Brown RS et al
- Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is used in toothpastes and shampoos as a lathering agent
- It also helps to remove plaque in toothpaste.
- 3 cases where SLS was associated with sore anterior tongue
Comment – it’s the number one ingredient in my shampoo. Subject with sore tongue are best to avoid toothpaste where it is listed or brush with baking soda until better and then retry it.
