No water shower

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.  DryBath is the world’s first shower gel that doesn’t require water. For every sachet purchased by its corporate clients, DryBath will offer a free or subsidised sachet to its global charity partners.
 

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?

Pins and needles DIY

The New York College of Health Professions has created a wirelessly-controlled wearable skin patch that is able to deliver acupuncture-like treatment on demand.


People can already buy adhesive patches that relieve aches by putting pressure on acupuncture points. However this new patch uses electrical currents to provide stimulation triggered whether by touching it, through a wireless remote control or by scheduling pre-determined electrical pulses. The new device is meant to alleviate pain between acupuncture visits with a therapist.

The skincare pillow

SilkPerfect have developed a 100% pure silk pillow case which claims to benefit the user’s skin and hair. The silk is made up from strings of amino acids, which have the same ph as human skin.
