Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT)

Product Overview: Butylated Hydroxytoluene, commonly known as BHT, is a synthetic antioxidant widely used in various industries to prevent oxidation and prolong shelf life. In cosmetics and personal care products, BHT is valued for its ability to protect formulations from deterioration caused by exposure to air and light, thereby maintaining the integrity and efficacy of active ingredients. It is especially beneficial in products containing oils and fats, where it helps prevent rancidity and color changes.
Manufacturing Process:  The production of BHT involves the chemical synthesis of p-cresol and isobutylene under catalytic conditions. This process results in a crystalline solid that is soluble in organic solvents but sparingly soluble in water, making it suitable for a wide range of cosmetic formulations, from lipsticks to moisturizers.
Family:  As part of the phenolic antioxidant family, BHT is recognized for its effectiveness in inhibiting free radical formation. It is closely related to butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), another commonly used antioxidant, but offers distinct solubility and stability characteristics that make it preferable for certain applications.
Uses: BHT is incorporated into a variety of cosmetic and skincare products, including creams, lotions, lipsticks, sunscreens, and hair care products. Its primary role is to protect these products from oxidative degradation, thus preserving their color, fragrance, and texture, and extending their shelf life.
Production Method and Shelf Life: Produced through a controlled chemical synthesis process, BHT maintains its antioxidant properties for an extended period, with a recommended shelf life of up to 2 years when stored properly in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
International Names: While “Butylated Hydroxytoluene” is the commonly used term, it may also be listed under its abbreviation, BHT, in product formulations and ingredient lists.
