Since there are no cures, Allergy UK’s mission is to advise the public about beneficial products which can help minimize associated symptoms, making lives more comfortable for those living with allergies.
Allergy UK works with manufacturers around the globe to test and promote the benefits of products that may provide relief to those who are affected by allergies.
The Seal of Approval is an endorsement for products which have been independently scientifically tested and proven to be efficient at reducing a person’s exposure to allergens. Allergy Research Limited assesses products and results from independent testing laboratories against protocols developed by highly qualified allergy experts.
A product that carries the Allergy UK Seal of Approval has been scientifically verified to prevent, diminish or eliminate allergens from the environment.
Ultra-Fresh DW-56 is an antimicrobial technology engineered to provide highly-effective, broad spectrum activity against bacteria, fungi and algae which may cause odour generation, discoloration and product degradation.
Articles treated with Ultra-Fresh DW-56 textile treatment system are effective at controlling certain bacterial and fungal species, particularly those that serve as a food source for the house dust mite.
This will aid in lowering dust mite populations as compared to untreated articles, reducing the amount of dust mite allergens being produced. As a result, Ultra-Fresh DW-56 has received the Allergy UK Seal of Approval.
An allergy to dust mites is associated with asthma, eczema and perennial allergic rhinitis. Mites survive in the home environment in soft furnishings such as carpeting, window coverings and apparel, and are commonly found thriving in mattresses and bedding.
When manufacturers treat their products with Ultra-Fresh DW-56 during the manufacturing process, they are able to offer a product that helps provide relief to those affected by allergies triggered by house dust mite allergens and mould (please see regulatory information).
