So that kids, can be kids.

Bitrex is the world’s most bitter substance! For more than 60 years we have been helping make products safer and protecting children from accidental poisoning.

Making products safer for 60 years

We pioneered this safety additive and work with manufacturers and retailers globally to make their products taste disgusting. This means that if curious children get into something that they shouldn’t, they are likely to spit it out immediately, helping preventing accidents.

As the world faces evolving challenges of smaller and more concentrated products, the role of Bitrex has become even more critical to help keep children safe.

When you welcome a new member to the family, feelings and emotions can overwhelm you. During Mental Health Week it’s important to talk about postpartum depression and the steps you can take to find support.

Some ways to support yourself when going through postpartum depression:
Chat to your family about care and support at home.
Consider speaking to a therapist.
You can ask your doctor about medication.
Find people with similar experiences who understand what you’re going through.
And remember to be kind to yourself.

How did Bitrex get started?

We were created in Edinburgh by pharmaceutical company Macfarlan Smith. And, like many great inventions, Bitrex was discovered by accident as scientists worked on a new local anaesthetic! We quickly discovered the importance of the amazing chemical we had created, a patent was registered, and the brand Bitrex was born!
