For that, Melanotan 1 and melanotan 2 are responsible for increasing the production of Melanin pigment in the body as these medicines stimulate peptide hormone that is Alpha-MSH.
Exposure of ultraviolet (UV) light increases the level of Alpha-MSH which in return increase the level of Melanin in the skin the more the Melanin is produced in the skin, the faster the skin appearance gets darker. It is generally recommended to those who would like to get a golden tan without being much exposure to Sun.
