What it is
Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) is an amino alcohol that naturally occurs in fish.
What it does
Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) can increase the thickness of the skin. This helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
We don’t know how Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) works yet. There is some research that hints its thickening properties are a result of the skin cell death and the reduction in the proliferation of fibroblasts (the cells that make collagen) it causes. When skin is damaged, it thickens.
