in that is preferable to because here because we are talking about a specific reason.

D looks more concise than E.

My pick is D in this case.

Here is excerpts from the anandnk sticky post in this forum:

in that vs because - in that is used to talk about some aspects, and because is used to talk about all aspects
Example :
Going to Ivy league college is very stressfull because it includes huge expenses.
means
Going to Ivy league college is very stressfull in all aspects

Going to Ivy league college is very stressfull in that it includes huge expenses.
means
Going to Ivy league college is very stressfull from economic point of view.

is here referring to composition IMO.

We should repeat "tissues" for emphasis. Eliminate A, B and D.

E is better than D.

I pick E.
