Hi there,

I was wondering if someone could let me know how exactly this chemical is used in the tanning process.

Thanks.

I tried to search it on the internet and the best answer (that I could understand) I got, was that it is part of the process that "meth" labs use to produce drugs (Dope)- and NOT for tanning. Of course, this could be but one use for it, but I have not personally come across it in tanning. As a matter of fact - the more I read the scarier it got! Apparantly they refine sassfras to produce this halucinatory drug.


Thanks for trying

Thanks for the help. Thats exactly what i came up with when i searched the net. Did find a site that mentioned that it was used in tanning though, but it did not elaborate.
