So you're saying everybody's free to drink sunscreen?

So...will this finally turn my penis into something women will actually enjoy?

Would be great if it actually works.

You drink it and it makes it to your skin in a timely manner with no adverse effects. Not approved or tested by the FDA.

For 100ml bottle - you drink 2ml every 4 hours, so you'd get 25 days in the sun out of one bottle.

I kept reading "suncream" as "sunscream."


Which is what you'll be doing after a day on the beach drinking suncream.

How can they get away with this shiat?

Honestly, I hate audiophile-trolls selling magic stones and voodoo cables but this shiat is harmful.

FTA: "Sue Devitt, a make up artist to stars including Sarah Jessica Parker, was one of the first to develop a drinkable beauty elixir..."

I beg to disagree.

lindseyp: How can they get away with this shiat?

So much this.  There used to be a time (belt, onion, etc.) where we recognized that without some level of regulation, scumbags would take advantage of human nature and ignorance to rip people off, so we put in a few laws to regulate advertising and product safety.  Nothing crazy, just common sense to keep people from doing shiat like putting radium in "medicine", requring people to prove their claims rather than just make shiat up, etc.

What ever happened to that common sense?  When did the advertisers win?  Seriously, if those farking "Excite" commercials were allowed for five years, clearly the regulators are just phoning it in.

FTFA: it comes in two forms - "tanning" and "non tanning", the former allowing users to achieve a tan while being protected from harmful sun rays.

Why do I get the feeling that Dr Ben Johnson didn't get his doctorate in knowing what a tan is?

Today we salute you, Mr. 80 SPF Sun Block Wearer.
(Mr. 80 SPF Sun Block Wearer)

There are 24 hours in a day. You're wearing 80-hour protection. If the sun fails to go down, you'll be ready.
(Don't forget the moonlight)

Your coconut-scented force field blocks out all the sun's rays ... and any stray rays from another sun ... in another galaxy.
(You're a STAR!!)

30 SPF? Please! You might as well be wearing cooking oil.
(Something smells delicious)

So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, Mr. 80 SPF Sun Block Wearer. In fact, feel free to crack one open at high noon ... in the middle of the Sahara Desert.

I'm certain there are no adverse effects at all to this. I trust them with my health. They're not doing this for the money.

That's ok, according to the 80s, when the ozone layer disappears, we'll need this to stay out in the sun for 30 minutes

Remember Canthaxanthin from the 1980's? Take it in pill form, and it turns your skin orange, maybe offering some UV protection as well. Thing is, it also precipitates out in your retina. Not so good.

So, yeah, lots of luck finding something ingestible that only comes out on your skin, and doesn't have any harmful side effects on the entire rest of your body.

Oh, and the word "vibrates" in the advertising copy is pretty much a bulletproof BS flag for anything having to do with nutrition or cosmetics.

While I understand your needs to make everything political I was mostly suggesting that SOME testing is better than no testing.

But please rant on. It wasn't over when the German's bombed pearl harbor either.

My guess is it uses magnetic technology.

If the product has any legitimacy, it is probably PABA;

Wiki - PABA (4-Aminobenzoic acid) Nutritional supplement:
Despite the lack of any recognized syndromes of PABA deficiency in humans, many claims of benefit are made by commercial suppliers of PABA as a nutritional supplement. Benefit is claimed for fatigue, irritability, depression, weeping eczema (moist eczema), scleroderma (premature hardening of skin), patchy pigment loss in skin, and premature grey hair. It is also sometimes claimed that oral supplements of PABA can make the skin less sensitive to sun damage.

IIRC,  Studies have shown this does have some benefit, as in, it wouldn't hurt to take some PABA before a day at the beach. It would be foolish to rely on it on its own. Besides, lotion rub downs are fun. Who'd want to put an end to them?
 
2014-05-19 10:29:22 AM  
Does it have alcohol in it?  Because it would prevent a lot more sunburn if it did.
