Commercial calaims are that MDI complex MDI Complex is "a marine enzyme that inhibits the destruction of collagen" and that it "inhibits the matrix metalloproteinase".

While such an inhibiton may indeed have a strengthening effect on connective tissue under certain conditions, I couldn't find any decent data on the chemical nature of the MDI complex nor on its effects on human skin in vivo. Fewer than one in ten substances that show promise in a test tube, turn out to be effective in real practical use in humans.

Can you buy MDI in a form that can easily mix in a cream? Does it dissolve in water or oil? thanks
