DMAE Ionic Liquids

N,N-dimethyl ethanolamine (Deanol, DMAE, DMEA) is present in antiaging, facial moisturizing, lip balm, and facial cleansers. Clinical reports have chronicled DMAE’s potential to boost alertness, focus, memory, physical performance, and mental clarity. Yet DMAE continues to be mentioned as the go-to skin firming agent in cosmetic circles.

Chemically, DMAE is a structural analog of choline (N,N,N-trimethylaminoethanol), a vital nutrient required for the production of acetylcholine, a the neurotransmitter in the human body. Acetylcholine mediates memory, mood, and muscle control. Due to structural similarity, DMAE serves as an excellent precursor for choline and acetylcholine. However, biochemists established that diet is the most reliable source of DMAE. Organic diets that are rich in DMAE include salmon, anchovies, or sardines.

DMAE can also be applied topically as creams, soaps, body wash, balms, cleansers, moisturizers, lotions, etc. Commercial DMAE supplements often contain salts such as DMAE bitartrate, succinate, aceglumate, acetamidobenzoate, orotate, etc. BioFuran Materials supplies R&D type DMAE salts of formate, acetate, lactate, glycolate, propionate, butyrate, valerate, levulinate, tartrate, anisate, benzoate, salicylate, oxalate, citrate, mandelate, etc. Our wide selection of DMAE salts empowers enthusiastic scientists to fully explore the new uses of DMAE salts.

Established toxicity data of DMAE and/or its salts is as follows:

  • Oral Toxicity (LD50): 1803 mg/kg (rat).
  • Dermal Toxicity (LD50): 1220 mg/kg (rabbit).
  • Inhalation Toxicity (LC50): 6.5 mg/l (rat).

What are Synatra Fragrance Oils?

BioFuran Materials LLC (BioFM), a chemical manufacturing company out of Pittsburgh, PA, has developed an approach for derivatizing signature scent chemicals into stable, single component, pure ester derivatives that fragrance formulators can independently use. The esters are sold directly to air care product developers or are blended into simpler but fragrance-rich blends, herein Synatra (Synthetic Natural) Fragrance Oils. Our Synatra Fragrance Oils are carefully designed to meet specific scent preferences as well as niche requirements. Our representative Synatra blends include, but are not limited to, Pinetrus, Mint, Sunshine, Merry Mary, Exotic Floral, My Thyme, JES, Banana, Fruita, BreathAgain, Clean, and Famelo. These fragrance oils can be incorporated into air care products commonly used in offices, schools, hospitals, churches, theaters, stores, hotels, health clubs, restaurants, restrooms, airports, cars, taxis, buses, trains, terminals, boats, homes, apartments, homeless shelters, detention centers, and others. Typical air products include candles, inhalers, body oils, facial steamers, creams, incense sticks, bath salts, clay masks, soaps, detergents, shampoos, deodorants, air fresheners, fabric softeners, etc.

Why Synatras?

It is widely known in the air care industry that plant-derived essential oils (EO) are complex mixtures of chemical compounds. Also, constituent EO chemicals carry a wide range of functionalities including alcohols, aldehyde, acids, basic amines, esters, sulfurs, etc. However, a few chemicals carry the signature scent of each EO. For instance, thymol in thyme; carvacrol in oregano; citronellol & geraniol in geranium & rose, 1,8-cineole in eucalyptus, menthol in peppermint, linalyl acetate in lavender, limonene in orange, eugenyl acetate in clove, methyl salicylate in wintergreen, etc.

A recurrent problem with EOs is the unavoidable fluctuations in their on-the-shelf quality particularly due to spontaneous degradative chemical speciation. Chemical speciation is ideally driven by air oxidation, polymerization, and other degradation reactions, some of which generate potentially hazardous species. It is therefore prudent to stabilize fragrance oil to minimize spontaneous speciation. We believe that our Synatra products provide superior stability and long-lasting scents, two critical parameters required for ensuring optimum scent quality and safety.
