Melanin is produced by melanocytes, which are located in the basal layer of the epidermis. The stimulation of melanocytes to produce melanin is done by melanocortin hormone. Melanin absorbs harmful UV radiation, transforming them into harmless heat through a process called “ultrafast internal conversion.” By this process, the melanin can reduces the generation of free radicals to a minimum, and so prevents indirect DNA damage which can produce malignant skin melanomas.
