UV soap

According to the World Health Organization, washing hands is one of the most effective actions you can take to reduce the spread of pathogens, including the Covid-19 virus. However, hundreds of millions of people in Africa lack access to clean water. In response, the designers have developed a UV soap that lets people wash their hands without water. It uses harmless UV rays to kill pathogens and can be used intuitively in a way similar to real soap.

JURY STATEMENT

UV Soap allows for an entirely new way of washing hands without water. It has a simple form and provides a clear solution to manual hygiene needs in water-poor environments.

WINNER STATEMENT

We are very happy to receive the award. We hope that safe.U will help people around the world maintain basic hygiene standards and protect themselves from viruses.
