Direct pour stick formula cracking

Hello, I am formulating a facial serum stick that is packaged in a twist up, plastic, round, deodorant-style stick component. The component and formula are meant to be direct-pour, but in a lot of the units that I am pouring, the product looks cracked through the clear inner cap. Is this a pouring temperature issue? I know the wax is on the lower side, but the formula feels great so I would like to keep it as close as possible, and not sure that this would cause the issue of it cracking during cool down? My formula is below.
