I think I read here that it wasn't a good idea to buffer the alkalinity of the amine form of DMAE with vitamin C, but what about with lactic acid? I use that anyway. Could the two be mixed to make the amine form of DMAE more acidic, and gentler on the skin?

The common way to go is buy DMAE bitartrate, which already is a buffered form.

Thanks Dr. for your reply. I've used the DMAE bitartrate at 5% with no sucess. I would like to try the amine form. Would you know if it can be bufferd with lactic acid without diminishing the effectiveness of either active. Thanks!

A different buffering agent may not make much difference. It can probably be buffered with lactate but it is hard to predict the impact on effectiveness.
