OKLAHOMA (KOKH/WACH) -- Wouldn't it be nice if sun protection was as easy as taking a drink?
"I wanted to find a better product and, in my heart, I believe this product is actually better than the average sunscreens today," said Dr. Ben Johnson, President of Harmonized H2O and creator of a drinkable sunscreen.
Dr. Johnson says his water contains cancellation waves that spread through your body and cancel the sun's rays.
"Basically the water in your skin is vibrating cancellation waves," he said.
"He will probably sell a lot of it and make a lot of money, but I would be really worried," said Dermatologist, Dr. Susannah Collier. "I would not give it to my daughter or my aunt or any of my patients."
Dr. Collier says it's great that people are thinking outside the box when it comes to sun protection, but drinkable sunscreen isn't the way to go. She says even sunscreen itself is far from perfect.
"The basic thing is sunscreen is not a perfect sun screen. Shade, hats, clothing are better than sunscreen," Dr. Collier said.
Dr. Johnson says he's not sure if his drinkable sunscreen can be found in Oklahoma yet, but
