Melanotan 2

Melanotan 2 is a tanning peptide designed to stimulate the body’s production of melanin. This allows for a natural and deep tan. Melanin is a natural response of the body to protect itself from UV damage and slightly darkens the skin to help stop further damage. To achieve a full body tan, you are exposing yourself to the sun and the levels of UV radiation are dangerous. This can cause serious health problems including skin cancer.

How Melanotan 2 Works

Melanotan 2 stimulates the tanning response of the body and requires just minimal exposure to the sun. This is an excellent way for individuals with fair or extremely fair skin to get an amazing tan while avoiding the process of laying in the sun for weeks. The process of burning, healing, and repeating is eliminated, melanotan 2 allows individuals to tan and heal faster. Damaged skin cells can heal quicker than when tanning under the sun. This helps eliminate the risk of skin cancer for people with much paler skin.

Using Melanotan 2

The peptide is in the form of a dried powder and shipped in a vial. You simply reconstitute the product with the use of sterile water. The product is then injected beneath the skin where it can be absorbed and spread through the body.

The Benefits

Only minimal exposure to the sun is necessary making the product safer than long term UV rays. The peptide also reduces the amount of time needed to acquire a tan. You can start with a very small dose and gradually increase it until your desired pigmentation is reached. To maintain your pigment only one dose every few weeks is needed. Even if you stop using the product your tan can last for months without exposing yourself to the sun. Natural tans generally fade in about a month.
