Anti-pesticide Dermal Gel
Project Description :

Due to lack of resources, spraying pesticide using hand-held, manual device is a norm in indian agriculture. in the past three years, more than 3000 farmers in india were hospitalized due to an alarming frequency of pesticide exposure which eventually led to a tragic toll of 442 deaths. this severe clinical gap has a massive impact on the health of 263 million farmers and their families in india. therefore we have developed a skin-gel that can protect the farmers from pesticide-exposure to prevent all the toxic effects caused by pesticides. the skin-gel which is armed with numerous chemical detoxifiers instantly attacks on pesticide molecule and catalytically cleaves it into smaller, non-harmful components, and the toxic potential of pesticide is quenched immediately. usually large quantities of pesticide fall on the skin while spraying, and pesticide easily enters the body through the skin. over time, farmers are exposed to multiple small doses of pesticides during spraying and handling at farms which leads to an accumulated, irreversible health damage leading to learning difficulties, suffocation, paralysis, muscle weakness, loss of stamina, and in certain cases-death resulting in huge healthcare costs and major socio-economic implications. this skin-gel will do is to add an army of detoxifiers along the skin, and detoxify each pesticide molecules even before it reaches the skin. the genius of this skin-gel technology is that each detoxifier can detoxify multiple pesticide molecules. therefore, just by applying once, this gel on the skin can offer day-long protection against pesticides.
