Dimethylaminoethanol - also known as DMAE Increases skin firmness.
By potentially increasing acetylcholine in tissues, DMAE is touted for its ability
to increase skin tone. Preliminary evidence indicates applying a topical preparation
of DMAE may yield this benefit. In a 2002 double-blind trial, a topical gel
containing 3% DMAE seemed to increase the firmness of skin in 30 volunteers
who applied the preparation to their faces daily for 16 weeks. Improvements
were noted in forehead lines and lines around the eyes, as well as in lip shape,
fullness, and the appearance of aging skin. The improvements were sustained
after a two-week cessation of the application. (10) A 2005 review indicated
an open-label extension of this trial showed that long-term application of DMAE
gel for up to one year was deemed safe. And, according to the review, in vitro
studies also indicate DMAE is an effective anti-inflammatory agent, particularly
in the skin, a site of acetylcholine synthesis, storage, secretion, metabolism,
and receptivity. However, researchers called for further studies comparing the
efficacy of DMAE to other skin-care regimens such as topical Antioxidant creams
and alpha-hydroxy acids.
Methylsulfonylmethane - also known as MSM is a sulphur product.
Sulphur is also used for collagen synthesis, so it keeps collagen fibres bouncy

a scar, it can be caused by excessive cross linking patterns of collagen, and
sulphur can help make that cross linking pliable and less scar-like.
