Bitrex — is very bitter substance. To date, no more bitter substance has been found in the world. Its main function is to make it difficult for technical alcohols to enter the human body. When you dilute one kilogram of bitrex with a tank of alcohol in the mixture, you still feel a bitter taste. As a result, the resulting denaturation becomes completely unusable. When bitrex is added to perfumes or household chemicals, the risk of alcohol poisoning is drastically reduced.
The synthetic bitter substance denatonium is used as a "repellent agent" to prevent accidental internal use of toxic substances, for example, by children or animals. Bitrex also prevents the use of harmful alcohols, such as methyl alcohol and ethylene glycol. Due to its overwhelming bitter taste, it is ideal for preventing accidental poisoning. It is also added by major manufacturers to creams, face masks, foams, shampoos.
