Truth and Beuty (12/1/2013)
Has anyone tried cellgevity??? why no cellgevity topic in the forums???




because it's a huge waste of money... you can obtain the same results with a supplementation of N- Acetycysteine (600mg) at a tenth of the price

@pseudocatalase - the technology for a lotion version of melanotan is there, but the current CEO of Clinuvel intentionally killed the development of it years ago.  He thought (perhaps rightfully so) that the regulators would never approve a lotion version given too many would abuse it off-label. 

The company does have another topical version of melanotan that it states it still may develop, but they are intentionally keeping info about it closely guarded for now.  It has not progressed to clinical trials yet.  Also, as you probably know, Clinuvel is short on funds and is currently focused on implant trials for EPP and vitiligo.  So a topical version is years away (if ever).

@Stargazer, I find this announcement, will follow with great interest. Topical formulations have a tremendous increase in specificity, which makes it a lot easier to minimize side effects.

Some peptides do work and is a proven technology for doing what the company claims. Sederma's matrixyl 3000 is useful for stimulating collagen, at least to many people who have claimed to use it. There's too many positive comments on the internet and elsewhere imo for them all to be spam posts.

As far as gray hair no doubt it's this type of methodology that will be the way it gets successfully treated. I have no knowledge of Lucas Meyer but they advertise their melitane as a peptide that prevents and reverses graying. It's sold as Altris gel and is being prescribed by dermatologists for premature graying. As of yet I haven't seen anything posted on it but if it has been or someone has tried it hopefully they'll let us know the results.

Very interesting stuff DanRo.  I had never heard of Melitane before, but after reading into it this looks like something that has actual scientific studies performed on it specifically looking at its affect on gray hair with results.

Here's a link to a study done on Melitane I found very encouraging:  rps.mui.ac.ir/index.php/jrps/article/download/750/732

It actually states that one product on the market showed no results, while the standard peptide Melitane showed considerable results.

Here's a couple quotes from it:
"White hair average for lotion containing Melitane considerably is decreased in comparison with control lotion. This effect is not seen for Maidenhair lotion. Based on results of dermatotoxicological tests, all lotion was without side effects for eye and skin and all shampoo was mild irritant (similar to other mild shampoo in the market)."

"These findings confirm that Melitane is a melanogenesis stimulator and exhibits anti- graying property. But the products were made just by Maidenhair extract had no anti- graying effect."

So my question is has anyone here had any experience using Melitane?

@Ace_Road, thanks for the link, in my search regarding melitane I did not come across that study. The Research Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences is a peer-reviewed international monthly so their results could mean good news. The reason most of us probably haven't heard of melitane is because it hasn't come to the states yet that I can tell. So the questions are will we need a prescription to have it shipped over here and how much does it cost? Hopefully someone somewhere has tried it and can tell us whether it's worth spending the money on.

Altris gel seems impossible to find in the market. Is it a prescription only? Does anyone happen to know the price?

Altris gel is available in India but my guess is US residents won't need a prescription for it. It's already possible to purchase and import bulk melitane in powder form. I'm going to contact a few pharmacies in India and see if they'll ship it and how much it costs.

12/12/2013 Update on use of depo-melanin

I used the product on my temples and chin for five months. No changes to my chin hair. I initially believed I had some success on my temples but there has been no improvement for several months. This forces me to conclude the initial changes were mistaken. 

I do not recommend this product.

:-(

Anyone considering or currently using depo-melanin look at this Facebook page. It's spam account that promoted depo-melanin across a number of gray hair articles. Look at the wall for the glaring evidence. I could find dozens of similar instances. How many good businesses do you know engage in such practices? Stay away from it.
