Albany, NY (PRWEB) October 18, 2004
One small start-up company in upstate New York has found a profitable niche in the world of natural health and cosmetic products thanks to the medicinal potential of hot peppers. When SiCap Industries started operations less than a year ago, the company was making a very unique product in the founder's basement. That product known as "Sinus Buster", is the world's first and only hot pepper nasal spray -- that's right "Hot Pepper Nasal Spray".
SiCap's all natural nasal spray quickly proved to be a breakthrough in relieving a host of chronic sinus and headache conditions. Today, Sinus Buster hot pepper nasal spray is being embraced by physicians and their patients around the world. Sinus Buster is one of the most searched names on the web, and it's selling in the thousands all over the world.
The secret of this strange nasal spray comes from the natural chemical found in hot peppers known as "Capsaicin". This natural extract is the ingredient that puts the "Hot" in hot peppers, and the medicinal power of this simple compound is what's driving SiCap's success in the business world.
Barely six months in business, and SiCap has already drawn the attention of The Wall Street Journal. After the success of Sinus Buster was featured in the Journal's health section, potential investors and serious buyers were swarming the tiny SiCap office with all kinds of inquiries, and the media storm has barely begun.
Thanks to the success of their Sinus Buster nasal spray, SiCap Industries has soared from a literal basement operation with one tiny office, into a new 3,500 square foot manufacturing facility. Sinus Buster sales have been so brisk that the company has had no choice but to expand on all levels. According to SiCap's founder, the company is also set to launch an entire line of hot pepper based health & cosmetic products sometime before Christmas.
"We've been working on some incredible capsaicin based products especially in the skin care arena. We've come up with an amazing anti-aging cream using capsaicin and shea butter in combination with some very unique natural oils and resins. Another cool product is our anti-acne warming soap. It's the world's first capsaicin based soap, and it doesn't burn your skin at all. It actually helps protect sensative skin. It wakes your skin up and it abolishes acne and many skin conditions very fast. Ofcourse we also have a new product already on the market called Pepper Boost. It's an all natural food spray that helps boost your metabolism and promote healthy blood flow. You can spray it on food or in your mouth, and it has very flavorful lime taste -- goes great on fish and chicken too," says Wayne Perry, founder and president of SiCap Industries, LLC.
SiCap also plans to market their own capsaicin arthritis cream, but unlike the others, Wayne Perry says SiCap's cream will feel very mild to the skin while actually using a higher percentage of capsaicin than the standard creams on the market.
"We figured out a little trick with capsaicin that allows us to include a much higher concentration than the other pepper creams out there. We found that when mixed with certain oils and butters, the burn of capsaicin can be nearly depleted while leaving the powerful warm feeling in tact. This way, our cream will counteract arthritis pain for hours without giving the user discomfort on the skin, and that's the secret to making capsaicin the perfect arthritis pain reliever because with capsaicin you have to apply it several times a day over a prolonged period to gain control over chronic arthritis symptoms," adds Perry.
Another interesting product for arthritis sufferers is a stronger version of SiCap's anti-acne warming soap. This stronger version is designed for arthritis sufferers who deal with terrible hand pain. Perry says one application of the soap can relieve pain for hours, and to reactivate the heat, all the user has to do is run warm water over their hands. It lathers just like normal soap, and the user simply has to let the lather sit for a minute or two before rinsing. According to SiCap officials, this unique soap has the potential to control chronic arthritic pain in the hands -- allowing for better mobility within a matter of weeks.
"The studies are out there showing capsaicin to be a potential remedy for many illnesses that include pain, inflammation, or rash. For instance, it may sound nuts that we're producing a line of skin care products made with capsaicin, but these products are designed to give your skin the medicinal effect of hot peppers without any of the burn. Our night cream is mild and soothing, but it also contains enough capsaicin to reactivate tired skin, tighten up lines, and relieve acne and many rash type skin conditions," says Bob Haines, Vice President of Manufacturing for SiCap Industries.
The night cream Haines is referring to is part of the new "Pepper Care" cosmetic skin care line offered by SiCap. These products use expensive and well thought out natural ingredients (many certified organic). For Instance, "Pepper Care Night Cream" uses several natural exotic pepper extracts blended together with Shea Butter and a host of other natural herbal extracts and oils. The result is a perfectly balanced, and incredibly soothing cream that relaxes the face while tightening the skin. It leaves your face feeling smooth and clean with no drying effect, and no build up of oils.
SiCap has also incorporated the mineral qualities of natural "Dead Sea Mud" in combination with Capsaicin in some of their new skin care products, and according to SiCap's management team, their new product line will represent a breakthrough in natural skin care.
