        Great article. One question: since it encourages melanin production, does it make your skin darker too?

          2. It may be due to the copper in molasses. If it is affecting the skin how much are they taking? I know people who use molasses as a part of their diet (sweeteners and cooking) It did not affect the melanin in their skin but it thickened their hair ( their hair is dark brown ) and they never went grey.
