This study consists in the analysis of the marketing and sales potential for the commercialization of the so called green cosmetics coming from moringa oil. Up to now, several industries have taken profit from moringa, which can be consumed almost completely, producing different waste at the end of their procedures. For this reason, this study intends to propose alternative disposals of these waste produced during the processing of the moringa tree, using this subproduct as raw material for the production of green cosmetics, in order to reduce the environmental impact associated to this activity and its resource and energy consumption. • First of all, this study includes a research of the state of the art for the collecting of moringa oil. • Subsequently, a description of alternative waste disposal as part of a green cosmetic supply chain is performed. • Afterwards, the environmental impact reduction is evaluated by means of the carbon footprint. • Finally, it is studied the feasibility and affordability for the commercialization of moringa cosmetics.
