A man is being sued for creating and selling what he claims is “drinkable” sunscreen. It’s called Osmosis Skincare and Harmonized Water. He says that it helps to protect those who drink it from UV rays, even though it’s not applied to the skin, by using “form radio frequencies called scalar waves.”
Some have said that this product is obviously dangerous, sparking the recent lawsuit. It doesn’t look like it’s dangerous to drink, though. The allegations are that he fraudulently tells consumers that it protects them from the sun. The lawsuit and reports claim this is false and that scientific evidence doesn’t back it up, meaning people who use it could be exposing themselves to serious sun risks — like skin cancer — while thinking they are safe.
The man was asked about the product, which does get some five star reviews from people who say it does work, and he noted that it had been on the market for around five years. He said thousands of people had ordered it multiple times. He said it made no sense for a successful company to sell fake items. He also said that, if he was selling a fraudulent item, the sales wouldn’t have lasted as long as they did.
Of course, the fact that people buy something is not scientific proof that it works, which is exactly why the lawsuit was started.
If you’ve been harmed by a fraudulent product, it’s important to know what legal options you have. Those facing high medical bills, for example, may be able to seek out compensation for those costs.
