For people who don’t have time to bathe or access to fresh water, a South African college student has a solution: a shower gel users simply rub onto their skin. One small packet replaces one bath, and users never need any water.
Ludwick Marishane’s inspiration was a lazy friend, but his invention will be a boon to people who live in areas where clean water is in short supply.
The gel, called DryBath, kills germs, moisturizes the skin and exudes a pleasant, light smell, unlike hand sanitizers, according to Marishane’s website, Headboy Industries. The gel is packaged in small, easy-to-open sachets that were a South African invention.
Marishane got the idea to sell individual packets when he learned from mentors that the world’s poorest people buy things in very small quantities, such as one cigarette at a time as opposed to a pack or a carton, he said in a presentation.
