The Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) has realized a rigorous study related to potential endocrine disrupting properties of BHT.

The conclusions have been published the last 27 of September 2021 in the Opinion on BHT.

The SCCS consider BHT safe in cosmetics products in the following scenarios:

→ BHT is safe as an ingredient up to a maximum concentration of:
      · 0.001% in mouthwash
      · 0.1% in toothpaste.

→ BHT is safe as an ingredient up to a maximum concentration of 0.8 % in other:
      · Leave-on products.
      · Rinse-off products.

→ BHT is safe as for a combined use of:
      · Mouthwash at a concentration of 0.001%,
      · Toothpaste at a concentration of 0.1% and
      · Other leave-on products and rinse-off products at a concentration of 0.8%.

→ The SCCS mandates do not address environmental aspects. Therefore, this assessment did not cover the safety of BHT for the environment.
