WHAT... IS DMSO?
DMSO is commonly used as a vehicle for drug delivery, as a solvent for plant extractions and oils, and as a cleaning and degreasing agent. It is a clear, colorless liquid with a slightly garlicky odour and a high boiling point.
DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) is sold as a solvent in Canada and many other countries because of its unique properties as a highly polar, aprotic solvent. It has the ability to dissolve a wide range of polar and nonpolar compounds, including water-insoluble substances such as fats and oils, making it useful for a variety of industrial and scientific applications.
DMSO Canada only sells premium USP Grade Dimethyl Sulfoxide - 99.995% quality, and 0% additives or fillers, Micro filtered, purified and processed to be crystal clear with no odour. USP Grade, essential for medical and pharmaceutical industries. This USP-grade DMSO ensures high purity and adherence to stringent United States Pharmacopeia standards, making it ideal for applications demanding the highest level of quality.
INDUSTRIES THAT USE DMSO
In Canada, DMSO is approved for use as a solvent in a variety of industries including:
While DMSO has many potential uses, it is important to handle it with care and to follow the safety guidelines and regulations set by the Canadian government and other regulatory bodies. DMSO can cause skin irritation and other side effects in some individuals, and it should only be used under the guidance of a trained professional.
DMSO HAS A RANGE OF POTENTIAL USES, INCLUDING:
DMSO is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties, and it has been used to treat various inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis and bursitis.

DMSO, or dimethyl sulfoxide, is a liquid solvent that can freeze under certain conditions.
Here's what you need to know about DMSO freezing:
The freezing point of pure DMSO is approximately 18.5 degrees Celsius (65.3 degrees Fahrenheit). This means that DMSO will start to solidify and form crystals at temperatures below this point.
When DMSO does freeze, it forms crystals that can resemble ice. The crystallization process can be initiated by cooling the DMSO below its freezing point or by introducing a seed crystal into the liquid.
To thaw frozen DMSO, simply raise the temperature above its freezing point. DMSO will return to its liquid state once it reaches temperatures above 18.5 degrees Celsius (65.3 degrees Fahrenheit).
Freezing of DMSO is typical and does not effect the quality.
