Melanotan 2 (MT-II) is an analog of alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (a-MSH). This hormone acts on melanocytes to stimulate melanin production. Melanin is the body's natural pigment responsible for your tan. Melanotan peptides out compete a-MSH for binding to melanocyte receptors. The fair skinned CAN achieve a natural tan. We know that one of the best defenses against skin cancer is a natural tan which has developed over time.
MT-II use is a life style for some athletes and fitness enthusiasts who wish to have the tanned look, but would rather not expose themselves to the potentially harmful UV rays.
Melanotan 2 is a smaller peptide than Melanotan One. MT-II is significantly more potent than M-I with its amino acid structure being a protective ring-like structure. MT-II effects a greater range of melanocortin receptors and has more effects than that of the linear peptide afamelanotide. Amino acid sequence for Melanotan 2: Ac-Nle-cyclo[Asp-His-D-Phe-Arg-Trp-Lys]-NH2

Starting dose: Your first injection should be a very small dose, for example .25mg (250mcg). See how you react. Goal should be to feel nothing. Dose after dinner, before bed. Any dosing chart stating that you should take a high dose (according to your weight) is outdated and potentially dangerous.
Loading dose: Load with 0.5-1mg once a day. People who have used doses in this range generally report getting excellent results. Don’t worry if you miss occasional days. It will not make much difference, focus on the cumulative effects.
Maintenance dose: Maintenance is taking doses less frequently than daily to avoid becoming darker than you want. Yes, that will happen. With enough UV, you will get much darker than you have even been before. A maintenance dose can help prolong super physiological photo-protection MT-2 delivers.
