Natural or Synthetic Thymol

Recommended Posts

I have been pricing Thymol and have been asked whether I need Natural or Synthetic crystals.

its not something Id ever considered.

Does anyone know which is required.

The natural Thymol is substantially more expensive.

I thought it was the active ingredients in the natural that made it effective against vsrroa. Not sure what the synthetic has relative to the natural though.

Are you trying to make your own brew up cheaper than Apiguard?

i did not know there was a synthetic one available. I use Thymol based product because it's natural. Is there a brand name for the synthetic product?

The difference between synthetic and natural is that the synthetic is made in the lab while the natural is extracted from a natural source. The chemical is exactly the same though. Many "natural chemicals" (called natural because they exist in nature) are cheaper made in the lab than extracted from natural sources.
