In considering whether or not to get a melanoma tanning treatment, whether in the salons or online, the first question that needs to be answered is, “Is melanotan 2 dilution legal?” This is an excellent question and one that should be given some serious thought before it is asked. If a customer is purchasing a product that claims to contain this ingredient but it does not have this ingredient then it is illegal to sell the product. There are some websites on the internet, however, that are selling melanotan tanning products that have this ingredient in them to state otherwise on their web site.
Melanotan is the melanocyte (cells located in the middle layer of the epidermis) stimulator. The purpose of melanoma is to regulate melanin production to protect skin from UV exposure while also increasing color intensity. When melanocytes are stimulated they produce melanoma, which is a melanocyte stimulating agent. In order to achieve the intended effect from melanoma injections the melanoma has to be mixed with a carrier (such as ethylenediamine hydrochloride) in an appropriate dilution.
In order for a tanning agent, to be legal a dilution of at least two parts per million must be used. This amount is far lower than the concentration of melanoma found in natural sunlight which is around fifteen parts per million. This diluted melanotan must also be properly labeled as containing dilution agents so as not to be misleading to customers who may think they are getting a natural tan when in actuality they are not.
Any skin care product that contains melanoma must also state that it is safe for use on all skins. This means that even people with very sensitive skin must use it if the manufacturer states it is safe to do so. For example, cosmetics such as tanning accelerators must carry warning signs that they are intended for sensitive skin. All tanning products must also be tested by the American Academy of Dermatology for safety on various types of skin before being sold.
There are three ways that melanoma can be administered via injection. Intra-epithelial (IP) melanotan is given by way of injection directly into the skin where it penetrates deep. Subcutaneous (SC) melanoma can also be injected but is only effective on the top layer of skin. Finally, subdermal melanoma can also be absorbed through the skin and this is the most commonly used method of melanotan dosing.
Intra-epithelial melanotan is the best type for use during tanning because it is the highest concentration of melanotan available. It penetrates deeply into the skin, acting to block the ultraviolet light that causes skin damage. Although IP products are good at absorbing melanotan, many people do not like the taste or texture of the lotion. In addition, a problem with some IP products is that they may not reach the deepest layers of the skin, leaving behind a lighter colored appearance on the surface than was already there.
Subcutaneous melanotan dosing is a common option for those who would prefer a simpler solution. This method uses a plastic syringe that is inserted into the skin. Once you have injected the tanning lotion into your skin, you will just need to take off your shirt or wrap a bandage around your arm or leg. This method of tanning may not give as dark a result as the ip method, but it is still effective and does not leave the skin as pale as IP products.
The last type of tanning lotion is for Intense Melanoretan. This product goes beyond the IP products by delivering extra-light rays that penetrate deeper into the skin. As with subliminal light, there are some risks involved with this type of tanning. Those who are considering using an intense tanning lotion should speak to a professional tanning salon in their area for more information.
