This is one of the newest peptides available and is a derivative of Melanotan II, created to increase the weight loss effect but still shows some increase in pigmentation and tanning effect. This is a good choice for those that want a mild tanning effect or more of an evening effect with the focus on the additional benefits provided.

Melanotan I, Melanotan II, and Setmelanotide are analogs of the peptide hormone alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) that induces skin tanning.
Like its predecessor, it provides a protective mechanism against UV rays and has some tanning and libido effects. Setmelanotide, an eight amino acid cyclic MC4R agonist peptide has been investigated in several clinical studies for the treatment of obesity, including rare genetic disorders of obesity.
These genetic deficiencies include subjects with pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) deficiency, proprotein-convertase (PCSK1) deficiency, leptin receptor (LEPR) deficiency, Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS), Alström syndrome (AS), and selected other genetic forms of early-onset severe obesity arising from defects that impair the MC4R pathway.
Results indicate that setmelanotide is generally well-tolerated in humans and holds promise for treating obesity and hyperphagia in subjects with these rare genetic disorders of obesity.
