Consumer concerns and what we know

BHA is associated with reproductive dysfunction, increased cancer risk – including breast and prostate – and a range of other chronic or irreversible health problems.
The European Commission included BHA in an endocrine disruptor priority list to gain more scientific data for future assessment.
It is listed as a known carcinogen under California's Proposition 65.

Our stance

We do not use BHA due to our safety criteria.
