I would really like to see you foutmlare a cream or lotion with DMAE. I have tried various times without success. It always breaks the emulsion. I have successfully put it into an anhydrous formula but I don't know if that has any benefits at all since DMAE is water soluble.Lise, I too have used vit K in eye creams without a noticeable effect. It is too expensive to play around with without seeing a dramatic improvement!!
