Melanotan II works by stimulating the release of the pigment melanin from the skin. Less UV exposure is necessary with Melanotan 2 compared to “normal tanning”, and the tan that occurs with tanning injections is deeper and longer lasting than an individual’s “normal tan”. Melanotan works best (has the most noticeable effects) on people with fair to medium skin tones.

Melanotan II is a synthetic variant of the naturally occurring peptide hormone alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH)1, which acts to stimulate the production of melanin in the skin – the molecule responsible for hair and skin pigmentation – through a process called melanogenesis2. Naturally occurring α-MSH has also been shown to play a role in feeding, the maintenance of useable and stored energy, and sexual activity through its action as an agonist of melanocortin receptors MC1, MC3, and MC4; MC1 being responsible for skin pigmentation effects, and MC3 and MC4 being responsible for effects on appetite, metabolism, controlling addiction, and improving sexual arousal. (1).

Melanotan II is a cyclic heptapeptide originally developed as a defense against the potential cancer-causing effects of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation through its action of stimulating natural melanin production in the absence of sunlight4, which allows for the sunless darkening of skin tone.

In addition to its promotion of skin tanning, Melanotan II has been shown to be a lipolytic (fat cell-destroying) agent5, a suppressant of appetite6, and a stimulant of libido in animal test subjects. Melanotan II has demonstrated great efficacy in reducing caloric intake, while eliminating cholesterol and fat stores in obese mice through its targeted metabolic action.
