Veelgestelde vragen


Is it safe for young ones (with asthma and eczema)?

We cannot say that it is completely safe – it is against European guidelines to do so and nothing is completely safe. Alle individuen reageren verschillend op verschillende dingen dus ook kennen en begrijpen van de medische geschiedenis van uw kind men niet kan garanderen dat ze niet reageren op iets.

Echter, HayMax and all HayMax ingredients are all Soil Association Certified Organic.

So there should be nothing in HayMax to harm your child – they should be fine. After consultation with Allergy UK concerning this aspect, we are advised that it is possible for perfumes to cause a problem with children – it can cause them to become allergic to these perfumes later in life. Se we recommend that children use HayMax Original and avoid the versions with fragrant essential oils like Lavender.

Het is duidelijk dat men voorzichtig met kleintjes te zijn en je moet altijd streven naar een arts van mening over een medische aandoening.

Many children have used HayMax and I am not aware of any serious adverse effects. Follow the instructions only using a small amount of balm and it is extremely unlikely you will experience any problems.

We hope this answer helps, but do call or email if you want any more information.

Which one should I get?

It doesn’t matter – they all work the same. The oils are only added to give a different fragrance. They only smell when you put it on then the smell goes away. The Original version has no added essential oils whatsoever. De Aloë Vera heeft geen geur en is toegevoegd voor het bekend is rustgevend en herstel van de huid eigenschappen – ideal for a sore nose.

(Als je kijkt hun geclaimde eigenschappen in encyclopedie Julia Lawless's, it will tell you that both these oils are good for Asthma, and Lavender is good for skin issues like dermatitis etc.)

How does it work?

HayMax traps the pollen, dust or pet allergen before it enters the body. If the allergen is not in your body, dan is uw lichaam niet moeten reageren. Het is zo simpel.

Het is een preventie in plaats van genezen - stop het probleem voordat het gebeurt.

Echter, er zijn geen garanties - we zijn allemaal verschillend en we allemaal reageren op verschillende manieren om verschillende dingen. It might not work for you. Echter, out of hundreds of thousands sold, we zijn alleen bewust van rond dozijn mensen voor wie het niet werkt. And loads for whom it works really well. So the odds are that it will work for you.

Will it work on my eyes?

There are two possible reasons why your eyes are sore. One might be because the pollen is entering your body and part of the way your body reacts is making your eyes sore. If this is the case, then HayMax can help, because it stops the pollen getting into your body. The second reason might be that the pollen is actually hitting your eyeballs and causing the irritation directly. If this is the case, then you can put HayMax around the eyes and wear shades, en dit kan helpen - het is zeker heel rustgevend.

We always recommend care when putting anything near your eyes.

Because you put your finger in the pot it is possible that you are putting bacteria in the balm. If this then gets in the eye it could cause problems. So wash hands and keep the pot clean.

Is het niet gewoon hetzelfde als Vaseline?

It is similar to Vaseline but with some significant differences. We have included some comments from customers to illustrate our reply below.

The first is that HayMax was specifically formulated over a period of time to be as ‘sticky’ as possible to the pollen, whilst minimising the sliminess or greasiness.

“Your product was recommended by a friend. Ik heb niet zulke duidelijke sinussen sinds Adam was een jongen, after using it for only a few times. I have always used Vaseline as a barrier, when gardening but Hay Max is nicer…less gloopy.”

Elaine Prijs

So HayMax will be invisible on your nose but will work much better than Vaseline:

“I was a little bit sceptical when I heard about HayMax. I thought it might be like Vaseline, and not work very well. HayMax is BRILLIANT!!!”

Joanne Pearson


Also, HayMax is entirely made from Soil Association Certified organic ingredients (the base formula uses sunflower oil and beeswax) and contains no petrochemicals. Here are a few more comments from people who have compared HayMax to Vaseline:

Ik was niet zeker of HayMax zou werken als ik mensen met behulp van vaseline op dezelfde manier met een zeer slechte resultaten had gehoord, maar ik dacht dat ik zou het eens te proberen dit jaar te geven als mijn hooikoorts heel slecht is geweest. I am pleased to say that in the month or so that I have been using HayMax I have hardly sneezed and not had the horrible tickly nose and itchy, runny eyes that hay fever gives me. I would highly recommend this product.

Susan Wishart
