HayMax & OrgĂˇnico
HayMax allergen barrier balms* have been organic from the very beginning, and have been certified organic by the Soil Association since 2006. The best chef will always ensure that the ingredients are the best quality they can find: if the ingredients are substandard the final outcome won’t be as good. We believe it’s just the same with an allergy product. So we use oils and powders from nature and by using organic ingredients we ensure they are gentle and comfortable on your skin as well as trapping the maximum amount of airborne allergens.
Soil Association Certification es una organización benéfica y es el mayor organismo de certificación orgánica del Reino Unido, responsible for certifying over 70% of all organic products sold in the country. They certify organic food and farming, orgĂˇnico textiles y productos de salud y belleza orgánicos. Visit their website here: http://www.sacert.org/.
También estamos orgullosos de ser partidarios de la Organic Trade Board, a not for profit company which has one mission: to grow organic sales in the UK. They communicate the benefits of organic directly to consumers through their fantastic campaigns which include advertising, digital and PR activity and much more.

* Los estudios han demostrado HayMax para atrapar el polvo y los alĂ©rgenos de mascotas, asĂ como mĂˇs de 1/3 polen antes de que entre el cuerpo. That’s why sometimes you will see it called an ‘allergen barrier balm’ and other times a ‘pollen blocker balm’. Ahora que tenemos una prueba sĂłlida de que HayMax atrapa el polvo y los alĂ©rgenos de mascotas, asĂ como el polen, podemos empezar a hacer la transiciĂłn hacia el cambio de nuestros envases, la publicidad y el sitio web para que coincida con.
¿Qué hacemos eso es bueno?
- We buy in the UK when we can
- We buy Organic
- We buy Fairtrade if possible
- We try to keep our mileage down
- Practicamos las tres R - Reducir, Re-use, Recycle
- We trade ethically
We buy local to reduce the cost to the environment, even if it means it costs us a bit more.
ALUMINIUM TINS – Our tins come from London. They can be recycled.
PLASTIC POTS – Plastic is one of the hardest materials to recycle. So far, we haven’t found anything that will hold HayMax so it stays stable that is also recyclable.
Our pots are now made in the UK, which has been great for reducing our carbon footprint.
We are very occasionally asked why our 5ml pots have a recessed/hollow bottom, He aquí una breve explicación.
When HayMax first started, Max sourced a small quantity of 5ml pots from a German manufacturer. Estas macetas parecían redondeados y linda, pero también eran "doble pared’ which meant that there was a small 5ml pot inside a larger pot. As part of Max’s drive to become more ecologically sound he found a manufacturer of pots based in the UK and was delighted – this had to be greener than shipping pots all the way from Germany! Or from China – which would be cheaper but not good for the environment. The only downside of this change of pot was the recessed bottom. The 5ml quantity of the product has never changed.
ORGANIC INGREDIENTS – We source ingredients locally where possible. We buy the ingredients for HayMax from UK businesses if we can.
- We use Fairtrade beeswax
- We prefer the smell of French Lavender so we use this by choice, but we are open to similar smells from the UK. It is organic.
- So far, we have not found anything else that we like as much which is also organic.
REDUCE, RE-USE, RECYCLE
We RECYCLE envelopes and boxes in the office.
We RE-USE boxes, even if it means they look a bit scruffy. Creemos que eso es mejor que comprar otros nuevos.
We never throw paper away. We use both sides and then we shred it and RE-USE it for packaging. We also shred envelopes and RE-USE padded envelopes.
En HayMax creemos que es muy importante para nuestro grano de arena. No estamos en gritos de nuestras donaciones de caridad, but here’s a round up.
HayMax is a proud supporter of the British Allergy Foundation 'Alergia Reino Unido‘ la caridad nacional lĂder dedicada a apoyar a la prevista 21 millones de vĂctimas de la alergia en el Reino Unido. They also provide a dedicated helpline, support network and online forum for those with allergy and intolerance.They also help and support to educate health care professionals who work with patients with allergic conditions.
HayMax has pledged a donation every year for four years to the Organic Trade Board, supporting growth of sustainable, organic industry in the UK.
Ad hock donations to marathon runs, fun runs and community events are made throughout the year, as well as raffle prizes for fundraising events.
Sabemos que cuando estás en disputas de negocios inevitablemente surgirán - eso es sólo la forma en que está. But we think there is a right and wrong way to handle any issues when they crop up.
We have never resorted to using lawyers or going to court to resolve any problems. We prefer to talk to people directly and sort things out amicably. Creemos que esa es la forma correcta de hacer las cosas.
We believe that if you treat people with respect they will treat you accordingly. This principle underpins our beliefs and how we work.
Here are some of the charities that we support. Take a look at their websites to find out more…
