DMAE…does this sound like a terrible toxic chemical that you would never put on your skin? Well, no worries! DMAE or Dimethylaminoethanol Natural (or Bitartrate) is a completely organic and vegan-sourced powerhouse ingredient that can bring about serious skin transformation.
What is DMAE?
The INCI name of DMAE is ‘Dimethylaminoethanol’ (also called as ‘Dimethylethanolamine’ or ‘Deanol’ or ‘Dimethyl MEA’). It is used both as a dietary supplement as well as for topical application in skincare products. DMAE is an analog to B vitamin choline and is a precursor to acetylcholine that is naturally produced in our bodies. Studies suggest that acetylcholine from DMAE rapidly increases cellular turnover and improves overall facial muscle tone.
When DMAE is used as an ingredient in skin care products, a precise ratio needs to be maintained and pH should be carefully balanced (since DMAE has a high alkaline pH of 10). This is done in order to avoid any conflicting results.
Editor’s Pro Tip: Be warned that skincare formulations with inaccurate concentration ratios of DMAE can be a disaster to the skin. PuraVeda Organics BioScience Peptide Complex consists of the appropriate ratio of pH-balanced DMAE along with other anti-aging peptides such as Matrixyl and Argireline and botanicals such as Gotu Kola, Tamarind, Comfrey and several others to deliver effective anti-aging results.
The Extraordinary Benefits of DMAE
On the skin, DMAE works much like popular and proven ingredients like Ginkgo Biloba and CoQ10. DMAE in creams, lotions and serums reduces the appearance of dark circles and puffy eyes, crow’s feet, droopy eyebrows, bunny lines and frown lines, forehead creases, lip lines and fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.
DMAE improves hydration and retains moisture on the skin, thus equilibrating dryness (or Vata dosha) which is the number one factor in rapid aging of skin. The effects of DMAE continue to improve, even 2 weeks after stopping application.
DMAE also has skin calming benefits, with the ability to calm inflammation caused by conditions like rosacea and eczema. In addition, DMAE is gentle on the skin, and does not cause irritation such as redness, dryness or peeling of skin.
The Ultimate Solution for Neck Firming
Sagging, creping and deep wrinkles around the jawline, chin and neck area are not uncommon for women above 40. The only solution sometimes appears to be invasive procedures. As a natural alternative, there are only a handful of known natural ingredients that have the power to firm the skin around the neck area, and one of these is DMAE. An anti-aging serum containing DMAE, Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides, Gotu Kola, Green Tea, CoQ10 and other Ayurvedic botanicals can restore collagen loss in this area, which increases thickness and elasticity as well as protecting the skin from further aging.
If you’re looking for an anti-aging treatment that truly produces long-lasting results, find a natural formula that contains DMAE as one of the primary ingredients. Also, make sure you choose a formula that has no toxic ingredients, in order to make sure the powerful detoxification abilities of DMAE are not compromised.
