Tanning pills don’t really contain melanin or stimulate melanin production. Instead, they simply make the skin appear darker through the effect of a colouring called canthaxanthin. Canthaxanthin is a pigment found in nature, but it can also be used as a tanning agent. However, it can have side effects such as causing eye disorders, so is best avoided especially at high quantities.
