Melanin Is Extracted And Exploited For Technology Upgrades, Financial Gains, And Military Power But Where Are They Getting It?

Melanin is extracted and exploited by the government, scientists, and corporations for technology upgrades, financial gains and military power. Where are they getting the melanin from?

Who Is Using Melanin For Technology Advancements, Financial Gains, And Military Power?

The United States Army and Navy, possibly other branches as well, are thoroughly interested in using melanin for military applications.

International companies such as VWR, a subsidiary of Avantor, is selling melanin. VWR is a “trusted global partner to customers and suppliers in the life sciences and advanced technologies & applied materials industries.” They offer an “extensive portfolio of mission-critical products, services and solutions to laboratory and production customers in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, industrial, education, government and healthcare industries”. One of those products is Melanin, for $460.53 per gram.

According to an article published by in 2016, “a team of researchers from Carnegie Mellon University has discovered that the chemical structure of melanin on a macromolecular scale exhibits, amongst other shapes, a four-membered ring—in other words, a chemical structure that may be conducive to creating certain kinds of batteries based on natural melanin pigments.”

Scientists are now doing new experiments on melanin: hoping to discover a way to manipulate the ‘transmutable dark matter found in all living things’ (melanin) to create advanced – melanin-based – robots and implant technologies. Essentially, using the essence of what makes people “black” or “brown”, replicating that biological archetype, and using that research to create the “cyborg” technology, consciously or unconsciously, attempting to even the score between the people with melanin and the people without it.

In an article titled “Will cyborgs be made from melanin? Pigment breakthrough enables biocompatible electronics” by ‘Frontiers’ you could see the desperate enthusiasm to discover how to manipulate melanin:

“Our process produced a billion-fold increase in the electrical conductivity of eumelanin,” say study senior authors Dr. Alessandro Pezzella of University of Naples Federico II and Dr. Paolo Tassini of Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development. “This makes possible the long-anticipated design of melanin-based electronics, which can be used for implanted devices due to the pigment’s biocompatibility.“

Melanin is in high demand.

Why Is Melanin Being Extracted?

Melanin is worth more than gold.

Melanin, the biochemical substance found in people with “color” and nature, literally has more value than Gold. 

APMEX, the leading Precious Metals dealer in the United States, lists the price of Gold at $57.74 per gram. While VWR sells Melanin for $460.53 per gram.

The Naval Research Laboratory reports, “Melanin is a pigment ubiquitous in nature and is found in all types of living organisms. Due to its unique physicochemical properties, high biocompatibility and biostability, there has been a rapidly increasing interest in the use of melanin for bioelectronic, biomedical and theranostic applications.”

An article on PR Newswire submitted by River Road Research explains, “Melanin, which is the primary determinant of skin color, also has various applications as a compound in ultra-violet light and radiation protection, anti-oxidants, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.  The most tantalizing applications currently in development are organic battery technologies.”

There are plenty of reasons why there is a high demand for melanin.

Where Is Melanin Being Harvested And Extracted From?

Melanin can be extracted from humans, animals, and plants.

The most potent source of melanin is black and brown people. However, it is unlikely melanin extraction from humans will become an accepted social reality. So if melanin was to be extracted from humans on a regular basis it would have to be discreet to avoid public outrage.

This is why the majority of melanin used in modern research and technological developments comes from either animals or plants rather than humans. Either that, or they manufacture synthetic melanin which is a whole lot less potent.

In 2015, River Road Research, a technology development company, was awarded a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to produce melanin from food waste and use it to develop “organic battery technologies”. River Road Research claims, “Process will enhance production of melanin for a wide range of business applications as well as reduce environmental impacts of food waste.”

The entities who desire melanin would much rather prefer a more potent source to satisfy the demand for full-scale production of melanin based technologies.

Being that we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that a global system of white supremacy exists in the world, would it be safe to assume the powers that be have little to no interest preserving melanated life? If that’s the case then they probably wouldn’t have any problems harvesting potent melanin from black and brown people, as opposed to less effective melanins available. Especially if they are already racist and understand that melanin is worth more than gold.

William John Young, an English Biochemist, wrote a report in 1920 titled “The Extraction Of Melanin From The Skin With Dilute Alkali” where he details step-by-step how to extract melanin from black people.

“It was found that if the skin were soaked in boiling water, the outer layer, which contained practically all of the pigment, could be readily removed by scraping. This layer (200g.) was washed with alcohol and ether to remove grease, and was boiled with 100c. of N/20 sodium hydroxide for one hour under a reflux condenser. It was allowed to settle and the dark liquid decanted and filtered.”


In 1940, Ben Dawes of the Department of Zoology, University of London also details how to extract melanin from animals. The process is similar to the Williams John Young’s.

According to the Statista Research Department there was over 200,000 Black Americans reported missing in 2019, it can be speculated there must be a connection between the increased interest in melanin and the growing number of missing Black people in America. Especially if we know that synthetic melanin is insufficient and there has been a detailed instruction manual on how to extract potent melanin from black and brown people since at least the 1920’s.
