as well as in industries. This review aims to outline the distinct features of the liposomal formulation, their updated method of preparation, and various aspects of liposomal drug delivery systems.
