I don’t know about pink ivory but lots of wood change color from UV exposure. You could do a quick test by setting a small piece of scrap in the sun for a couple of days with something opaque covering half of the wood. If the covered side stays the original color and the exposed side changes then its a pretty good bet that it’s the UV light thats causing the color change. Use a coating with lots of UV protection. The only thing I know off the top of my head with excelet UV protection is marine (spar) varnish.
