No water shower
A 22-year-old South African developed a gel said to kill 99.9% of bacteria and can be applied directly on the skin as if it were a regular moisturizer.

Why it matters
Ludwick Marishane had the idea for a DryBath when a friend suggested the idea of having a product that didn’t require him to bathe. The use of the product goes beyond being slightly lazy; airlines, military and people who don’t have easy access to water have seen the benefits of this product. This brings us back to the source of innovation: the best ideas often come from the need for something useful. Are we looking for good ideas in the right place?
