This week is National Asthma Week!



Do you or a family member have asthma or allergies? We have partnered with our friends at The National Asthma Council of Australia’s Sensitive Choice program during National Asthma Week to bring allergy awareness to allergic triggers in spring.

Did You Know…?

Around 4 out of 5 Australians who have asthma also have allergies, and they tend to run in families!

Allergies occur when a person’s immune system reacts to substances (allergens) that are harmless to most people. The triggers can affect breathing, skin, eyes or the whole body. Common allergy triggers include dust mites!

The best way to avoid an allergic reaction is to avoid the trigger that causes it.

Now is the perfect time to spring clean your clothing, bedding and any materials that have collected dust throughout winter – getting rid of dust mites can help you avoid allergy triggers around the home.

The Sensitive Choice program identifies products that are asthma and allergy-aware. Make sure you look out for the blue butterfly on hundreds of products.

The following products of ours are Sensitive Choice approved:

 

To Be Aware, Is To Care.
