Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is a phenol-derivative with antioxidant properties. It is a common synthetic compound that is used as a preservative in cosmetic formulations to stabilize the formulation and prevent its oxidation. It maintains the properties of a formulation like color, odor, and texture, which may change upon exposure to air.
BHT is mainly used as an antioxidant to prevent the spoilage of cosmetic formulations, particularly those that contain oil or fats in a water base. It is used in various cosmetic products that are aqueous in nature and contain active ingredients or plant extracts. It resists high temperatures and stabilizes the raw materials themselves and is also used in the manufacturing process of raw materials. It is often used at concentrations ranging from 0.0001% to 0.5%.
BHT is used in various cosmetic products, including certain formulas containing fats or in aqueous emulsions containing certain active ingredients or plant extracts. It is an antioxidant used in certain products to stabilise and protect the raw materials themselves, and less as an ingredient in and of itself. It can resist high temperatures (unlike some natural antioxidants): it is therefore very useful in certain raw material manufacturing processes. We only use it as an ingredient for its antioxidant properties, helping to protect the products of oxidation and ensure the quality and stability of formulas.
