ORB BATH is a new and advanced way to bathe comfortably and sustainably, as a solution to the expanding issue of water shortage. Without water, warm air gently flows around the body while the orbs cleanse you. Each light orb illuminates blue light to create the reaction for decomposition and cleansing. The transparent cleansing orbs are a soft gel-like substance made of transparent silicone, coated with a photocatalyst film, which after illuminated by light, can decompose organic compound, kill bacteria and remove odorous components. When the user immerse him/herself, the areas in contact with the orbs will be cleaned.
