Dr. Moran's DMSO
Our DMSO, or dimethyl sulfoxide by Dr. Moran’s has pharmaceutical grade 99.9% purity according to the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.). It’s independently tested by third-party laboratories to ensure our high quality standards.
Where is our DMSO made?
Our DMSO products are made in Germany from local raw materials. In this way we offer the maximum product safety. We ensure our products meet UK/EU legislation to maintain high safety standards.
All our products are bottled in amber glass medical bottles to prevent damage from sunlight and are solvent safe. For absolute security, the lid is protected against detachment and diffusion of any plastic parts with a Teflon lined cap.
Smell & taste.
Dr. Moran’s pharma grade DMSO is odourless by using distillation and purification to remove Dimethyl Sulfide (DMS) and any other contaminants which are responsible for the odor of industrial grade DMSO.
Initially DMSO was and still is industrially made causing the infamous garlic/oyster taste. However, ours is of pharmaceutical grade without Dimethyl Sulfide meaning that some will not experience any taste.
Crystallization at 65°F / 18.5°C
DMSO has a freezing point of 65°F / 18.5°C which means below this temperature it either crystallizes and/or becomes solid. Because of the lower temperature in the warehouse or postal truck, DMSO can arrive crystallised or frozen. It is nonetheless perfectly fine to use (please see next section).
Note: DMSO should always be used in liquid form.
There are three ways of reliquefying DMSO:
- Leave it to warm up to room temperature in a dark place (if your home temperature is under 18.5°C/65°F, it won't liquefy). It can take up to a day.
- Place it near a heater (do not place it directly on it).
- Place it in a warm water bath submerging the bottom half while making sure no water enters the bottle (keep the cap well closed).
Store in a dark and cool dry place, preferably between 20-22°C / 68-72°F.
DMSO as a carrier substance
DMSO was originally discovered as a by-product of paper-making. From the mid-20th century, researchers have explored additional use cases. Besides its use in chemistry as an aprotic solvent; it is also used in (alternative) medicine as an anti-inflammatory and carrier substance which expands and penetrates cell membranes.
It reliably dissolves organic compounds as well as fat and water-soluble components and improves the cell uptake and bioavailability of organic substances. It has a channel-opening effect. Due to its transport function for other small-molecule substances, DMSO should be diluted with distilled water or in combination with other alternative substances.
Since DMSO is a really unique agent, the area of application is huge. There are tips and dosage information in many books worth reading on the Internet. For legal reasons, we as retailers are not allowed to give any information on the effects and application on humans or animals.
Any application other than DMSO’s intended use as a solvent is the sole responsibility of the user.
Avoid contact with eyes or clothing. Wash your hands thoroughly before and after handling. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with water. Stop use immediately if an allergic reaction occurs and consult your healthcare professional.
