Swabbies A Swabbies Story—How it All Began
Like many mompreneurs, Carman Campbell had a problem and developed a product out of necessity. As a single mom of three children at the time, Carman grew tired dealing with diaper rash creams and ointments that would leave her hands a mess while fumbling to change a wiggly baby or toddler. She
was desperate for an easier and cleaner way to apply creams and ointments without her hands feeling greasy and smelly from the powerful chemicals. After much research, she realized that there was not a product available on the market that could remedy this common, everyday problem that she and many other parents encounter with diaper duty. Carman knew that in today’s market it is critical it is to stand out amongst other competitors. She sought out to develop a product that could be applied with just a pinch and a squeeze, thus, Swabbies was born. Swabbies features a patented, pre-filled, one-hand applicator that dispenses an all-natural diaper rash cream. This herbal diaper cream is uniquely formulated and made from a 40% zinc oxide, organic grape seed, olive and tea tree oils, lavender, shea butter, and beeswax blend designed to soothe the most sensitive of skin areas. After a quick use, the applicator can be easily tossed in the trash along with any used diapers and wipes or the plastic can be recycled. Talk about a game changer!
Since the inception of the Florida-based Swabbies Technologies, Inc. the company has grown to a mass over $150k in capital. Swabbies has recently gained acceptance to the kulaBrands Community. Beyond growing her business, Carman often looks for partnership opportunities to diversify her brand. She has contracted with two community-based non-profit organizations for job training skills to adults with disabilities. These organizations are assembling, warehousing and distributing Swabbies. Furthermore, she has just partnered with March of Dimes by organizing a corporate sponsorship coming in April 2020. Carman has been interviewed live on “Mommy Talk” hosted by Christy McGlothlin and Swabbies has been featured in Drug Store News and in the OK! Magazine’s August issue featured as a celebrity’s kid brand.
All of Carman and Swabbies innovation and hard work has not gone unnoticed with the following accolades:
- 2018 Winner: Top Choice of the year in Baby Care- Baby Maternity Magazine
- 2018 Special Jury Award- Eco-Excellence Awards
Since launching, Swabbies has grown to feature three (3) products and is now available online, in vending machines in Texas malls and airports, and boutiques. This list continues to grow on a national and international level. Swabbies greatest milestone to date will be their upcoming August 2019 launch at the big-box retail store Buy Buy Baby. The future for Carman and Swabbies is extraordinarily bright for continued business sustainability, product development, and short/long-term growth.
