Derma-E - Firming Moisturizer With DMAE, Alpha Lipoic and C-Ester - 2 oz.

Derma-E DMAE Alpha Lipoic C-Ester Retexturizing Crème is paraben free and eco-friendly! An intensive moisturizing and firming crème that combines widely acclaimed DMAE, Alpha Lipoic Acid and C-Ester to hydrate and retexturize skin. While improving skin tone and elasticity, this formula also delivers much-needed nutrients and moisture to your skin.

  • Widely-acclaimed DMAE and Alpha Lipoic Acid are combined with C-Ester in this rich moisturizing formula.
  • A concentrated crème that applies easily, absorbs rapidly and conditions your skin with effective amounts of antioxidants.
  • Hydrates, retexturizes and improves collagen and elastin health for firmer, younger looking skin.

Gravity-defying DMAE reduces facial sag and firms skin. Researchers report that it has improved skin hydration and tone, lip shape and fullness, and reduced the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Alpha Lipoic Acid, the universal antioxidant, protects both water and fat soluble cell structures from free radical damage, while C-Ester stimulates the production of collagen, essential for skin tone and elasticity. Enriched with additional vitamins and botanicals to nourish and hydrate your skin, derma e's complete line of DMAE products is formulated to improve skin tone and reduce wrinkles.

As with all new skin care products, before starting regular use, we recommend that you ''patch test' for sensitivity. Apply a small amount of product beneath the ear or below the jaw line to make sure you do not have an adverse reaction. Wait at least 24 hours before applying to your face. If you have a reaction, discontinue use immediately.

Can Anti-Aging DMAE Facial Cream Tighten Aging Skin?

A New Use For An Old Ingredient
Prescribed for many years as a treatment for cognitive disorders, DMAE has recently become a popular skin-firming ingredient. DMAE is naturally found in fish, such as salmon, and may exist in the human brain in very small amounts. It is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, responsible for the cell communication required for many cognitive functions. It is believed that many beneficial properties of DMAE are related to its ability to affect the levels of choline.  Over the past few years, DMAE has been touted as a "face lift in a jar." Youthful skin is firm because the muscle fibers under the skin are short, thick and taut. As we age, these fibers lengthen and loosen. Skin sags and becomes thinner. To restore the youthful, firm appearance, cosmetic surgeons actually cut the fibers, physically lifting and shortening them. DMAE may be a natural, gentler alternative.

Is DMAE A Natural Face Lift?
Recent studies have demonstrated that DMAE produces similar astounding results. In one study, a group of patients applied a 3% DMAE enriched gel on one cheek and a control gel lacking DMAE on the other cheek. Forty-five minutes after topical application of the two treatments, researchers measured both skin firmness and hydration. Both formulations improved hydration of the skin, but only DMAE improved skin tone. The 3% DMAE solution significantly increased tensile strength of the skin suggesting that topical application of DMAE firms skin and reduces facial sag. A different study using a 3% DMAE gel reported similar improvement in skin firmness and added that after 16 weeks,DMAE reduced the appearance of lines and wrinkles and improved lip shape and fullness. DMAE can help reverse the passage of time and give you a younger face using only gentle skin care formulations.  The mechanism behind these results is not yet understood. Research on DMAE as a topical agent is just beginning and much remains to be learned. One hypothesis about how DMAE works suggests that DMAE improves skin firmness by stimulating muscle contraction. Acetylcholine is the neurotransmitter responsible for sending messages between nerves cells and muscles. Increasing levels of DMAE may increase the level of acetylcholine and lead to increased muscle contraction. Increased muscle contraction shortens the muscle fibers and tightens skin. Another possible mechanism is that DMAE aids in hydrating the connective tissue therefore stretching skin more tautly. Only with more rigorous research will we understand how DMAE lifts skin.

More Benefits
Though DMAE is known as a skin-firming agent, it also has demonstrated antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that make it an ideal skin care ingredient. Antioxidants protect the cell structures from free radical damage, slowing the aging process and preventing the formation of lines and wrinkles. Anti-inflammatory agents soothe skin, keeping it healthy and radiant. DMAE has also been reported to reduce the appearance of age spots. When the brown cellular pigment, lipofuscin, begins to accumulate in cells, age spots appear. In one study,centrophenoxine (which contains DMAE) flushed cells of excess lipofuscin, providing hope that DMAE can also make age spots disappear.  Gravity-defying DMAE reduces facial sag and firms skin. Combining DMAE, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and C-Ester helps to lift, protect, hydrate and nourish your skin. Alpha Lipoic Acid, the universal antioxidant, protects both water and fat soluble cell structures from free radical damage; C-Ester stimulates production of collagen, essential for skin tone and elasticity.  Published research on the topical benefits of DMAE is just beginning to appear, but the results are positive. DMAE removes years from your appearance by improving skin tone and firming and hydrating skin. It also scavenges free radicals and soothes skin. For younger, healthier skin naturally and gently, try DMAE in a skin care formulation.

    I am only 34 and have taken good care of my skin, but now that I'm nearing my mid-30's I wanted to step it up a notch. Though wrinkles are not really an issue yet, I feel like the overall texture of my skin is better. More supple and an even tone. It's like I've done some sort of face scrub--very clean and smooth, but often times scrubs irritate my skin. I really like this. I'm pairing it with the toner and plan to try other DermaE products in the future.

    This goes on nicely and it doesn't cause my skin to break out either. The only thing I dislike about it is the smell. The smell shouldnt bother people who are used to using scented products though. I typically use unscented.

    I noticed results over a 2 week period. My friends said asked me what I was doing-that it looked like I had a face lift. The wrinkles around my eyes and mouth have just about disappeared, my eyelids have lifted, my pores are smaller, and my skin is brighter. I've been using it for 2 months now. LOVE IT!!!! p.s. I'm in my late 40's :) I use it at night under my regular eye and facial moisturizer. Using it alone made my skin feel dry.

    Terrible. The acid burned my face and neck. Still bright red, burning and sometimes itchy after 5 days!! Don't have problems with other derma e products and have never had issues with glycolic acids before. I do not have "sensitive" skin so must be bad batch. Will return to manufacturer directly.

    I wish I could tell you that I had the same experience as all the good reviews. I use many products from this line so I thought that this cream might be a good one to try. I was mistaken. Maybe there was something wrong with this particular batch but I can tell you to be careful. It began to itch about 5 minutes after I applied the product so I washed it off immediately but it was too late. It gave me an inflamed chemical burn that took more than a week to heal.

    I like this moisturizer because it does seem to firm up the skin some but I was a little surprised that it didn't really moisturize very well. I had to use another moisturizer in the mornings because this is great for firming but it can actually dry out my skin a little. Most likely due to the vitamin A. I haven't had to worry about wrinkles yet but I do deal with some visible pores and want to prevent any future wrinkles so this seems to work for that. This does have a very slight scent to it. It states that it's lavender but it also has a slight powdery scent to it. The fragrance isn't strong and it does dissipate. The serum also has the same scent.
