Most people have heard of Melanotan 2 or may know of it by some of its other names – tanning injections, MTII and also the Barbie drug. It is claimed to darken the natural skin tone, increase libido and suppress appetite….. So, you may ask does it work. The short answer is “YES” it most certainly does, and there have been quite a few studies to support this.
Tanning injections were developed in the 1980’s and while this new drug was still in its infancy, a article was published (April 1996) in life sciences article 50, issue 20, the paper titled “the evaluation of melanotan II” states that for two consecutive weeks subcutaneous injections of MT2 were given to volunteers on a EOD (every other day) basis. One week after dosing had stopped there was a noticeable darkening of the skin; the study concluded that the results showed melanotan 2 has a “tanning activity in humans given only 5 low doses every other day”. The study also showed that the subjects also experienced mild nausea and spontaneous erections in the men for 1-5 hours after dosing.
How does it work?
The peptide Melanotan 2 is a alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone, which is a hormone responsible for a number of various human functions including libido, sexual arousal, appetite, hair and skin colour. This peptide is introduced and circulated within the body; it works by stimulating Melanin in the skin. Melanin is a naturally produced hormone that controls skin pigmentation, the more Melanin in the skin the darker the skin tone. Scientist hypothesised that increased Melanin would result in darker skin tone and therefore better resistance to harmful UV rays from the sun. While there are plenty of scientific studies that support their hypothesise, unfortunately there is not enough instead focus has been concentrated on a derivative of MTII called PT-141 (Bremelanotide) which is solely aimed at the sexual dysfunction market for both men and women.
