Drinkable Sunscreen?

Filed under: Health,Internet — Edgar (aka MrConsumer) @ 5:59 am

Harmonized Water  Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to slather oily sunscreen all of your body when you go to the beach?

Sensing a business opportunity, a company called Osmosis Skincare and its founder Dr. Ben Johnson, created “Harmonized Water.” You are directed to add 2 ml. of this specially infused water to two ounces of regular water, and drink it an hour before going out in the sun.

The makers claim:

“Achieve UV protection before the sun even hits you with our innovative new technology that isolates the precise frequencies needed to neutralize UVA and UVB.”

“Allows for increased sun exposure (30x more than normal)”

How exactly does this work?

“It helps to balance tissue disharmonies by delivering beneficial radio frequencies to the cells using water as a carrier. The frequencies we use have been determined by a proprietary math formula that allows us to reverse engineer most substances to determine their actual vibrational rate. We then imprint these frequencies on water molecules by forming standing waves (waves that pulse from rest). We can communicate to the cell with a language that is better recognized and more specific than the frequencies of commonly used remedies.”

Did you follow all that mumbo-jumbo?

According to scores of testimonials on the company’s website, the product really works (surprise)! However, the American Academy of Dermatology felt compelled to issue a public warning about this product last month:


Recently, there has been media coverage about “drinkable sunscreen” that claims to provide sun protection through the ingestion of water that allegedly has been infused with electromagnetic waves.

The American Academy of Dermatology (Academy) wants to alert consumers that this drink should not be used as a replacement for sunscreen or sun-protective clothing. There is currently no scientific evidence that this “drinkable sunscreen” product provides any protection from the sun’s damaging UV rays.

Sunscreen is the only form of sun protection that is regulated by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 has been scientifically proven to prevent sunburn and reduce the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun. The Academy continues to recommends that you still seek shade, wear sun-protective clothing and wide-brimmed hat, and apply a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

So, save your $30 for three ounces of this suntan miracle.

  1. Looking at the Harmonized H20 product page, it seems that they have found they neutralizing frequency for just about everything. I’m surprised they didn’t just go ahead and toss one for Cancer on their website.

    I’m all for people being able to buy whatever products they want, but I don’t like it when companies are able to make claims that are likely not true (or at least not proven). I don’t think the FDA would bother with this one though. It’s a shame too.

  3. Oh, surrrrrre. “Radio frequencies”…molecular imprinting on my molecules? The Doc and his assistant were hawking this elixir from the back of a wagon at this weekend’s country fair. I’ll pass.

  4. Without having to read any fine print, it should only take someone with half a brain to realize that this miracle product is nothing more than a scam. Unfortunately, the abundance of people who flock to these type of products will most likely make the company millions.

  5. Peter, you’d think people would realize that all religions are just scams, but look at the billions that flock to them.

  6. I think we just veered away from “consumer news”, as we understand it in the context of Mouse Print. This must be Incendiary Monday.

  7. Once again, all the proof we need that people will buy (and believe) ANYTHING!
