One of the main concerns among health professionals is that the main ingredient activates melanocytes in the skin. These are the cells that become cancerous in malignant melanoma, so doctors fear users could in fact bring on skin cancer in the long term.

The drug, which tricks the skin into producing the dark pigment melanin, has never been licensed for use in any country. IT IS ILLEGAL!! Consequently, no one knows what a safe dose is or what long-term damage to the body such a drug might be doing.

DO NOT USE THIS TRICK TANNING PROCESS...IT IS VERY UNSAFE !!
IF you seen my dad with skin cancers all over like he has you would not even want anything that would cause you to have it. The last surgery was to remove half of his ear and almost half of his face.
He of course did not use this illegal drug to get his.
The doctor thinks it was from the oil he use to work with before he retired.
So I say, anything that is going to cause skin cancer should never be legal anywhere.

It's been around since the 50's and 60's and there are NO known medication interactions and the only side effect is that it helps you sleep a little better at night. You don't get skin cancer from these injections. If you have a family history, stay in the tanning bed or suntanning, then you probably will get it. This actually makes your skin darker naturally and helps you from getting burned as badly were you to suntan or tan in a bed.
It's very much not illegal.

If it has not been approved by the FDA here in the United States it apparently is not legal to get here in the U.S.

It doesn't sound like a wise choice to me.

If it isn't legal in the United States there wouldn't be LEGITIMATE doctors who are able to use it if a patient requests it.

How do you know that it isn't harmful? Apparently there have been no studies on this that show it is not harmful. Seems risky to just get a silly tan.

I'm just saying it wasn't harmful to my relative. I'm not saying its not harmful to anyone, nor have i looked up medical records or went on a fact finding mission because I don't plan on using it. I'm not advocating for or against it. If you want to get tan I say you get your ass outside in the sun.
