Africans are inventing different products to help solve problems associated with health care, and hygiene in our communities.
We need to take good care of our bodies, but there are times when we get too busy with business activities, and we have limited time to take our baths.
There's an entrepreneur around Motetema, in South Africa, who invented the idea of bathing without using water. He made a gel that works as a substitute for a hygienic bath.
It serves as a replacement for soap, or water. It's like a body cream that you can apply to your body. This can help a lot of people who don't have the opportunity of getting clean water.
Ludwick Marishane is from cape Town, in South Africa. He went to the University of Cape Town to study commerce, and was one of the best students in school.
He created the dry bath gel, when he was still in school, and was 17 years old.
The dry bath gel can be used in times of emergency, when you need to quickly clean your body without going to the bathroom.
It's a body lotion that you just apply on your skin to disinfect any germs on your body, and you can do this without using water, or bathing soap.
It's very easy, fast to use for people who are not always indoors, especially for people who travel for a camp vacation.
Ludwick Marshane said he was inspired by some of his colleagues, who were very lazy to have their bath. The product works like a moisturizer, and can be used on any type of skin.
After Ludwick Marshane created his dry bath lotion, he won an award, and was given a cash prize of $10,000 to start up his business.
