    also pentane

    I couldn’t say for sure, but I know that hexane is often used for extraction.

    I knew a soap and perfume maker whose white whale was to find a non-hexane-based way to extract floral essences.

    I wouldn’t be at all suprised if some of the plant extracts at the health food store contained traces of hexane.

    But a little bit probably won’t hurt ya.

    Hexane isn’t really gasoline. It is however, a solvent used to break apart compounds that water itself can’t do. C6H14 vs Octane (the component in gasoline) C8H18. I’m betting the Hexane is used just in the production of some medications… or new age remedies as its used to extract vegetable oils. Organic Chemistry For The Win!!!

    secret ingredients

    Both men’s hair dye and spermicide contain nonoxynol-9

    Though discovering a man dyes his hair could be an effective form of birth control.

    Hexane’s also commonly used to put the “de” in “decaf.” Swiss water process for the win, as the kids say.

    Wonder if this puts you at risk to spontaneously combust? At least plan to do it in a social arena so you can be the talk of the town..
