Any Dermatologists Here Who Can Address Skin Tone?

Reading academic articles on skin tone the consensus seems to be that the color of humans is depends partly on the ratio of brownish black eumelanin and the reddish yellow pheomelanin.*

But are those accurate descriptions of the pigments? Does the pigment produced by the melanocytes have a consistent and invariable color or does the color range depending on genetics, biology, and health?

*The other main determinants of skin tone are usually listed as hemoglobin in capillaries and various reflective effects of the skin layers.
