Melanin is found in the pineal gland. The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. Melanin is not only present in the skin, eyes, hair. It can also be found in the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, thymus gland, and adrenal gland. Also in the viscera, including the heart, liver, arteries, the muscles. Melanin acts as a filter to prevent damage to the delicate deeper layers of the skin, by penetration of ultraviolet light. Basically melanin is a natural sun blocker in the sense that it absorbs the sun and its nutriments without causing damage internally or externally. Contrary to popular believe the sun is black people’s number one source of life in my opinion. We cannot get damaged from the sun. Our bodies were made to soak up all the light, energy, and vitamins from the sun as a source of power and strength. So I would highly recommend sitting out in the sun WITHOUT sunscreen to bathe in natural vitamin D, the way God intended it to be.
Our skin, remarkably thin and amazingly complex, is our body’s largest organ. Skin absorbs everything we put on it including toxic air and chemicals, it then transfers directly into our bloodstream which and the result is extremely hazardous. Using 100% organic products eliminates dangerous chemical intake and naturally moisturizes and heals damaged skin. Applying organic products into your daily life will ultimately transition you into a more healthier life.
