Nonapeptide-1, also called Melanostatine 5, is a propriety peptide that was originally developed for its antimicrobial activities. Animal research has revealed, however, that nonapeptide-1 can inhibit the synthesis of melanin, which makes it of interest for treating certain skin conditions. Animal models suggest that nonapeptide-1 can reduce synthesis of melanin and help decrease skin pigmentation to a substantial degree.
Nonapeptide-1 is a skin lightening peptide, derived from the melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH). It prevents the activity of tyrosine in the melanocytes, melanin synthesis inhibition and helps to even out your skin tone by lessening hyper-pigmentation. This process reduces the formation of unwanted pigmentation, allowing for the control over skin tone and brown spots.
Nonapeptide-1 is of primary research interest for its ability to reduce hyperpigmentation by inhibiting the action of tyrosinase in melanin-producing cells. The ability to regulate melanin production has potential application in a number of conditions, including photodamage of the skin.
Research also suggests that nonapeptide-1 may play a role in the central nervous system where it may act on both dopaminergic receptors and opioid receptors to modify pain signaling as well as behavior. Studies in mice support the idea that nonapeptide-1 may have central actions that affect behavior and pain.
In cosmeceutical terms, nonapeptide-1 is a radiance promoter and whitening agentv. In technical terms it is a melanin synthesis inhibitor that works by interfering with the action of tyrosinase. Tyrosinase is the primary enzyme responsible for the synthesis of melanin in specialized cells called melanocytes. Any interference with tyrosinase prevent melanocytes from producing pigmentv. By inhibiting tyrosinase, nonapeptide-1 can help to reduce pigment production in the skin in animal studies and thus lighten darker areas that have been damaged by the sun and certain diseases.
