The Real Story Behind The New Drinkable Sunscreen
Is drinkable sunscreen a genius invention - or an unsafe fad that's not be trusted? Here, both sides weigh in...
As the weather heats up, it’s time to start thinking about sun protection. And it seems this season, everyone is buzzing about a curious new product on the market that’s being dubbed as the very first ‘drinkable sunscreen.’
Harmonized H2O is a form of bottled water that’s branded as a ‘UV Neutralizer.’ The product was developed in the U.S. by Dr Ben Johnson and promises a UV defense comparable to an SPF 30 sun cream.
We have to admit: The thought of just downing a bottle of water before hitting the beach and being able to forget about sun cream is pretty appealing. Goodbye, weird tan lines. So long, sunburns in the those tricky places you missed with the cream. See you later, awkwardly asking your mates to do your back…
Well, If you think it sounds too good to be true, you’re not alone. Since news of the product made the rounds, it’s received loads of backlash from sceptics. To get the true story, we consulted two top skincare experts, as well as the creator himself – and, unsurprisingly, they paint two very different pictures.
The description for Harmonized H2O – which has not been tested or approved by any regulatory bodies – reads as follows: ‘This is simply purified water imprinted with unique vibrational waves which isolate out the precise frequencies needed to protect you from UV rays.’
We asked Dr Adam Friedmann, a leading dermatologist at The Harley Street Dermatology Clinic, to weigh in on the possibility of such an invention. ‘Potentially a consumable product might be formulated, but I suspect it would only protect from UV penetration by causing increased melanin production,’ he says.
