Hi. I am trying to incorporate DMAE into a serum that contains:deionized water, organic aloe leaf juice, witch hazel, carbomer, triethanolamine, alpha lipoic acid, ester C, glycolic acid, oil of tamanu, carrot oil, tocopheryl acetate, diazolidinyl urea, tetrasodium edta, may contain citric acid.
It liquifies every time. It is a very thick serum. I have tried to dissolve the DMAE in water first and it still causes the serum to melt. I have also tried to mix the DMAE with creams as thick as a butter and they also melt. It is a 37% DMAE bitartrate natural grade. I am using the recommended amount in the DIY infopack.
What must I be doing wrong?

Your doing nothing wrong. DMAE liquifies almost any base especially Carbomer bases. I am surprised actually your serum could incorporate glycolic acid. Acids are usually not composed with Carbomer gels cause they liquify it like DMAE.

You should search around and find what kind of bases the manifacturers use for DMAE. Hydroxyethylcellulose+water would work for sure cause it doesnt liquify from anything. Hyaluronic acid+water will probably work. Both bases may have problem with flaking off skin when they dry out. The base creams sold by thepersonalformulator.com probably wont liquify.

Let us know what you find at the end.

Thank-you. I think most, if not all, of the bases I have been trying do contain carbomer. I will check out TPF.
