@BoB.org, the beard hairs that are still pigmented are dark as they've always been, although in the last few years they may have lightened up a bit. I'm primarily hoping to re-darken or slow the gray/white hairs that have come in on the lower sides and on the chin. The rest of my body hair remains normal. I will definitely keep everyone updated once I start using it.  


Thanks for the response Danro. Would the melitane solution not cause the surrounding skin on the face it comes into contact with to darken? This would be my main concern before using it.

Thanks for keeping us updated will be very interested to hear how you are getting on.

For the user that asked when I plan to start it won't be anytime soon as I am currently using MT2 which darkens my facial hair. I plan to start using this a few weeks before I cycle off MT2. 

Just want to gather as much informations and results from people as I can before getting started.

  Thanks everyone for sharing

@Bob, that's a good point, I've had the same concerns about Latisse, which supposedly does something similar with melanocytes. I've decided to try this anyway but I'm only going to put it on the sides for now to test if there's any skin darkening. If so then I'll avoid the chin.

Yeah I also heard about that latisse stuff and was close to trying it a year ago. Sounds like a good plan best of luck with it bro. Keep us updated

I tried the latisse stuff for about 9 weeks, had to quit due to severe redness of my eyes. It didn't do anything for me. After 16 weeks eyelashes should have been 18 percent darker. I've heard that melitane almost doubles the amount of pigmentation so it must be way more potent.

@BoB.org

does the mt2 darken the gray or white hairs on your beard or just the pigmented ones?

So instead of being out at the bars like most 28 year olds on a Saturday night, I'm browsing the internet for a gray hair cure...and I come across this...

http://www.professionalsolutions.net/professional-skin-care-reverse-grey-hair-serum.html

A reversing grey hair serum, available in the US, that contains...Melitane!! Under the ingredients list, it shows Glycerin (and) Water (and) Dextran (and) Acetyl Hexapeptide-1, which is exactly the INCI name for Melitane on the Lucas Meyer website.

Their website seems pretty reputable, has a long list of products, and doesn't reek of the Go Away Grey-type cheapness.

Unless I'm missing something, this is the kind of thing we've been looking for. A US version of Altris Gel. Thoughts?

Expect a lot of those products to start showing up on Amazon and ebay now that word is out about melitane. The same thing happened with the peptide matrixyl 3000, you can get the concentrated version of that too.

All these so-called "companies" are doing is buying the same exact GL200 peptide that sartios is selling then making creams or whatever with it, and probably at a ratio of 1 to 50 or less. You're better off imo mixing your own batch together, then you know what's in it and that you have the desired strength.

@stefanovic, thanks for your feedback regarding latisse, I wondered if anyone had tried it and had results.

@Danro: it's a bit suspicious that they don't mention the amount of melitane used. It's probably so much more expensive than creating your own batch.
It reminds me of expensive vitamin C skin creams. They use very small amounts so it doesnt work, when you create your own serum it does work.
No one wants to end up saying: I've tried it without results just because you havent used the desired strength.

Their directions call for twice daily application yet the bottle is only 10mls. That would last 7 days or less. So they want you to spend $28.00 a week and you don't even know the melitane strength is? Talk about taking advantage of people.

First of all Altris gel only recommends applying it 2 or 3 times a week. But even if you start out once a day making your own solution of 60mls that should last months. 3mls of the concentrated GL200 into 60mls of vehicle is .05% while 6mls is 1%. I'm beginning at .05% to see if there's any response, if not then I'll raise it to 1%.

Another route that would be worth following ( but let's first stick to PC and melitane) is the coleus forskohlii route which was proven in many pubmed studies to increase melanin production.
And to elaborate on the 10 ml bottle, there is a product available named talika lipocils expert containing coleus forskohlii, it's supposed to darken lashes by 50 percent and light, white and blonde lashes by 100 percent. The problem is: the coleus forskohlii is just one of many ingredients it contains and even after contacting the company they couldnt tell me how much they had used. It didn't work but according to me it had nothing to do with the coleus but with the fact that the dosage was way too low.
I contacted a researcher from danafarber and he said it should work but as nothing was commercially available he couldnt give me any further details. So it's probably just a commercial company having purchased it in bulk and using low percentages of the active ingredient ( in many cases too low)

In the end you have a beautiful bottle and a good smell, but that's about it.

Same thing for melanotan. You can buy vials from labs and it costs you around 10 dollars and then you see you can still buy it from private suppliers for 50 dollars, they promise their product is better but in fact they have just stocked up in bulk and make tons of money because people believe its actually better.
