I am just wondering if anyone has had any success incorporating Lemongrass essential oil into a body wash. I have a customer who wants this but my attempt to add it to our body wash formula has been unsuccessful with the essential oil oxidising and going yellow in a very short time.
I have spoken to my fragrance supplier and he thinks that it will be difficult to stop the oxidation even if I add an anti-oxidant like BHT.
Unfortunately I cannot change the body wash formula.
There are body wash products on the market with Lemongrass but the majority seem to be a blend with other essential oils.
Any thoughts or experiences that anyone would be willing to share would be most appreciated.
