A Natural Solution for Runny Noses

Julie Pickens and Mindee Doney have impressive executive resumes.

Pickens, 43, was a sales manager for Gallo Winery and Miller Brewing, and she operated six Coldstone Creamery and Wetzel’s Pretzels franchises. Doney, 34, managed West Coast marketing for Procter & Gamble.

Each woman also had three children who suffered from the usual pediatric colds and allergies. As noses ran and became chapped, dry tissues abraded tender skin.

Pickens and Doney had an entrepreneurial epiphany: Why not invent moisturizing, saline-infused nasal wipes that dissolve mucus naturally and soothe kids’ red and crusty noses?

Boogie Wipes launched in 1997. The extra-soft wipes are hypoallergenic and contain no alcohol, phthalates or parabens—chemicals organic consumers definitely want to avoid. Added chamomile, vitamin E and aloe soothe sore noses.

Boogie Wipes are available in four scents: Fresh, Unscented, Grape and Magic Menthol. Suggested retail price for a 30-wipe package is $3.99.

You can find the Boogie Wipes at Target, Rite Aid, Walgreen’s, Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us, as well as online.
