Maybe we can’t speak for everyone, but it may be safe to say that there is a general distaste when it comes to the slimy feel that some sunscreens leave behind. It’s also a nuisance to have to stop lounging every so often to reapply said layer of slime, but British researchers from King’s College in London may have stumbled upon a means of creating a sunscreen pill. While studying coral, Dr. Paul Long, along with fellow researchers, believe that algae living in the coral produces a compound with a purpose not to dissimilar from sunscreen. The team is looking to biosynthetically develop the same compound to create a simple tablet or pill. While current supplements promise sun protection, they’re not recommended as replacements for sunscreen. Should the sunscreen pill see the light of day, even the most sensitive of skin types should be able to enjoy a day in the sun without the annoyance of water-resistant screens.
