This invention refers to a fibrous support material from oil plants (Silybum Marianum L., Helianthus Annuus L., Linum usitatissimum L., Carthamus tinctorius (Mohler, Roth, Schmidt & Boudreaux, 1967), enriched with biologically active compounds obtained from waste extracts of Origanum vulgare L. from aqueous extractions, from different industries or research activities, in order to increase its antioxidant activity and the method of obtaining it. The proposed solution uses cheap materials that result as residues from different industries (food, pharmaceutical, etc.), does not require toxic and/or dangerous substances and solvents, and has no negative action on the environment and human health.
