De-colorization of the Bandit's body

So I have been using the TT Bandit for almost a year and it has been in the snow, water, pretty much everything it is supposed to. No complaints about that. Yet I am seeing a strong decolorization of the body of the Bandit, especially the controle-part on top. I tried cleaning it off but it's the actual plastic that is turning slightly yellow-ish. It feels a bit brittle or something.

FYI: I store the bandit in the bags that came with my bundle.

I added some pictures on a white surface to show the decolorization.

What is causing this and is it irreversable?

    Mine is the same and it lives on my helmet, sometimes on a tripod. I keep it on my desk beside me or in a decent bag.

    Mine is also getting dirty as well. I cleaned it a while back and made it look pretty new again. I used a mild general cleaner and a cloth.

    I will try and clean it a little with a cloth. I'm still a bit disappointed about the current state it is in though.

    It is odd as the plastic on the battery and the lens cover has not de-colorazised
