These National University of Lesotho (NUL) Industrial Chemistry Students surprised many as they showcased amazing products under a theme: Source Local, Keep it Simple.
They made shoe polish, nail polish remover, bath salts, lip balm, candies and energy drink.
Every product had to be simple to make, innovative, use locally available materials up to packging and be exceedingly good. They passed the test.
Here is the truth. Lesotho’s industrialization will not start with an Apollo to the moon. It will start with, wait for it…a mere lip balm. Watch the space.
