SoaPen Inc

SoaPen is a portable, cost- effective, soap-crayon with which children can draw on their dry hands. This drawing lathers up when taken under water. By removing every trace of the drawing, children wash their hands for the ideal span of 20 - 40 seconds. Hand washing is known as a life saving do-it-yourself vaccine and can dramatically reduce infant mortality rates in developing countries. With a hybrid model, we will donate SoaPen to schools and hospitals in low income communities.
Promoting better hygiene practices among children around the world through play.
