Melanin is the skin pigment produced, which protects our skin from solar ultraviolet radiation and damage. It can be considered as our body's own natural sunscreen. The low melanin content means that the skin is vulnerable to DNA damage due to excessive sun exposure. The lack of melanin and its protection from ultraviolet radiation means that those with fair skin have a tendency to burn and risk more DNA damage. This also means that they invest a lot of time to tan safely without burning.
Getting enough vitamin D from the sun without the risk of melanoma is a kind of balance to some extent. Studies have found that staying away from the sun to prevent melanoma can lead to vitamin D deficiency.
In order to get a safe tan, we need to stimulate the melanocyte-stimulating hormone responsible for increasing melanin production.
Scientists discovered the use of "tanning peptides" while studying possible ways to treat skin cancer. They hypothesized that the body's natural pigment system induced by the melanin production process can produce a protective tan before UV exposure, thereby reducing the possibility of skin damage.
With only a small amount of ultraviolet radiation, the release of a-melanocyte stimulating hormone will stimulate the natural increase of melanin production by melanocytes in the skin. Regardless of your skin type, using tanning peptides can provide more a-MSH, resulting in more melanin and greater tanning potential (skin pigmentation).
Clinical trials have shown that the use of Melanotan II may have the potential to promote melanin production with minimal side effects. The main role of melanin production is to protect the subcutaneous tissue, that is, the subcutaneous tissue from damage caused by UV-B light. It works by absorbing all UV-B light, thereby preventing it from entering the skin layer.
Melanotan is a synthetic melanocortin, a hormone from the pituitary gland at the bottom of the brain that regulates growth and development.
It helps to accelerate the production of melanin, a pigment that absorbs ultraviolet rays and gives skin color. When administered by injection in just one week, Melanotan has a (semi-permanent) effect to darken the skin, just like being tanned by the sun.
Melanotan-II is a chemical substance manufactured in the laboratory, similar to the hormone found in the human body. Be careful not to confuse melanotan-II with melatonin.
Melanotan-II is used as an injection to allow men with ED (erectile dysfunction) to get erections, tan their skin, and prevent skin cancer caused by sun exposure.
Melanotan II (MT2) is a stimulating peptide which induces skin tanning. Melanocyte Stimulating Hormones (MSH) are a class of peptide hormones produced in the intermediate lobe of the pituitary gland that stimulate pigment cells (melanocytes) in the skin and hair to produce and release melanin which leads to darker skin and hair. Melanotan II increases melanin production via stimulation of skin pigment cells called melanocytes.
1. Able to get a deeper tan with less exposure to UV radiation
2. May reduce the risk of melanoma (skin cancer)
3. May reduce the incidence of sunburned skin
4. People with fair skin have the ability to form a tan by using MT2 peptide.
5. It can cause body fat loss
6. No sunburn, no tan
7. No tan streaks or fake tan removal
8. It can increase libido
In clinical trials used as a tanning agent,it was found that melanotan II is an effective male erection stimulant. It has also been shown to increase female libido in patients with sexual arousal disorders.
Melanotan-II is similar to a substance in our body called "Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone", which increases the production of pigments that darken the skin. Melanotan-II may also act in the brain to stimulate erection of the penis.
