If lathering on a new coat of sunscreen every couple of hours sounds like a chore to you then you may want to check out another option. Osmosis Skincare offers a new line of drinkable sunscreen called Harmonized H20 that is said to both neutralize UV radiation and enhance the tanning effects from the sun.
Drinking sunscreen may sound odd, but the company’s website claims you can avoid a burn by simply drinking 2ml every 4 hours while outside and waiting an hour after the first glug-glug to expose yourself to the sun. The company describes the way its product works by saying it can, “Achieve UV 30 protection before the sun even hits you with our innovative new technology that isolates the precise frequencies needed to neutralize UVA and UVB.” The Harmonized H20 is available in two varieties, a “tan enhancing” and “no tan enhancing” formula.
The site also includes testimonials from satisfied customers with one user of the product writes, “"I used the UV Water in Punta Mita Mexico. I was in the pool a lot with the baby and in the sun all day and I did not burn at all. We got the nicest tan. I normally burn in 10 minutes with my white Irish skin.”
But before you swallow this sunscreen, you may want to hear some warnings from the experts. Dr. Rang Singh spoke with the Daily Telegraph about some concerns about the effectiveness of drinkable sunscreen. Dr. Singh says, “It’s just a gimmick. We know that ingestible sun products aren’t that good. To say they have changed the frequency of water molecules, well I just don’t understand how they could have done that.” Singh adds, “Everything in our body vibrates at it’s own frequency anyway and, as far as I know, nobody has found a way to change that. I wouldn’t just take these claims with a pinch of salt, I would take them with a fistful.”
