This technology would pertain to new types of sunscreens for humans, such as sunscreen pills, or longer acting sunscreens, or permanent sunscreens. Sunscreen pills would pertain to a chemical compound that can be taken before you go to the beach, or wherever it is sunny, that would apply compounds that protect your entire body from the sun for a specific period. When the protection begins to wear off, you could simply take another sunscreen pill. Another form of sunscreen, which could also be a pill, would be longer-acting or permanent sunscreens. These would act on the body for more than four hours, or quite possibly permanently, to protect the skin from the harmful UV rays from the sun.
