Melanotan II acetate salt
A MC3-R/MC4-R melanocortin agonist. Melanotan II is a synthetic analogue of the naturally-occurring melanocortin peptide hormone α-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH), with the amino acid sequence Ac-Nle-cyclo[Asp-His-D-Phe-Arg-Trp-Lys]-NH2. It is reported to have shown to produce melanogenesis (part of the tanning process that produces darkening pigmentation in the skin).
It is reported to be used by thousands of members of the general public for sunless tanning. The FDA has not licensed melanotan II, and has explained: “There is no evidence that the product is generally recognized as safe and effective [GRAS/E] for its labeled uses”.
