Butylhydroxytoluene (BHT) is an antioxidant for use in cosmetics and fragrance products, such as perfume.


Butylhydroxytoluene (BHT) dissolves in DPG, alcohol, vegetable oil and the like, but not or hardly in water. When used in a product that mainly consists of water, you can first dissolve it in, for example, DPG and then use this mixture. The usual dose is 0.1%, or 1 gram per kilogram.

In perfumes it is best to dissolve the BHT in the mixture of fragrances (concentrate), it usually dissolves better in it than in alcohol. Many fragrances already contain BHT or another antioxidant.

Use it in products that are sensitive to oxygen from the air, such as perfumes, fragrances, creams (in the fat phase) and oily cosmetics.
