The concentration of antioxidants consisting of a complex of tocopherols, triterpenoids, polyprenols, lipophilic acids and other compounds is a good criterion of the quality of the biological value of oils.

Acylsarcosinates are low-toxic, dermatologically mild surfactants and are well biodegradable.
