The Dry Ice Source
selling dry ice for cold caps
Cold Caps are used for scalp cooling
during cancer chemotherapy processes. The caps
are chilled with dry ice and then fastened
snugly to the head. This process protects the
hair follicles from the chemo drugs and helps
patients to keep their hair.
The Rapunzel Project is a non-profit
organization dedicated to helping chemotherapy
patients keep their hair during treatment.

The Dry Ice Source serves the Southwest Florida counties
of Charlotte, Sarasota, Lee, and Desoto Counties.
Dry ice is better than wet ice for keeping foods frozen
or extremely cold because it turns to a gas, not water.
• Dry ice can extend the life of wet ice by
approximately 40 hours when small amounts of wet ice are
placed on top of dry ice.
• Dry ice has approximately 15 times more cooling
capacity than the same amount of wet ice, and can last
approximately 5 times longer.
• For temporary storage (up to 12 hrs.) of dry ice,
place wrapped ice in an insulated container. Do NOT
store dry ice in a working freezer or refrigerator, as
the air flow will reduce the effective life of the dry
Styrofoam containers with thick walls available,
starting at $10.95.
Keep dry ice wrapped in paper (newspaper, paper bag,
etc.) or towels for safety. The insulation also will
extend the life of the dry ice.
Caution: Dry ice temperature is
-109.3 F. (-78.5 C.) Always handle dry ice with care –
wear gloves at all times. Store with plenty of
ventilation. If dry ice comes in contact with bare skin,
injury similar to a burn will result.
