How does DMAE work?
DMAE has a tiny molecule size. As a result, it penetrates the skin easily, soaking into the lower layers of tissue quickly, tightening, and plumping.

Recommended Use: Add a concentration of 1-5% of DMAE Powder to your formula to achieve a 5% concentration of DMAE.

Great for neck firmness, sagging neck skin, under-eye dark circles, nasolabial folds, and the appearance of wrinkles, including those on the forehead.

Perfect for all skin types and those with sensitive skin. It is typically well-tolerated by users and does not cause peeling, dryness, stinging, itching, or burning sensations when applied.

Consult a physician before use if you are pregnant, lactating, or have a known medical condition.

Ask a Question
  • What If making a serum what are the best products to mix DMAE powder with? Or can you use distilled water? Glycerin?

    The DMAE can be added to the water phase of your formula. The water phase can be water or Glycerin based. Experienced formulators should only use this product without dissolving. If you are a beginner, try dissolving the crystals in distilled water before adding to your formulation.

  • Can you tell me please what is the source of your information on the use dosage? Have you recommendations on its dosage from the manufacturer of dmae powder? Please answer me clearly that your information is valid! I'm afraid to make a mistake and put a triple dose of dmae in case of a 3% - 10% match. What ph range is the 3-5% dmae solution? is dmae bitartrate acidic? Your answer is very important to me. Thank you very much.

    The DMAE should be used at a 1-5% concentration. For example, if you have a 30 ml product, you would add .3 grams. For a 5% concentration, add 1.5 grams of DMAE powder. Most of the time, this powder can be added directly to the end of the formulation. You could also add it to the Water Phase or dissolve it at a 1:1 ratio if needed. You should always test a small amount to make sure it completely dissolves in your formula before adding it.

    To find the PH of a DMAE solution, you can use a PH meter or test strip to measure it.

    Our DMAE is neutralized with tartaric acid. Therefore, it is not the acidic version.
