Are you allergic to grass?

By Miguel Casellas-Gil

Grass pollen is the main cause of hay fever in the US, with an estimated 95% of all sufferers allergic to the stuff. The season for grass pollen runs from May to July each year; with the worst time for sufferers being June and July. HayMax allergen barrier balms provide an effective defense against grass pollen; they are proven in independent studies to trap pollen grains before they enter the body.

HayMax is an organic balm, based on beeswax and sunflower oil, which is applied around the rim of the nostrils and the bones of the eyes to trap pollen before it causes havoc in the body. People prone to hay fever can tolerate a certain amount of pollen without reaction. But once this is exceeded – called the trigger (or sensitivity) level – the allergic reaction occurs. HayMax works by reducing the amount of pollen entering the body, so the sufferer can stay symptom free for longer, or even all day.

In a survey by leading allergy charity Allergy UK in 2015, when asked if, overall, HayMax worked, 80% said “Yes”1. And an independent trial by the National Pollen & Aerobiology Research Unit (NPARU) in 2012 proved that it trapped over one third of pollen grains before they entered the body2.

These popular balms have now won over 40 awards over the last 11 years. The latest are three gold awards from a leading parenting website for the Pure, Aloe Vera and Lavender varieties.

HayMax is drug-free and the ingredients have been chosen to be suitable for children of all ages, and pregnant and breast-feeding women.

HayMax should be applied morning and evening during the hay fever season, and after sneezing or blowing the nose. It comes in a small handy pot – ideal for a pocket, purse, handbag, school bag or sports bag – that can last up to 6 months.

There are no drowsy side-effects from using HayMax, so it is ideal for when driving, running, cycling or taking part in other sports, for people with active lifestyles and when preparing for and taking exams.

HayMax organic drug-free allergen barrier balms retail at $16.99 per pot and are available at independent health food stores and pharmacies and online at and
