Peptide Melanotan II (MT2, Melanotan 2, Mt-2, Mt-II) for Skin Tanning

How it works?

This peptide is a designed to stimulate the body’s tanning response with minimal exposure to sunlight. This can be a wonderful way for those with fair to very fair skin to get tanned without having to spend weeks in the sun and going through the burn and heal process.
By using MT2, users experience quicker tanning and and faster healing to damaged skin cells than would otherwise be possible. Because of this, it is especially suited to those who’s skin is pale; those who are at greatest risk of developing skin cancer.

How is MT2 Used?

This peptide is shipped by vial in a powder dried form that is reconstituted using sterile water and then injected under the skin where is absorbed into the skin itself and spread throughout.

Administration

Both MT and MT II are currently supplied as white lyophilised powder contained in a sealed multi-use vial. The peptide is susceptible to temperature degradation and should be shipped preferably with an ice pack though contrary to popular belief, the rate of degradation is very slow (weeks) in its powder form, so there’s no need to be alarmed if yours wasn’t shipped in this manner or you are unable to collect your package from a depot for a day or two. Once delivered, the powder is best stored in a freezer, or refrigerated if this is not possible.

To prepare for injection, it must be reconstituted with bacteriostatic water. You may use anything between 1ml and 5ml of water for your vial. Dependant upon the amount of water used will determine the concentration of your solution. For example, a 10mg vial of Melanotan II mixed with 1ml of water will provide a solution of 10mg per 1ml (10mg/ml). This means that a 1mg dose will require a shot of 0.1ml. Bearing in mind that the recommended starting dose is 0.25mg, using the example above, the actual volume of the shot would be 0.025ml (¼ of 1 tenth of a ml). This is a very small volume and very difficult to accurately dose even with a 0.5ml insulin syringe. Therefore, at least until your dosages have increased, it is suggested that you use more water for your vial.

An example of a good solution would be to mix 10mg of Melanotan II powder with 4ml of bacteriostatic water. This now provides:

10mg/4ml or 1mg/0.4ml or 0.25mg/0.1ml

0.1ml can be accurately measured using a 0.5ml or 1ml syringe.
