Why is the cotton yellow at the top of my 25mg CBD softgels?

The yellow you’re experiencing is normal and is not from ruptured or damaged capsules. It’s curcumin, a natural colorant, that is added to this product to differentiate the capsules from 10mg CBD softgels. (Curcumin also adds minor health benefits.) Sometimes, the curcumin leaves a residue on the outside of the capsules that can discolor the cotton at the top of the bottle (or get on your fingers).
