NeatCheeks was founded by two mothers. Danielle stumbled across the idea while dining out with her family. With an overtired 2 year old covered in macaroni & cheese, she had two options: 1) make a scene by wiping her child’s face or 2) Leave covered in cheese. Danielle dipped her napkin in a glass of water, not realizing it was lemonade, and her daughter didn’t resist the wipe but said “nummy”. That’s when NeatCheeks, the Naturally Flavored Face Wipe was born. NeatCheeks is non-sticky, moisturizing, Pediatrician-tested, Dermatologist-tested and kid approved. http://neatcheeks.com
