BHT antioxidant (Butylated Hydroxytoluene)

Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT) is probably the most efficient anti-oxidant used in perfumery. It is almost odourless in use but as a pure white to off-white crystalline powder has a very faint musty cresylic phenolic odour. Used from 0.1% in citrus oils, aliphatic aldehydes, fixed oils and many other oxygen sensitive materials, compounds and finished products it can greatly extend their shelf and odour life and also slow down, but not completely stop, colour changes.

Important Notes:

End application data applies to experiments carried out by the authors or extrapolated from those experiments using computer algorithms. As application product formulations vary widely this information is only a general guide.

Full testing by both perfumers- flavorists and end users is the only proven method to ensuring a perfume or flavours safety- strength- suitability- stability and success.

Legislation and regulations vary widely and change with time so it is your duty to check this.
