Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) November 8, 2007
With a variety of kid's cold medications being pulled from store shelves recently, Mom's are wondering how to make it through the coming cold & flu season without them. Just in time, two Oregon Moms developed an innovative new product to help literally "wipe out" runny noses. Boogie Wipes made with natural saline, offer an effective, gentle way to dissolve kid's mucous. They also help keep noses moisturized with vitamin E and aloe making them a great alternative to a dry tissue or saline nose drops.
The Boogie Wipes Story:
Tired of chasing their kids around last winter to clean their little, red chapped noses, Julie Pickens and Mindee Doney of Beaverton, Oregon set out to find a better solution. Months of market research led them to few alternatives to the traditional dry tissue, shirtsleeve or baby wipe (meant for babies other end). As any mom knows, kids will squiggle and squirm and fight to avoid the dreaded nose swipe. In the spirit of the latest trend of Mompreneurs, Pickens and Doney formed Little Busy Bodies, LLC and began working on a solution themselves.
Mixing advice from industry experts and a bit of Mom intuition, Boogie Wipes was born. The wipes are made with a unique, yet obvious ingredient - saline. Saline (sodium chloride) is the #1 recommended way pediatricians suggest treating children's runny noses. It is often dropped or sprayed inside the nasal cavity to loosen and dissolve mucous. Creating a wipe specially formulated with saline offers easier removal of stuck on "boogies." Once the formula was complete, the Mom's assembled a panel of friends and family including their kids ages one (1), three (3), five (5), nine (9) and twelve (12) to choose the texture and smell for the wipes. The vote was unanimous and after receiving the first shipment of Boogie Wipes the kids now ask for them by name on a daily basis. They truly are, as Pickens and Doney say… "Snot Your Average Wipe."
West coast retailers are already picking up the product with it available starting mid-November at local boutiques and grocery chains like Fred Meyer and Thrifrtway. Nationwide, a pack of 30 Boogie Wipes can be purchased for $3.99 online at http://www.boogiewipes.com..
Boogie Wipes eye-catching package and unique scent will be sure to have Mom's and kids dancing into cold & flu season.
