This 3% DMAE Gel uses the amine form of DMAE in a simple, water-soluble gel base. This gel is formulated at the optimal pH so that there is no neutralization of the DMAE, and thus no loss of efficacy. Various scientific studies have shown that a properly formulated, non-neutralized 3% DMAE Gel displays both temporary and long term skin firming and wrinkle smoothing capabilities. This gel disappears into the skin & will not "ball-up" or "pill" under makeup.

- DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) – This active is a simple tertiary amine, and a synthetic analog of the B Vitamin choline. Numerous studies have been conducted to support the efficacy of topical DMAE and its use for improving the appearance of aging skin. Numerous open-label studies, as well as placebo-controlled, double-blind, split-face clinical trials conclude that the benefits of topical DMAE include the improvement of the appearance of sagging skin, skin firming, improvement of the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles & the overall improvement in surface texture & tone of photodamaged & aging skin.
Note: This product has a mild "ammonia-like" or "fish-like" smell that cannot be masked. It is a natural characteristic of the active ingredient in this formula, and dissipates within a few minutes of application. Refunds will not be given for this product based on fragrance.
I really wanted to love this stuff, but it dried out my skin too much (because of other products I need to use for other skin issues) and I have oily skin. My rating does not reflect that it does or does not work, because I may have had some tightening in the short time I used it. My rating is based only on that it can be very harsh on some people's skin. I even tried waiting til summer when my skin is most oily, and I still could not use this long enough to benefit from it.
This DMAE gel is great! It really firms things up. With frequent use, it tends to dry my skin a bit, so I limit usage. Yes, it smells funky, but so worth it!
I wrote a review on this product 1year 1/2 ago and I am still using it today. twice a day. When I start doubting it works ( quite a budget!!) is usually the time I run out of it... I will start noticing within 30 days that my skin is not the same and then reorder a 6 month supply.....;-)
I love this product. I noticed a difference in my skin right away. I have been using it for about 1year 1/2 and this is a product that i cannot leave without. I use it twice a day and havent had any problems with dryness but I do have oily skin. I wait about 15 minutes before applying other products. I highly recommend it.
I love this product. It's the only product I know of that actually firms skin. It makes my old eyes look open and alert. My lips are where I notice the biggest improvement though. DMAE has given me back the firm plump lips of my youth. I use it twice per day all over my face and neck, morning and night. I didn't notice real change when I was only using it once per day. It's drying though, so I have to follow it 30 minutes later with a moisturizer. I allow the 30 minutes for the pH of the product to normalize, so I get the most benefit out of it. Great product, and PSF is the only company that offers DMAE in the proper proportion and pH to be clinically effective.
