Hexapeptide-2 is a skin lightening peptide to brighten skin and even-out skin tone. This peptide obtained by synthesis acts as an antagonist to α-MSH. The binding of α-MSH to its receptors mediates skin pigmentation. It competes for α-MSH binding to its receptors, thereby decreasing melanin synthesis. Hexapeptide-2 induces a decrease in the melanin content in epidermal cells.
