      Frequently Asked Questions

      What is Melanotan 1?

      Melanotan 1 and Melanotan 2 are both analogs of the peptide hormone alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) that induces skin tanning. Like its predecessor, Melanotan I, MT 2 plays a role in stimulating melanogenesis. Thus, it provides a protective mechanism against UV rays since, under its actions, melanocytes can increase production and secretion of the hormone melanin. Scientists have also noticed that MT 2 had a positive effect on libido due to its aphrodisiac properties. Additionally, MT 2 exhibits a mild positive fat-mobilizing effect. Melanotan I is an FDA approved drug under the brand name Scenesse, which is most used to treat patients that have an intolerance to light.

It also helps to reduce sun damage and increases sexual arousal, sexual desire, and appetite.
