Ludwick Marishane

African Inventors

June 25, 2013
Ludwick Marishane is a 23 year-old South African student who has invented DryBath, a clear topical gel applied to the skin that yields the same result as soap and water. In other words, DryBath provides a new way to take a bath without water.

The inventor conducted research on the Internet, via his mobile phone, to conceive a formula that would bring his concept to life. Within six months, he had his formula and went on to have DryBath patented.

DryBath is odorless and, when applied to the skin, creates a biodegradable cleansing film with moisturizers for the skin.
With this invention Ludwick Marishane was the winner of the 2011 Global Student Entrepreneur of the Year Award, one of the most prestigious awards for undergraduate students who are aspiring entrepreneurs.

Now, DryBath is a commercial product catching the interest of major global airlines for passengers to use on flights and armies for deployed soldiers, among others.

Ludwick Marishane is the founder of Headboy Industries LLC.
