Move over AeroShots, there’s a new caffeine distribution system in town. “Sprayable Energy” is applied just like cologne, only instead of attracting women, it gives you energy. Just don’t spray it in your mouth like Binaca. 1) You’ll probably die. 2) Nobody uses Binaca anymore you creep.
Sprayable Energy is a new IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign for a caffeinated spray. It’s applied in four spritzes to the neck and gives you a solid boost of energy. So how does it work? They’re probably glad you asked.
Our active ingredient is caffeine, which can actually naturally enter your body through the skin by passing through cell membranes (caffeine is very structurally similar to nicotine – which also easily passes through cell membranes, if you’ve ever seen a nicotine patch).
So what’s our great breakthrough? Well, it turns out caffeine isn’t very soluble in water, and so it’s difficult to transport enough caffeine in a spray to have a significant effect. After months of research, we discovered we could increase caffeine’s solubility five-fold by using a simple derivative of a naturally produced amino acid, tyrosine.
I don’t remember this episode of Bill Nye, but I’ll take their word for it. At $15 for 40 doses, or 160 sprays for you weaklings, it’s almost $3 cheaper than a 5-Hour energy shot. I feel rich already.
