Although originally used as a tanning peptide, this peptide also increases libido in both males and females, though not as much as it’s derivative PT-141. It also is used in weight loss for its effect on lowering inflammation and helping improve metabolism. This has a lesser libido effect than PT-141 for those that need an extra boost and would enjoy its other targeted effects.

Melanotan I and Melanotan II are analogs of the peptide hormone alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) that induces skin tanning.
Like its predecessor, Melanotan I, MT 2 plays a role in stimulating melanogenesis. Thus, it provides a protective mechanism against UV rays. Under its actions, melanocytes can increase production and secretion of the hormone melanin.
Scientists have also noticed that MT 2 had a positive effect on libido due to its aphrodisiac properties.
Additionally, MT 2 exhibits a mild positive fat-mobilizing effect. Melanotan I is an FDA approved drug under the brand name Scenesse. Scenesse is most commonly used to treat patients that have an intolerance to light.
