1. Benzyl Alcohol
Benzyl Alcohol is the antiseptic which keeps the steroid solution sterile.
Alias: Benzenecarbinol,Benzenemethanol,Phenylcarbinol,Phenylmethanol,Phenylmethyl alcohol
Appearance: Colorless transparent liquid
Benzyl alcohol is used as a bacteriostatic preservative at low concentration in intravenous medications, cosmetics and topical drugs.BA is the
antiseptic which keeps the steroid solution sterile.Benzyl Alcohol (BA):A fairly potent solvent, whose main function for our purposes is keeping a
solution bacteriostatic. It's presence as low as 0.9% is enough to prevent practically all microbial growth in solution.
Benzyl Alcohol is often the primary solvent and sometime the only solvent in a steroid given formula. Its primary function is as a sterilizing agent.
However, due to its solvency power it is often used to keep hormones in solution with oil or other vehicles. It is also one of the thinnest (that is
best for viscosity reduction).
Its use in Steroids is to preserve the suspension for months, even years, without any reduction in sterility. Alcohol is an antibacterial disinfectant
and is used as such in many industries. As aforementioned Ben酬Alcohol ensures the Steroid maintains its sterility when used in the right
Benzyl Alcohol (BA) is used to increase the lipid solubility of esterfied compounds and to prevent bacteria growth in the oil.
The shorter the ester, the more BA is needed to get the compound to dissolve.More BA is required to dissolve the raw powder to make high
2. Benzyl Benzoate
Benzyl Benzoate (BB) is the primary solvent, which keeps the product from crashing.
Alias: Benzoic acid benzyl ester,Benzoic acid phenylmethyl ester
CAS Registry Number: 120-51-4
Einecs No: 204-402-9
Molecular formula: C14H1202
Molecular weight: 212.24
Appearance:colorless to pale yellow transparent liquid.
Benzyl- Benzoate is a solvent. This means solutes such as Hormone Powders dissolve easily in it, and that is the main purpose of its use in Steroids. The Benzyl Benzoate is used to dissolve and suspend the Hormone Powder. If the correct amount of this solvent is not used the Hormone powder will'undissolve' from the solution causing the Steroids to'Crash' (get cloudy/less effective).
Some Hormone Powder dissolve more easily than others and therefore less Benryl Benzoate is required. The fact that varying amount of the solvent are required for the Hormone Powders is why having this page as a resource is so vital.
Benzyl Benzoate (BB) is the primary solvent, which keeps the product from crashing.lt is A co-solvent in steroid that serves several functions:
helps dissolve the hormone, helps keep it in solution in depot (injection site), and thins the gear so it is easy to draw and inject.Benzyl Benzoate is the next common steroid solvent on the list. It is not nearly as strong and much heavier than the benzyl alcohol so benyl benzoate is used primarily for its latent affects in the depot. Namely it helps keep the hormone in solution at the injection site after the more water-soluble benzyl alcohol has leached from the depot. benzyl benzoate is constructed of two benzene rings bridged by a carbonyl group, this
making the solvent extremely hydrophobic. It is also painless at low levels and nearly painless at 15-20% for most people.is the next common solvent on the list.

3. Grape seed oil
GSO is called the'carrier'.A much superior oil for steroid injections.
Product Name:Grapeseed oil
Alias: Vitis vinifera
CAS Registry Number: 85594-37-2
Einecs No: 287-896-9
Grade: Food Grade
GSO=Grape Seed Oil.GSO is called the'carrier.A much superior oil for steroid injections, as opposed to cottonseed oil, but also has a shorter
shelf life. It should be stored in a dark place, at room temp.
Grape seed oil is much thinner, has anesthetic qualities, repairs damaged tissue and is actually healthy for you.lt is cheaper, more sterile,more readily available, thinner, and above all, less allergenic than other oils. The stuff shoots great.
So when you use GSO; you can use a smaller needle, create less scar tissue and help repair the tissue that is damaged with the injection.
4. Ethyl Oleate
Ethyl Oleate is a carrier. It is great for short esters like Acetate, Propionate and Phenylpropionate forincreasing concentrations of these esters without crashing.
