Cleanser turned BRIGHT PINK! Why?
We’ve been producing a cleansing facial cream for several years. On two separate occasions, this typically white cream has turned bright pink! See photo at this link -
The ingredients are as follows -
- Helianthus Annuss (Sunflower) Oil
- Decyl Polyglucoside,
- Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate (Olivem 1000)
- Lemongrass Essential Oil
- Orange Essential oil
- Grapefruit Essential Oil
- Lime Essential Oil
- Leuconostoc/Aloe Barbadensis Leaf/Sorbus Aucuparia Fruit Ferment Filtrate (Preservative)
After the most recent - surprise pink batch, we initially assumed it was the pink grapefruit essential oil, so we made a second batch using a white grapefruit oil. Same thing. So it has to be one of the other essential oils.
We have thousands of bottles that we don’t wish to see go to waste. It would be fantastic if I could offer a scientific explanation to our clients - as to why this has occurred. It doesn’t happen every time!
