Drinkable sunscreen: The next big thing or the next big scam?

Is drinkable sunscreen the next big thing? People are intrigued, but many are quite skeptical. Osmosis Skincare has developed the product, but it doesn't sound as if everybody is convinced on this one quite yet.

Huffington Post shares that the drinkable sunscreen is said by its makers to be comparable to an SPF 30 traditional sunscreen. How does it work? Users drink the “Harmonized Water” and the Telegraph explains that the sunscreen maker claims that “molecules of the product vibrate on the skin to cancel out 97 percent” of the sun's harmful rays. Users are advised to consume 2ml of the product every four hours, preferably with water, to be effective.

So is this product for real? Critics say that this one is just a gimmick and it's worth noting that the FDA has not evaluated the claims made by Osmosis Skincare. One resource for Huffington Post went so far as to say this is “totally unsubstantiated pseudoscience” and there seems to be little, if anything, to back up the claims made by the product's makers.

While this drinkable sunscreen has been around for a bit, it's garnering headlines apparently due to some new PR efforts. At a pricetag of $30 for 3.38 ounces, it's not a particularly cheap experiement to try. It doesn't look like most potential customers are swayed by these claims, and it seems safe to say indeed that purchasers should most definitely use a great deal in caution when trying out this drinkable sunscreen.
