DiMethylAminoEthanol, also known as DiMethylEthanolAmine and by the chemical name 2-DiMethyl AminoEthanol, has been promoted as one of the hottest new ingredients for aging skin. Several lines, including NV Perricone, use this ingredient as the staple in their anti-aging skin care lines. Now you can too.
DMAE is a natural vegetable sourced, organic, ingredient that has been in use in the nutrition industry, as a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, for many years.
Now, DMAE has found its place in NutraCosmetics. Offering a visible tightening and firming effect, DMAE is one of the most effective weapons, that nature gives us, for the battle against loose, sagging skin. This effect is the result of several mechanisms; the most powerful being dermal layer hydration, which is significant enough to plump the skin, and a proven thickening of the dermal layer resulting in collagen fiber thickness and strength, resulting in an immediate firm, toned skin, with fewer wrinkles.
DMAE may be used in emulsions and gels, where it offers formula stability through its ability to swell water, this is not achieved through the same mechanism, or to the same viscosity of polymers, but it is significant and offers smoothness.
