World's First Drinkable Sunscreen Introduced

Posted: Updated:

SAVANNAH, GA (WSAV) -- Too much sun exposure is bad for our skin. It leads to sunburn, and it can even be deadly. However, many of us still don't use it.

But, using sunscreen just got a little easier...possibly.

Harmonized H2O UV claims to have developed the world's first drinkable SPF.

The company says once you ingest the liquid, the molecules vibrate on the skin, canceling out 97 percent of UVA and UVB rays.

The liquid sunscreen is on sale now for about $30 for a 100 ml bottle.

There are two types - "tanning" and "non tanning". The former allows users to achieve a tan while being protected from harmful sun rays.

There is a catch though. The company admits that none of its claims have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

According to directions for use, from the company's website: Take 2ml every 4 hours while in the sun (preferably with 2+ oz of water). Wait 1 hour before exposure to the sun. Monitor sun exposure carefully. Take second dose if still in sun 3 hours after first dose. For extended intense exercise outdoors, use alternate protection after 30-40 minutes.

The product's inventor claims just a teaspoon offers three hours of sun protection.
