A South African man named Ludwick Marishane, has invented the world’s first waterless body wash called Drybath.
According to him, he said he was moved to invent the product because his best friend( name withheld) was too lazy to take his bath when there were still in high school.
In an interview he granted, Ludwick Marishane revealed that the idea of inventing a gel that cleans the skin without needing water came up when his friend asked him “Why doesn’t someone create a product that one can apply on one’s body that can cleanse the body so one doesn’t have to bathe?
Ludwick Marishane admitted that the idea came and he decided to make it a reality. He revealed that it took him barely six months to create the product, Drybath.
Due to his experience and knowledge he got from living in poor rural areas, Marishane made a decision never to market the product in large quantities rather he decided to sell it in smaller quantities to enable poor individuals have access to the product.
Four years after he developed the product, Ludwick Marishane won the organisation’s Global Student Entrepreneur of the year which came with a cash prize of $10,000 to support him.
This invention has made him become one of the youngest millionaires in Africa. Isn’t it smart to see the problem at hand and creating solution?
