The inventor conducted research on the Internet, via his mobile phone when he was a student, 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. He is the founder and Managing Director of Headboy Industries LLC.
