Will drinkable sunscreen protect your skin from harmful UV rays?

If you could drink sunscreen to get your protection from the sun, would you?

Summer is finally here, which means beach days, picnics, and sunburns. But is slathering on copious amounts of sticky sunscreen a thing of the past?

A U.S. company claims to have created drinkable sun protection that supposedly works by isolating frequencies needed to neutralize UVA and UVB rays.

UV Neutralizer is part of the Harmonized Water collection, which is said to work on the premise that different parts of the body operate on unique frequencies and need to be “neutralized” to correct imbalances. 

The company claims that the UV Neutralizer elixir will neutralize UV radiation by using a combination of different waters that carry vibrational frequencies, the Huffington Post reports. Users are to take 2ml of the elixir every four hours during sun exposure and to not eat or drink while using the sunscreen.

The new product is a tempting solution, but does UV Neutralizer really work?

Probably not, says a recent article at Jezebel.com. Dr. Jayshri Gamoth expressed her skepticism of the product, which has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the U.S. and hasn’t been scientifically tested. 

Harmonized Water sells a range of waters for everything from digestive health, hangovers and fatigue to hair loss and muscle soreness. A 100 ml bottle of UV Neutralizer retails for $30. 

Would you try drinkable sunscreen?
