Decoding Purple C60 Oil: The serious risks of hidden toxic solvents

 Introduction: Purple C60 oil, renowned for its potential health benefits, sometimes captivates with its mesmerising purple hue. Yet, beyond its aesthetic appeal, the purple tint holds a secret—it hints at the presence of toluene or other toxic solvents. Understanding this correlation sheds light not only on the composition of C60 oil but also on potential health risks associated with toluene exposure. Although many companies may claim to be producing a solvent free C60 Oil, the colour of the oil is the best indicator of the truth in this matter. 

Purple Hue: A Toxic Tell-Tale: The purple coloration observed in C60 oil isn't merely a visual spectacle; it's a chemical indicator. Toluene, a common solvent used in the preparation of C60 oil, interacts with C60 molecules, resulting in the distinctive purple hue. This phenomenon serves as a reliable marker for the presence of toluene in C60 oil solutions. Other toxic solvents have also been documented to turn C60 Oil purple as can be seen below.

Toluene: The Solvent in the Shadows: While toluene facilitates the dissolution of C60 molecules, its presence warrants scrutiny due to its toxicity. Toluene exposure  leads to a range of health issues, including neurological, respiratory, and dermatological complications. Prolonged or excessive exposure to toluene poses significant health risks, making it imperative to avoid C60 Oil containing Toluene (purple oil) at all costs. Although in the short term these effects may not be noticed, months and years later the consumption of toxic solvents like toluene beging to effect the body. 

Health Concerns: Toluene's Toxicity Unveiled: Toluene's toxicity stems from its ability to disrupt central nervous system function, causing symptoms such as dizziness, headaches, and nausea. Chronic exposure may result in more severe neurological disorders, highlighting the importance of minimising contact with toluene-containing substances like C60 oil.

Are suppliers of Purple C60 Oil trying to poison you? This is highly unlikely. What has most likely happened is these suppliers either purchased a cheap C60 powder in order to maximise their profits in this emerging market and are unaware of the risks involved there - you can read more about that by clicking here

You've taken a purple C60 oil and feel energised: Yes, thats called an adrenal response to a toxic substance. You are not feeling energised, you're actually feeling adrenaline in a relative dose enter your bloodstream as a result of ingesting a poison. Over a prolonged amount of time, this feeling will result in heavier crashes and symptoms of both fatigue and solvent related issues will begin to arise. 

My Purple C60 Oil supplier claimed their product was solvent free? That does not mean there are no solvents; that means that most solvents up to a certain ppm (parts per million) were evaporated off the C60 in order to classify it as solvent free - this is common with research grade C60. If the oil is purple, it means it contains solvents - end of story.

What should you do if you've taken a purple C60 oil? Stop immediately. You can either give your body a week or two to reset from the adrenal spikes caused by purple C60 oil, and commence taking a pharmaceutical grade C60 oil when you feel ready.  Pharmaceutical grade C60 has no solvents used in its process of manufacture at all and will therefore show no signs of purple coloured oil. Some examples of companies producing this level of C60 are

Greska's C60 (USA)

SES Research (USA)

Papilio Therapeutics (Australia)
