Discoloration of body cream due to fragrance?
I am selling these creams with different scent at craft shows and i find out one of them discolor after a few weeks of making them. The fragrance is apple sage from brambleberry and it does not have vanilin. The color of the fragrance is slight yellow, but not this yellow and it blends well when i make them and at least for the first few weeks. For bigger jar, you will see the yellow color is specifically on the top, not the bottom in a clear glass jar. I thought i used sodium phytate as a chelating agent might help but it doesn’t…
The texture and the smell doesn’t change, in fact customer didn’t notice but it is bothering me.
Please help me, what else i can use the stabalize the color? Is it of UV light due to clear jars?
Here is my ingredients list:
Aqua, kokum butter, calendula, chamomile, bamboo extract, safflower oil, apricot
kernel oil, emulsified wax, glycerin, dl-panthenol, vitamin e,
essential oil, jojoba oil, hydroxyethylcellulose, Phenoxyethano, Ethylhexylglycerin, sodium phytate, citric acid (PH adjustment), fragrance
