BoomBoom Naturals, Maty’s Healthy Products woo ECRM cough-cold buyers
BoomBoom Naturals won the Drug Store News/ECRM Buyers’ Choice Award for its all-natural daily-use nasal inhalers during ECRM’s Cough, Cold, Preventative & Allergy Program held last month in Jacksonville, Fla. Maty’s Healthy Products was a finalist for its Organic Baby Cough Syrup.
The two companies were selected from dozens of entries in the award program, samples of which were displayed in the ECRM hospitality area during the buyer and seller appointments. Buyers cast their votes based on product innovation and packaging.
“The two Buyers’ Choice Award winners both focus on using products with clean, natural ingredients to address consumers’ health needs,” said Craig Chmielowicz, senior vice president of health and beauty care at ECRM. “Today’s consumers are increasingly vigilant about what they put on and into their and their family’s bodies, and both companies have developed innovative products to address this. Congratulations to both winners.”

BoomBoom’s all-natural nasal inhalers are made with essential oils, menthol and other stimulating scents developed to influence overall well-being and to be used daily, not just when sick or congested. After building the brand online and appearing on “Shark Tank,” the company is pushing into retail across more than 1,500 doors.
