Naturally occurring organic compounds such as lipids and alkaloids have great potential not only in therapeutic applications, but also in others such as cosmetics. These natural compounds can be used as native compounds or their properties can be modified and fine-tuned for different applications. Alkaloids and lipids are suitable candidates for therapeutic and cosmetic applications. Lipid-derived amphiphiles have great ability to self-assemble in nanostructures. The inherent hydrophobic nature of lipids makes them ideal for encapsulation of therapeutics, including alkaloids, and they are released in a controlled fashion at the desired site. This Special Issue focuses on the use of alkaloids and lipids in therapeutic and cosmetic applications.Prof. Dr. Aman Ullah
