Hay Fever? An Ingenious Way to Avoid the Problem

If you are allergic to nuts, you avoid them. If you are allergic to pollen, it’s not so easy to avoid it. (Not that its’ so easy to avoid nuts)! HayMax organic drug-free allergen barrier balms help you do just that, by trapping pollen before it enters the body.

Hay fever is an allergic reaction to airborne pollen from trees, grass and weeds. The peak of the tree pollen season is between March and April and the peak grass pollen season lasts from May to July. Most sufferers are allergic to grass pollen, and many are allergic to both, meaning they can suffer all through spring and summer. Which is exactly when you want to be feeling your best.

HayMax is an innovative organic allergen barrier balm, based on beeswax and sunflower oil, that’s applied around the nostrils and bones of the eyes. Available in five varieties, HayMax is proven to trap over one third of pollen grains before they enter the body [1].

Each person can tolerate a certain amount of pollen in their body without reaction. Once they go over this amount – known as their trigger level – hay fever symptoms are triggered. By helping keep people under their trigger level, HayMax help keep sufferers symptom free. As long as HayMax keeps you below your trigger level, symptoms will not occur. In a 2016 survey by leading allergy charity Allergy UK, 80% of responders said that HayMax worked [2].

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

HayMax has won the Allergy Friendly Product award from Allergy UK, is certified organic by The Soil Association and is approved by The Vegetarian Society.

HayMax products have gained over 40 awards, including winner in the ‘Health and Beauty’ category of the prestigious Soil Association Organic Awards, a 2017 ‘Mother & Baby’ Award and has already been shortlisted for the 2018 Mother & Baby Award.
