(KPNX) -- The days of asking a friend to rub sunscreen on your back could soon be a thing of the past.

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

"Harmonized Water" promises their drinkable sunscreen will "assist with sun exposure" by neutralizing UVA and UVB radiation.
Dermatologists are skeptical.

"I just do not personally feel that it would work," says Dr. Jayshri Gamoth.

The drinkalbe sunscreen is not FDA approved or scientifically tested in any way.  There are also numerous restrictions in the fine print: don't eat a meal before taking it, don't exercise or it may not work right, and others.

"Harmonized Water" sells several different versions of their water to treat for all sorts of ailments from joint health to low testosterone.
