BHT is slightly soluble in water and quite soluble in organic oils and solvents. BHT is not flammable but will burn. It is stable under recommended storage conditions. BHT dust is explosive Environmental Concerns/ Toxicity BHT has a low acute aquatic toxicity and is only slightly soluble in water. BHT is not readily degradable in the environment and may bio- accumulate in aquatic organisms, so care must be taken to prevent it from entering surface or ground waters. BHT should be disposed of in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local regulations as a non-hazardous waste. Butylated Hydroxtoluene BHT What is it? BHT (Butylated Hydroxtoluene) is a white to yellowish-white, crystalline solid. BHT:genetic code C 15 H 24 O Impact of The Chemical on Both Land and
Water on Local and Global Scales BHT is directly incorporated into products at low levels and does not readily leach or evaporate from preserved materials. Therefore, BHT once incorporated into products essentially has no environmental impact beyond those posed by the products themselves. What We Think We think that the product could be continued to be used in cosmetics, as long as people knew about the safety precautions, because it has positive effects for the cosmetics and little to no environmental effects.
