Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) are similar synthetic antioxidants that are used as preservatives in personal care products and cosmetics. Studies show these chemicals are carcinogenic, endocrine-disruptors, and allergenic. BHA and BHT can be found in personal care products such as lipstick, eye shadow, concealer and moisturizers. In body care products and cosmetics, the primary area of exposure to BHA and BHT is dermal absorption.
