Emu Oil vs. DMSO

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

 

When I first heard of Emu oil I was excited about it, as it penetrates skin tissue and could be used a solvent that delivers various topical oils into the scalp. I then found that this oil should be prepared carefully to prevent contamination, it is from the Emu bird, the largest bird in Australia. I have only used topical plant oils so far and ingested plant oils and the other old fashioned cooking oils, butter or lard, and also consumed fish oil, cod liver oil and krill oils.

I’ve never applied a fish or animal oil topically and was uncomfortable with that idea, so I put off purchasing Emu oil.

In my search I came across DMSO. DMSO is Dimethyl sulfoxide, it is an organosulfur compound  with the formula (CH3)2SO.  It is a  colorless liquid, it is an important polar aprotic solvent that dissolves both polar and nonpolar compounds and is miscible in a wide range of organic solvents as well as water.It is weakly acidic.

DMSO’s ability to penetrate the skin readily is what interested me, and many other researchers.  DMSO is used as a solvent for chemical reactions involving salts, most notably Finkelstein reactions and other nucleophilic substitutions. It is also extensively used as an extractant in biochemistry and cell biology.

DMSO has a very high boiling point (189 °C; 462 K), this means it evaporates slowly. In labs reactions conducted in DMSO are often diluted with water to precipitate or phase-separate products.

DMSO is something one could add to shampoo (along with many beneficial topicals) and then wash off.

DMSO is used in medicine. Around 1963, a University of Oregon Medical School team, headed by Stanley Jacob, discovered it could penetrate the skin and other membranes without damaging them and could carry other compounds into a biological system.
