Abstract

For the last few years there has been observed an interest and growing awareness of consumers regarding healthy diet, way of life, and body care. This leads to the design and creation of new products and cosmetic formulations with appropriate sensory characteristics and rheological properties, attractive in terms of nutritional values, and body care. Argan oil contains a high level of both oleic acid and linoleic acid, making it an excellent source of basic polyunsaturated fatty acids. Also, it is particularly rich in polyphenols and tocopherols that exhibit significant antioxidant activity. This paper presents a literature review of the properties of argan oil and their application. Argan oil is used in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries and supports the treatment of many diseases. Practical Applications: This work presents a wide review and discussion of the literature on the issues related to the use of argan oil in cosmetology and cosmetics industry based on its properties. This review work can be helpful for the cosmetics and food industry in creating new cosmetic recipes and food products (e.g., special‐purpose products) using argan oil as a base raw material.
