Drinkable sunscreen may soon be available at a store in your neighborhood. A cosmetics company in the United States just announced a sunscreen lotion that you can drink, but some experts claim the product is just a publicity stunt and a gimmick.
Osmosis Skincare said Harmonized H20 UV offers up to a factor 30 level protection from the sun. The cosmetics company said that once their drinkable sunscreen is ingested molecules inside the elixir “vibrate on the skin” and thwart 97 percent of UVB and Uva rays. The Harmonized H20 bottle maintains the product inside will “neutralize UV radiation” and permits up to 30 times more than normal exposure to the sun.
The cosmetics company was founded by Dr. Ben Johnson. He urged people to ingest 2ml of liquid every four hours while outdoors in the sunshine. There are two varieties of Harmonized H20 available, the tan and non-tan version. The tan version allegedly permits those who toss back some of the drinkable sunscreen to garner beautifully tanned skinned without being subjected to a burn or redness.
The drinkable sunscreen has not yet been endorsed by any dermatologist board or body, but the Osmosis Skincare website does boast many customer testimonials. Harmonized H20 sells for about $30 per bottle.
An excerpt from the drinkable sunscreen consumer warning on the Osmosis Skincare company website:
“Wait 1 hour before exposure to the Sun [after taking 2ml with water] and monitor Sun exposure carefully. Take second does if still in sun 3 hours after first dose. For extended intense exercise outdoors or if taking sun-sensitizing medications, use alternate protection after 30-40 minutes.”
Dr. Ben Johnson also said that “frequencies” which have been imprinted on the Harmonized H20 water vibrate the UVA and UVB rays before they can “even hit your skin.”
The drinkable sunscreen company founder also added:
“This is similar to the amount of UV reflection created by SPF 30 titanium/zinc sunblocks but distinctly better than UVB chemical sunscreens which prevent certain damage that leads to visible, painful inflammation reaction we identify as sun damage.”
