In 2003, a young inventor launched his first mainstream product on eBay. Known as the world’s first hot pepper nasal spray, “Sinus Buster” was born of both innovation and necessity.

Perry had suffered from chronic cluster headaches and allergies for 20 years before discovering the “sinus busting” secret of hot peppers. Perry was a frequent talk show guest who made a handful of appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show in the mid 1990s. As a nationally recognized self defense instructor, Perry was famous for getting sprayed by real police pepper spray for live audiences and television shows.

After teaching Oprah Winfrey how to use self defense pepper spray, Perry was deluged with phone calls asking him to do live pepper spray demonstrations around the country.

“I got offers from everywhere. Police groups, corporate events, and lots of tv news channels. I was getting paid to get sprayed with police pepper spray, and I was selling hundreds of my self defense videos all thanks to Oprah Winfrey. Then one day I was doing a spray demonstration for a FOX television news station and I discovered my own cure. Once I discovered the secret of hot peppers -- I never had another cluster headache again,” says Perry.

Perry is referring to the first time he found out that hot peppers could stop most headaches instantly. Minutes before the live television demonstration, Wayne was stricken with a severe cluster headache attack, and after letting the news reporter spray him with police pepper spray, Perry’s headache went away within seconds.

Over the next few years, Wayne Perry came up with the ultimate natural hot pepper formula designed to relieve 99% of all chronic sinus, allergy and headache symptoms. In 2002, Sinus Buster hot pepper nasal spray was born. At first, Perry had a tough time selling his new medicinal innovation until he learned about the power of eBay.com.

“In 2002 I lost my job due to the economic events brought on by 911 and I decided to give Sinus Buster a real try on the Internet. Until then I was selling it locally with about 100 regular customers who swore by the stuff, but I needed to get the product out to the mainstream market with very little money. At that time I was a single parent working three 30 hour jobs adding up to 90 hours a week. One of my jobs was running my own eBay auction business. I specialized in old books and record albums. eBay was a life-saver for my family making us more than $500.00 a week in addition to my other two jobs. So I decided to promote Sinus Buster on eBay and within a few weeks I stopped selling books on eBay and just marketed Sinus Buster. By August 2003, we had 1,000 regular customers and more than 400 personal testimonials from Sinus Buster users proclaiming this product as nothing short of a miracle,” boasts Perry.

Today Sinus Buster is sold in more than a thousand stores throughout North America with new retailers joining the bandwagon everyday. With two clinical trials behind them, Sinus Buster brand pepper nasal sprays are considered a true breakthrough for natural sinus, allergy and headache relief.

In fact, the makers of Sinus Buster, SiCap Industries have just released a new line of pepper based nasal sprays designed to take full advantage of the medicinal power of hot peppers. The new formulas cover allergies, headaches, colds, weight loss and even a stop smoking formula. Even with all their success, the company continues to recognize eBay as one of their biggest early supporters.

“Thanks to the free web market developed by eBay, we were able to launch our company into the international arena with very little capital investment. More important is the fact that eBay provides an excellent forum to test market new products. If eBayers don’t buy it….nobody will,” Perry exclaims.

Today SiCap Industries no longer advertises their natural pepper products directly on eBay, but several smart eBay “Powersellers” do. Sinus Buster is available in limited quantities on eBay at excellent prices, but SiCap keeps careful tabs on their eBay sellers making certain that only limited amounts are available for sale.

“In this modern age of online retail it’s important to be seen on eBay. After all, it’s the world’s foremost Internet marketplace. Whether you want antiques or new innovations, you’ll find it on eBay. The best thing about eBay is that they back all the products for sale. They are very tough on counterfeit and low quality merchandise. In fact eBay helped our company out with a recent situation when someone was selling our products without permission. Once we alerted eBay that this seller had not even paid for the product in the first place, it only took a week or so before the auctions came down. If they pop up again they’ll surely be hit with legal action, ” Perry explains.
