Melanotan I (Afamelanotid, formerly CUV1647), also NDP-α-MSH, is a synthetic peptide hormone, which mimics the effect of the natural hormone α-MSH.
It is however much more effective than the natural variation through targeted changes of its chemical structure.
This is due to a half-life prolonged compared to α-MSH and a much stronger attachment to the melanocortin receptor (MC1R).
Melanotan is intended for the prevention of skin cancer, especially for very fair-skinned people who live in sunny areas with strong UV exposure.
The Melanin(Eumelanin)-Produktion in the melanocytes stimulates  Melanotan. As a result, the amount of melanin in the skin by up to 100% increased and the skin becomes Brown.
The higher content of melanin provides additional protection against harmful effects of UVR - so a reduction could be proven in the controlled experiment of DNA damage by UV-exposure by up to 50%. The area was gradually expanded and includes now also allergic reactions triggered by UV radiation.
This product is intended for research and forensic applications.
