Experts skeptical of drinkable sunscreen

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The days of applying sunscreen on your back or waiting for the lotion to dry may be a thing of the past.

One skin care company claims to have invented the first drinkable sunscreen.

Osmosis Skincare’s UV Neutralizer Harmonized Water claims to provide the equivalent of SPF 30, protecting people from 97-percent of UVA and UVB rays for up to three hours.

However, it might be a while before the 100 millileter clear liquid is on any store shelves. The product is not FDA-approved or scientifically tested.

There’s also a lot of fine print, such as not eating a meal before taking it and avoiding exercise, or it may not work correctly.

“Science has not proven for it to work. There is not a scientific method, so until the FDA approves it until we have scientific data it’s hard for me to say yes they cracked the code at this time with the information we have,” said Dermotologist Jayshri Gamoth.
