Petitioning Bath and Body Works

Stop using bht in your products


I have been a fan of Bath and Body Works for many years.  I have always loved their perfumes, lotions, candles and especially their lip glosses.  I was very disappointed to find that they use the preservative BHT in many of their products.  BHT to state it simply, is very bad for your body.  BHT is known to cause liver and kidney problems, along with infertility, weakened immune system, behavior changes, cancer, depletes Vitamin D, raises Cholesterol levels and is linked to birth defects.  Basically this additive is a poison to your system.  There are other safer products that could be used instead of BHT.  Other countries (Romania, Australia and Sweden) have banned the use of BHT.  I believe it is time our country does the same.  

Letter to
Bath and Body Works
Please stop using BHT in your products. This preservative is bad for your health and your products would be better without it.
