Most payment service providers are smart enough to be on the lookout for rogue merchants selling steroids or SARMs for use in bodybuilding. But what they may not be aware of are merchants selling synthol, a potentially dangerous injectable masquerading as a harmless topical. Although synthol and other products like it have been around for years, LegitScript has seen surge in merchants selling this product used by bodybuilders to boost the cosmetic appearance of muscles.

However, synthol and other SEOs such as paraffin, sesame, and walnut oils are frequently purchased for use as dermal fillers to create artificial muscle mass. When injected, the oil expands and hardens inside the body, resulting in a rocklike texture and appearance, which often must be drained or removed surgically. The ingredients in synthol have not been analyzed by the FDA for use as a dermal filler, in part because it is marketed for topical use. Furthermore, the FDA has not approved any dermal fillers for large-scale body contouring or for implantation into tendons, ligaments, or muscles.

This lack of regulation poses major risks for those who inject it, as these products may contain toxic ingredients. Self injection without the supervision of a medical professional may increase this danger. Even though many fitness and bodybuilding platforms warn their communities about the risks associated with synthol, LegitScript still sees new websites and merchants regularly appear.
