This paper presents the results of a study of selected physicochemical properties for prototype hair shampoos containing strawberry seed extract obtained under supercritical CO2 conditions. Four formulations were developed and prototypes of hair shampoos were created. It was found that the properties of the shampoos depended on the concentration of the hydrophobic extract used. As a function of the extract concentration, the viscosity of the cosmetic, the foam stability index values and the ability to emulsify fatty soils are lowered.
The introduction of the extract into the cosmetic composition resulted in a reduction in the cosmetic lightness and also in a yellow-green color of the shampoo.
