Most people hate the taste of #orangejuice
after they've brushed their teeth. But what turns the orange juice from a sweet, satisfying drink to disgusting?
When you brush your teeth, the toothpaste becomes foamy. The foam is made by a chemical called sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS). SLS makes your sweet taste buds stop working so well. SLS also destroys fats that block your bitter taste buds. #SLS
hides the sweetness of orange juice and makes it taste bitterer. That's why it tastes horrible after brushing your teeth.
Aquatic toxicity: Aquatic toxicity refers to the short-term adverse effects that result from the exposure of aquatic life to a chemical or formulation. As a raw material, the LC50 for SLS is reported between 1 and 13.9 mg/L after 96 hours, categorizing it as moderately toxic to aquatic life.
A study from the University of Georgia Medicine showed that SLS had the power to permeate the eyes, brain, heart, and liver. SLS is a penetration enhancer, meaning that its molecules are so small they’re able to cross the membranes of your body’s cells. Once cells are compromised, they become more vulnerable to other toxic chemicals that may be with the SLS. .
