Carla, Many medications can be and are applied topically by prescription. With that in mind, realize that this particular ingredient is wonderful but understand that this is indeed one of those that may create sensitivity with those already using topical hormones or just use sparingly and see how you respond. Sorry for the very late response..... ...»

I purposely waited a few months before writing my review. I am happy to report this product is great! I combined the DMAE product with the base creams resulting in tighter skin and lessened wrinkles, including areas around underarms... ...»

Powered ingredient easy to blend, dissolves easily, no gritty feel, product does however transfer this chemical transdermally and should be thought about prior to mixing as it does effect hormones. Gives skin a quick firm appearance in personal formulations and was a great experimental addition to personal products. The DIY provided on this site is the way to go to try out this product. A little goes a long way... ...»

Im 45 years old; average looking skin for my age. Applied a small pea sized amount of Sea Kelp Bioferment to my face full strength in the am after washing my face of previous night makeup.; let face "dry". Then aplied my foundation as always. Noticed my thick, heavy foundation applied more easily and smooth. Keep in mind this is DAY TWO of me using this. TWO women at work ( separate departments) commented how wonderful my face looked! One specifically came up to me and asked what I was.. ...»

Many thanks for the Silicone DM. This product is lovely quality; it is light, silky, and leaves no residue at all. I use it in the base recipe for a mouldable polymer that I then use to make a simulated 'Amber' for bead making. At the end of this process I have a silky, translucent polymer plus the most gorgeous hands in the studio ! My thanks again, Helen.. ...»

Buy DMAE Bitartrate For Skin Care

Dimethylaminoethanol [DMAE] is structurally similar to choline, an important component of cell membranes. Choline is a precursor to acetylcholine, which stimulates muscle contraction. DMAE is known to have skin tightening effects. In several clinical studies, it successfully reduced wrinkles, improved lip fullness, and tightened neck skin. Overall, DMAE has a skin lifting effect. These studies showed DMAE is safe for extended use and does not irritate skin. Pure DMAE is very basic, which may have negative effects on the skin. Thus DMAE bitratrate, the salt form of DMAE, is used in topical formulations as the pH is close to that of skin.  DMAE is the active ingredient in Tricutan ( Dermyn Active Serum). Regretably, due to Candian law and PayPal regulations, this product may NOT be shipped to Canada.

Key benefits of DMAE bitartrate in skin care: 

  • Wrinkle tightener [3] [7] [8] [9]
  • Anti-inflammatory [3] [6]
  • Moisturizing and hydration [8]
  • Antioxidant [3]
  • Reduce dark circles under eyes [8]
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles [3] [5] [7] [8] [9]

DMAE Bitartrate

About DMAE in DIY Skin Care

2-Dimethylaminoethanol [DMAE] is a compound structurally similar to choline, a precursor to acetylcholine [9]. DMAE can be methylated to form choline. Acetylcholine is mainly thought of as a neurotransmitter, but there is non-neuronal free acetylcholine present in skin. It is thought to have actions separate from its neuronal activity. Acetylcholine regulates basic cellular functions such as proliferation, differentiation, and locomotion [3]. Additionally, choline is an important molecule in phospholipids, which make up cell membranes [4]. Compromised cell membranes can be a sign of aging. DMAE is found naturally in fish such as salmon, but it is also present in small amounts in the human brain [6]. It was originally supplemented orally to treat central nervous system disorders, but it essentially hardened areas of the brain, so focus shifted toward DMAE’s topical applications [8].

DMAE is a powerful anti-aging active ingredient. In a clinical study, skin treated with a 3% DMAE gel showed greater tensile strength [9]. This is good for sagging, aged skin. In another clinical study, a 9% DMAE topical formulation increased collagen fiber thickness and dermal [deep skin layer] thickness [8]. Dermal thickness decreases with aging, about 6% each decade. It also increased skin hydration and reduced wrinkles, under-eye dark circles, and overall had a “lifting” effect [8]. This group reported no adverse effects of using topical DMAE over the course of a year. 3% DMAE is considered safe and effective at reducing wrinkles and improving lip shape and fullness and tightening neck skin [3]. Also, topical application of DMAE does not irritate the skin. The effects of DMAE lasted at least two weeks. In another study, a formulation containing DMAE increased firmness in photoaged skin, skin with chronic damage due to sun exposure [7].

The mechanism of DMAE is currently unknown, although there are many possible theories. One is that DMAE increases the amount of acetylcholine deep in the skin, stimulating the muscles of the face. DMAE’s “lifting” effect is often attributed to its effects on the facial musculature. Other studies show DMAE is unable to increase levels of acetylcholine [4]. Other theories are that DMAE has anti-inflammatory actions [3, 6] and that it increases collagen production [6]. DMAE has also been shown to have free radical scavenging activity [3]. Free radicals cause skin damage and promote premature skin aging. DMAE also helps decrease protein crosslinking, a characteristic of aging [3]. Protein crosslinking can reduce the activity of proteins, which are essential for bodily functions.

Pure DMAE is extremely basic, meaning it has a pH well above 7, the approximate pH of skin. This makes pure DMAE unsatisfactory for skin care use. An in vitro [outside the body] study using fibroblasts [collagen-producing cells] shows pure DMAE reduces cell proliferation with increasing concentrations [2.5-10%] [2]. This is likely because the basic pure DMAE caused a rapid change in pH that negatively affected the cells. Pure DMAE has also been shown to increase swelling indicative of vacuolization, a negative skin response, when applied to rabbit ears [5]. Therefore, the salt form of DMAE, DMAE bitartrate is commonly used. In a comparison between pure DMAE and DMAE bitartrate, both showed stable behavior and had the same storage characteristics [1]. DMAE bitartrate has a neutral pH of 7 compatible with skin.

"It has been demonstrated that DMAE causes some degree of skin tightening. However, despite speculation it remains unclear how DMAE firms the skin -- whether by stabilizing the membranes, boosting acetylcholine, reducing lipofuscin deposits or none of the above. Whatever the mechanism, the effect of DMAE is often noticeable although seldom dramatic.
Besides, even though DMAE can't fully reverse the existing facial sag, it may reduce its further progression. Some people report a cumulative effect with continued use of DMAE

DMAE is the active ingredient in Tricutan.

Scientists investigate anti-ageing attributes of Tricutan
"Swedish scientists say that dermatological research they have carried out on the anti-ageing ingredient Tricutan confirms that it can improve skin firmness and elasticity" [7]
