Understanding the Melanotan 2 Suntan

What is Melanotan 2?

Many people want a deep, rich suntan without having to expose themselves to hours of harsh sunlight. There are also those who are fair-skinned and find it difficult if not impossible to tan. Melanotan 2 is a peptide that stimulates melanin in the body to provide a natural tan with less exposure to sunlight. Melanin is a complex polymer derived from the amino acid tyrosine. Simply put, melanin determines skin and hair color. Increased exposure to the sun increases the amount of melanin in the body causing the skin to darken. Melanotan 2 still requires exposure to sunlight to be effective and is not a preventative measure for skin cancer. However, it does offer protection by minimizing exposure to UV sunlight to those who have a difficult time tanning.

The use and benefits of Melanotan 2

Melanotan 2 is purchased in a powdered form, then must be mixed with sterile water before injecting under the skin where it’s absorbed and spreads. Once in the body, Melanotan allows for faster, deeper tans without long exposure to sunlight. Injections and dosing can be minimal until a desired pigmentation is achieved. Also, a tan can last months after stopping the dosage of melanotan 2 without sun exposure.

Use the best products

There are many products that claim to be an effective source of tanning peptides, however, many of these products are not reliable. Products that claim to be easier to administer, such as sinus sprays or pills, are generally not effective since the peptide is too large to be absorbed through the sinuses and is destroyed by stomach enzymes. Research shows that Melanotan is an effective and reliable tanning product.
