KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Dr. Daniel Aires, a dermatologist at the University of Kansas Hospital, says the best way to protect your skin from the sun is to cover it with clothing or a hat and sunscreen.

When he heard about drinkable sunscreen, made by Harmonized H2O, Dr. Aires was skeptical.

On its website, the company claims the harmonized water is a combination of waters that contain different vibrational frequencies. The company claims those different frequencies harmonize the internal imbalances in the body. Basically, the company claims one of its harmonized water products protects your skin from UV rays.

The company says you can use 2 mL every three hours for it to be effective. Dr. Aires says if the water could actually prevent sun damage, it'd be revolutionary.

"If anyone had figured out a way to make water vibrate and cancel out radiation, that person would be up for a Nobel Prize, they wouldn't be trying to sell drinkable sunscreens," said Dr. Daniel Aires.

Dr. Aires says he doesn't recommend people try this product unless it's tested and proven to be effective by a reputable scientific study.

Harmonized H2O sells water for other kinds of skin conditions including acne and rosacea. FOX 4 received a statement from Dr. Ben Johnson, the creator of Harmonized H2O, he says his company has been selling waters with scalar waves for seven years with about a 90-percent success rate in each treatment category and the company offers a money-back guarantee if it doesn't.

He also says the product was tested on 50 people in extended periods of sun exposure before it was sold.
