I’m always trying to keep you all apprised of the latest and greatest products out there, but there’s one that I’ve been holding as a secret the last few years. When using sunscreen on my family, I always make sure that I have Osmosis UV Neutralizer on hand. This innovative sunscreen is not applied to the skin, instead you DRINK it. Yes, I said… drink…
Basically, the way it works is that you drink 2ml (preferably in 2 oz of water) one hour before exposure and then reuse every 3-4 hours all day. There are 2 formulations, one that allows a little tan to break through and another that completely blocks the suns’ rays.
How Does It Work?
Well, it’s crazy complicated but the science behind it is that everything has a frequency and they have infused the opposing frequency into the formula, temporarily blocking the frequency of damaging sun exposure.

How Do I Use It?
This product is fantastic for baseball games, a couple hours at the pool and more. In my family we rely on it for the first couple hours then I prefer to use a little traditional sunscreen on top if we are out for hours. It’s ease of use is amazing and my kids prefer over any other sunscreen options.
Does It Really Work?
So the reason that I don’t carry it in office or talk about it all of the time is that it works…for the most part. I think there is a science to making it effective like taking it on an empty stomach and definitely giving it an hour to kick in. But also, my husband has a crazy metabolism and so he uses the product up faster than I or even the kids do. Because of that he needs regular protection faster than we do. This variable AND the companies own study about the product only kept 16 out of 24 participants from burning makes me have slight hesitations about it. I absolutely use it and find it great but it doesn’t have a 100% success rate. But I do strongly believe that this will be the way sunscreen goes and why not tell you about this innovator.
