Luisa Javier and Sandra Medina

Luisa Javier and Sandra Medina are co-founders of Wayakit, a biotechnology startup incubated by King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). Avid travelers, they have created a product that can keep clothes clean without a wash, removing stains and odor after being sprayed twice.

Medina first came to KAUST as a student from Colombia, while Javier came from Mexico. Their biotechnology-based formula that excluded the usage of oxidizers and focused on more organic compounds found tech support and funding from KAUST.
