It is extensively used for edible purposes, for instance, as cooking oil in stir-frying, deep-frying, grilling, baking and for salad dressing. In addition, the moisturizing and anti-dandruff properties of canola oil make it effective against hair fall, wrinkles, acne, blemishes, fine lines, etc. Therefore, it is used in the manufacturing of numerous cosmetic products which include lipsticks, lip gloss, creams, massage oils, soaps, shampoos and conditioners.
