Could this be the future of UV protection?

In a time where the conventional wisdom about the strength of sunscreens is being challenged by new evidence, could the answer to our worries about sunburn and skin cancer be assuaged with drinkable potions?

The company claims their potable product, which is called Harmonised H2O UV Protection, vibrates on the skin once ingested, canceling out up to 97% of UVA and UVB rays. The product retails at £17 ($30) for a 100mL bottle and comes in two varieties, “tanning” and “non-tanning,” the former of which is supposed to allow users to achieve a tan without the harmful side effects.
