DMSO Leach Out Chemicals From Plastic True or False

Posted by Paula (Denver, Colorado) on 04/15/2007

I had read that you should only buy DMSO that is bottled in glass containers because it will leach out chemicals from plastic. Is this a real concern?

There is no real concern since most chemists used DMSO from plastic containers. The purity of DMSO is pretty standard whether they come from plastic containers or glass.

The DMSO I can get is as a gel that contains Carbopol (as gelatinization agent) Is it alright to use this? Do we want this chemical going into the body?

Where can I buy pharmaceutical grade DMSO in Bangkok. I have severe lower back pain and hoping that DMSO will provide some relief, I have tried most other remedies with no real success.

Thank you.
