PSF DMAE Gel - has anyone tried this? I'm looking for something with minimal ingredients.

I'm also re-thinking my position on DMAE after reading a discussion about the "study" on another board recently. I absolutely loved what DMAE serum was doing for me as far as tightening but I immediately stopped using it when I heard about the study without ever really reading or asking about the study. It was mentioned in this other discussion that the study was done in vitro and also injected into a rabbit is how they came to their conclusions. I'm tending to agree with the answer Dr. Pickard (sp?) from skinbiology gave regarding the study that "injecting" (into a rabbit nonetheless) is not the same as topical application on a human, the penetration would not be the same. What is your opinion on this? Thanks.

I'm still using PSF DMAE gel. I mix a pump full with my moisturizer and like the results. I may do a bit more reading about the product's sideeffects, although I don't see any obvious negative changes in my skin.

Just to clarify, I meaning to say that I think all the DMAE fuss and alarm may not be warranted, I think it would be fine to use. There are devout, long time Perricone and Janssen Beckett (sp?) users who have achieved and maintained improvement in their skin and both these lines use DMAE. If it had ill effects, wouldn't their skin have suffered by now? I'm sure we would have heard about any negative effects from long term users by now, what with all the beauty boards around. I'm am going to start using DMAE again.

Here is a link to a pub med study and also to an article that I found:

I know a lot of people love it and get good results, but I hate DMAE with a passion, probably more than anything else Iíve tried. It does ďtightenĒ my skin, but it also gives it a kind of artificial plastic/rubber like feel which I donít like.

Wish I could use it, as I definitely could do with some skin tightening, but somehow it just doesnít feel right for me. Iím pretty certain Iíve got a half used bottle of PSF DMAE gel hidden away in my product graveyard, but I donít dare look in there often ... too scary!

I've been using PSF DMAE gel for over a year now. Great stuff - I noticed immediate tightening around my eye area and I've just kept it up. I don't get a 'plastic-y' feel from it, maybe the formulation is a bit different to other brands? This is the only DMAE brand I've tried and it's one of my must-have products.

I'm one of the people who can't use DMAE - I get the lifting effect, but soon after my face sags like crazy from it. I have no idea why. Especially my eye area just droops w/DMAE application, which is weird since DMAE is supposed to have the opposite effect. Plus after using DMAE, my skin peels like crazy too. I figure I'm just sensitive/reactive to it. A pity since I have an almost full bottle of DMAE serum.

I am so glad that I came across this thread! I was using PSF DMAE gel and absolutely loved it and then the study came out and I got scared and gave it up! I have missed DMAE since then and I think I am about to order it again!

i think it should be pretty clear that the lifting and plumping effect is from your fibroblasts swelling and subsequently dying.

also DMAE was tested in vivo on inner rabbit ear skin, which is the same method use to test for comedogenicity.

It's been almost a year since this last post.
Has anyone found anything to add to this concept of DMAE?

I recently read that DMAE can help get rid of lipofuscin, also known as the "aging pigment."
