D2O refreshing spray.
|D2O refreshing spray.|
Oh my, what a concept! This is sold by a company that, on its website, claims it contains heavy water, whose benefits include that it evaporates more slowly than ordinary water (protecting your skin from drying out, naturally), and that it absorbs UV rays. The bottle itself lists only "Water" not specifically heavy water, but then I'm not sure what the proper FDA-approved name for heavy water would be other than "water". I doubt the FDA has really thought about it very much since heavy water is toxic and surely not allowed in foods or cosmetics. (Heavy water becomes toxic only in pretty large amounts, so if it does contain heavy water, using it probably isn't really dangerous, just a bit creepy if you ask me. The benefits are of course entirely illusionary.)
It's a guess, but I'm going to go with the assumption that they would rather risk a charge of false advertising than a charge of distributing a toxic product, so I'm listing this as containing no actual deuterium.
