Dear Chelsea,

I am going to refer you to the following recent answers of MAD Scientist Network questions on Pigment/Melanin in Skin/Eyes/Body, from Dr. Gil Stoewsand of Cornell Univ., & Lightbrown Eyecolor, from Tom Stickel of Indiana Univ., which address this topic in detail.

Thank you for the good question,

Jeff Buzby, Ph.D.
