HayMax Organic allergen barrier balm supports allergy UK Awareness Week

Allergy UK is the leading national charity providing support, advice and information for those living with allergic disease.

HayMax organic allergen barrier balm is proud to be a corporate partner of the charity for 2021, providing continued sponsorship of the Garden in The Allergy House on the charity’s website. The Allergy House provides useful tips and advice on managing allergens in the home and garden. HayMax also continues to support the charity’s allergies factsheets throughout the year, on Allergic Rhinitis & Hayfever, Pollen & Moulds in the Garden and House Dust Mite.

Allergy UK’s Spring Allergy Awareness Week, planned for 26th to 30th April, will include a focus on hay fever, its symptoms, impacts on life and ways to alleviate symptoms. It will also include season predictions (good or bad for hay fever sufferers) as early as possible, before the peak season in June and July. The charity had a significant amount of press interest throughout the season last year and hopes to repeat its success this year.

Allergy UK does a fantastic job of helping people who have to live with allergies, so we want to support Allergy Awareness Week in reaching more people with helpful messages and support. We are proud to have helped this wonderful charity with many of their campaigns over the years since we started working with them back in 2011

"Allergy UK is a great charity who stays focussed on the job they set out to do, and makes a real impact on peoples’ lives. We want to help them continue their journey to try to do more and do it better. Of course, we also want to give more people the opportunity to try HayMax™ and we felt it was really important – and we were delighted – to attain The Allergy Friendly Product Award to give people with allergies to pollen, dust and pets, the confidence that our product really can help.”

What's HayMax

HayMax is an organic drug-free allergen barrier balm applied around the rim of the nostrils and the bones of the eyes (but not in the eyes). It has been proven to trap over 1/3 of pollen grains before they enter the body [1]. This can help keep the sufferer below their trigger level for longer. And 80% of people say HayMax works.

HayMax is talked about by doctors in the media and has been used successfully by two Olympic athletes. It is 100% natural, certified organic by the Soil Association and approved by the Vegetarian Society.

As HayMax is drug-free it is suitable for children and pregnant and breast-feeding women. There are no drowsy side-effects – so, unlike many anti-histamines that people take, it can be used whilst driving and operating machinery, and will not adversely affect performance at work, school, during exams or while taking part in sports or fitness.

The organic drug-free allergen barrier balms are available from various retailers, including HayMax website, Ocado, independent chemists, pharmacists and health stores.
