    Great presentation and story. I'm sure he has a bright future.

    Just a little confused as I thought waterless handwash had been out for years.

    Or was he the inventor of that too?

    Not sure mate, but the article is only a year old and I couldn't find anything through search on site and was surprised.

    Edit
    Are you sure you aren't referring to things like what they use in hospitals or just temporary anti-bacterial / antiseptic applications.

    Probably, but we use it for camping. Same basic premise though I would have thought.

    Not this, but quick google...

    So, what would be the basic ingredients inside this waterless bathing product?

    Water (the main ingredient)
    A few thing to make it into a pleasant cream to apply
    Bug / bacteria killer

    Some is certainly alcohol based, which evaporates.

    The jury is out on it's effectiveness though reading up on it.
    eg:
    Why hand gel is a waste of money | Mail Online

    I wonder if he has actually cracked the problem with his bathing gel?
