Stability Test Discoloration
I have a moisturizer that goes from a pure white to an off white with a slight greenish/yellow tone to it after just 1 month.
I plan on making several individual batches to test and isolate what the problem maker is, but I am hoping someone here may have an idea which ingredient is the culprit, so that I can figure this out sooner and with way less hours spent.
Borage and Tocopherol are really the only items that have a non clear/white color and i’m also curious if centella acts liike green tea extract in some capacity and discolors over time, but all those ingredients are in such small amounts.
What do you think it may be?
Thanks for the help!
