“I think it is important to note that we have been selling this remarkable product for about 5 years,” Johnson said in a statement to BuzzFeed. “We have had thousands of re-orders. Surely people understand that as a successful skincare company it would make no sense that we would sell people a fake sun protection water….and if we did, how long does one think those sales would last?”


While there’s literally no scientific evidence to substantiate Johnson’s claims that his scam water can protect the user from UV rays, that apparently hasn’t stopped customers from paying several human dollars for the products and leaving five-star reviews on Amazon.

“It’s crazy...But it really works!” One such review reads. While it is indeed crazy, the drinkable sunscreen most certainly does not work.


“It’s flat-out dangerous to consumers to make them think without any proof that this water protects them from what we know is proven—potentially cancer-causing exposure to the sun,” Iowa attorney general Tom Miller said in a statement.
