If it is the first time you’re using this product, start with a very low dose. This is done by taking one spray on day one and one spray on day two. Then on day number three you can take two sprays (one in each nostril) and do the same on day number four. Then increase it by one spray per day every two days, but do not exceed a total of eight sprays per day as it could make your freckles darker (something that will go away when you stop using the product). Once your tan starts to develop, reduce the dosage to one spray per nostril per day as maintenance or use slightly more for a darker colour or slightly less for a lighter colour. Please note that during the loading phase, your tan will only develop when the 30ml bottle is almost finished as the product builds up in your system. Subsequent bottles should last around a month or longer. If it is your first time using the product, use at least 10ml during the loading phase and another 10ml for maintenance.
If you have used the product before (and during the past week five days), then you can start with two sprays per day if you wish or increase it to increase your colour or decrease the dosage for less colour. Do not exceed a total of eight sprays per day. The maintenance dose is the same as above: one spray per nostril per day or every other day. The 5ml bottle is recommended for maintenance only and not for loading.
As a reference: your 30ml nasal spray bottle (90 sprays) contains exactly 10mg of Melanotan 2. So one spray per nostril (2 sprays) is equal to about 0.333mg of Melanotan 2. However, absorption using a nasal spray is around 50%, so for one spray per nostril you are actually getting 0.167mg of Melanotan 2. For the 5ml bottle, it’s half of these amounts.
Always keep your MT2 nasal spray refrigerated if possible.
