Watching briefs: Allergy


Puressentiel has a number of natural, essential oil-based solutions to help manage symptoms associated with allergies, hayfever and indoor air pollutants. Puressentiel Purifying Air Spray combines 41 essential oils to help minimise allergy sources and clear dust mites, germs, bacteria and viruses that can lead to allergies. The Puressentiel respiratory range includes a hypertonic nasal spray, as well as a balm, air spray and respiratory blend to soothe the respiratory tract, boost the immune system, clear the airways and help breathing, says the company.

Allergy is a malfunction of the immune system, which leads it to react incorrectly towards certain substances – but an approach to improving the mixture of species within the gut microflora and so helping to maintain a healthy immune system could be the use of live bacteria supplements, says Probiotics International. Bio-Kult, it says, is a scientifically developed, advanced multistrain formulation containing 14 probiotic cultures.

Both the 5ml (£4.70) and 10ml (£5.74) Opticrom Hayfever Eye Drops packs are back in stock. In recent months there have been some stock issues with the 10ml size, says Sanofi, but the issue has now been resolved and the product will once again be widely available during the peak allergy season. Opticrom will be supported by a comprehensive public relations and digital campaign, which will run throughout the hayfever season, the company says.
