HayMax balm recognised as ‘Best British Allergy Product 2022’


Share post:

HayMax, maker of the famous organic drug-free allergen barrier balm has been awarded the ‘British Made Award’ for Best British Allergy Product 2022.

The award celebrates businesses that work tirelessly to make their region one of the most diverse and dynamic the UK has to offer.

HayMax MD and creator Max Wiseberg comments: “This award means a great deal to us. We’ve always been proud that our products have been manufactured in the UK. We are passionate about reducing the cost to the environment so being British-made means we keep the miles down and reduce our carbon footprint.”

HayMax balms are manufactured in the UK. It buys local to reduce the cost to the environment, even if it means it costs a bit more. HayMax’s current pots are now made in the UK, which has been great for reducing their carbon footprint. Its tins come from London.

The new pots can be recycled and re-used. The brand has now switched to using sugar cane to make its pots and has also reduced the amount of material used in the pots by just over 54%. And they have switched from the plastic labels to paper labels.

These pots are recyclable with the roadside collection. So now, HayMax is making a positive contribution to climate change, using up CO2 instead of producing it.

HayMax allergen barrier balms are different from most hay fever products, which work by trying to deal with these symptoms. Instead, HayMax seeks to stop the cause of the problem – namely too much pollen in the body – from occurring.

This helps prevent symptoms completely or helps reduce the severity of symptoms by reducing the pollen load. Prevention rather than cure – since there is currently no cure for hay fever.

Independent university studies have shown that HayMax traps significantly more pollen than an uncoated nostril, and traps all types of grass and tree pollen and that HayMax traps over a third of pollen before it enters the body, in addition to dust mite allergens and pet dander. In an independent survey by Allergy UK, the leading national charity providing support, advice and information for those living with allergic disease, 80% of people say HayMax works. And 94% of people find HayMax quick to be effective; 44% said that it worked immediately and a further 35% said that it worked within an hour or two.

HayMax balms are organic, drug-free and non-drowsy which means they’re suitable for children as well as pregnant and breast-feeding mums. They can also be used whilst driving, operating machinery, for exams and sports.

HayMax organic drug-free allergen barrier balms have an rrp of £8.49 per pot and are available from wholesalers to the health store and pharmacy trade, including Hunts Foods, Queenswood, Jumla, CLF, Avvrax, Hampdens, Sundrelle and Sigma, direct on 01525 406600 or

The HayMax range is supported by national PR and advertising campaigns and POS materials, including giant display boxes, CDUs, leaflets, posters and shelf barkers.
