Allergy awareness week 2014: 10 best allergy products

To mark Allergy Awareness Week, here are some innovative products to help to manage the symptoms of allergies, sensitivity or intolerance

All the products in our round-up are approved by Allergy UK, the leading national charity dedicated to supporting the estimated 21 million allergy sufferers in the UK.

“Many products make false claims, so Allergy UK's stringent scientific testing ensures that products awarded our Seal of Approval,” says Maureen Jenkins, director of clinical services at Allergy UK.

This means that from NATorigin’s Lengthening Mascara through to JML’s UV Ultra Vac bed cleaner, you can rest assured that the products in our line-up offer genuine benefit to allergy sufferers.

“People with allergies like to protect themselves as much as possible from the allergens that trigger their symptoms or make them worse, such as pollens, house dust mites, animal allergens and mould spores,” explains Jenkins.

“As part of a combined programme to reduce allergens, such as opening windows, reducing dust reservoirs and destroying mould spores, these products may reduce symptoms and improve people’s health.”

The Dyson Cinetic doesn’t come cheap, but it gets great results. We were also wowed by The Ecover ZERO range of cleaning products, which knocks the socks of other fragrance-free ranges when it comes to efficiency. Check out the Delonghi AC230 Air Purifier too for a product that ticks every box and is easy to use, as well as being reliable and long-lasting.
