In the world, many agro-industrial wastes such as seeds is generated, and these are used in different industrial sectors. In Colombia, these wastes are used in some cities that work in the agribusiness sector to promote their economy, converting this waste to a composting process or animal feed. Córdoba is one of the departments that works mainly in the agricultural sector to boost its economy, its productive experience in fruit crops is based on the biodiversity of crops such as soursop, guava, mango, papaya, passion fruit, pineapple, citrus, medlar, sapote coastal, among others. The main benefit that is given to this production is through exportation and processing to obtain pulps, which are then used to make juices, jams and other products; the waste generated, such as seeds, lack a final disposal that gives them added value in the cosmetic industry, due to the lack of innovation regarding the benefit that can be obtained from this type of waste.
Research work has been carried out in the department regarding the benefit that can be obtained from the plant diversity that it has; but there are very few investigative reports on the use of residues as seeds of the Cordoba fruit agroindustry, which leads us to give a significant theoretical contribution to the community about how to give added value to these wastes, each of its both physical and chemical properties. That is why the interest in the use of agro-industrial waste in Córdoba, raises the compilation of information that leads to understand and value the composition and properties of waste such as seeds of typical fruits of the department, their applications in antioxidant, bactericidal and infectious treatments and potential use as exfoliating particles in the cosmetic industry.