Product Name:Ethyl oleate
Alias: ethylis oleas
CAS Registry Number: 111-62-6
Appearance:Colorless or Pale yellow transparent oily liquid
Ethyl oleate is used as a solvent for pharmaceutical drug preparations involving lipophilic substances such as steroids.lt is a relatively new solvent in the realm of bodybuilding, EO is Oleic Acid with an ethyl ester. EO is an excellent solvent for lipophilic compounds in injectable preparations. Its
oxidative stability helps extend the shelf life of compounds, and its low viscosity provides for easy injections
EO=Ethyl Oleate. EO is a solvent, which dissolves the steroid powder but its use is to thin the solution's viscosity.It's a thin and expensive oil,created from ethanol, and used as a rubber softener, solvent, and typically used by us as a base for steroid solutions. It provides smooth and painless injections, and will suspend compounds at much higher concentrations than just oil. (It will make 100mg/ml Prop completely painless...)
And because it's a solvent, it allows you to use less Benzyl Benzoate in your blends, however BA is still used to maintain sterility.
EO used for short esters
Ethyl Oleate is a carrier. It is great for short esters like Acetate, Propionate and Phenylpropionate forincreasing concentrations of these esters
without crashing.Many people feel that Ethyl Oleate creates painless injections while others don't feel the same. I only would suggest Ethyl Oleate for short esters for reducing pain and increasing concentration.
You can use a 50/50 concentration of Ethyl Oleate and oil such as Cottonseed or Grapeseed to increase concentration of NPP to 200mg/ml
Some people feel that isn't all that it is cracked up to be as many long ester formula's seem to crash. Also the other con is the cost of Ethyl Oleate.
For many the pain is reduced because Ethyl Oleate is thinner and has lower viscosity then say grapeseed or cottonseed oil.
Personally I don't use Ethyl Oleate currently as I don't see many benefits over cottonseed oil or grapeseed oil.You could even consider a 50-50 mix of EO and GSO. EO makes the gear thinner and some suggest more painless. On the other hand, some guys don't take well to EO and it causes them pain. EO also does harm to the plastic/rubber end of the plunger of a syringe so you can't hold your gear inthe syringe for any duration of storage.
If you notice, there is a trend..d generally long esters hold easier at higher concentrations and require less solvent (EO/BB) than short esters.
Some people are allergic to Ethyl Oleate.
Guaiacol is called super solvent,as with most high mg gear it contained guaiacol as a solvent used to create high level of concentrate.
Grade: PharmaceuticaI Grade
Guaiacol is the methyl ether of pyrocatechin, and is obtained by distilling guaiacum from wood-tar creosote. A strong solvent pure and simple it
has some water miscibility to it and high degree of oil solubility as well.Guaiacol is called super solvent,as with most high mg gear it contained guaiacol as a solvent used to create high level of concentrate.lt can dissolve powder more easily,and mainly used for oral steroids such as Oxa n d ro to ne, D is n a bol, W i n stro l,a n a d rol,etc.
Guaiacol is a combustable compound, so be very careful when brewing this if you use an open flame as your heat source. i would suggest
everyone have a good hotplate with automatic, magnetic stirring if you regularly homebrew though.
Guaiacol has been shown to have anesthesic properties, though to what extent I can't comment personally on. This fact is probably why solutions
in high concentrations using the super solvent are reported to be painless or nearly painless by users.
But to give you an idea of the power of the guaiacol 300mg/ml testosterone propante can be made using.5g guaiacol to 1 gram of testosterone
propante. While this inject is tolerable it is not pleasant and I would not care to do this every day. Note the pain is independent of the hormone used, 100 mg/ml is the same as 300mg/ml. The only solution that I have gotten that is somewhat comfortable is a water reducible I made with it.
1. 1 gram of guaiacol
2. 2grams of D-bol
3. 1.2m1 PG
Though Guaiacol is a super solvent we seldom use it because it causes side effects which many people don't like,such
It has been shown to have irritating properties on inhalation, injestion, or skin contact in high quantities. It permeates the skin barrier very readily
and will be distributed systemically as well.
