What to do about hay fever? Choose a sustainable solution!

It's March and we all feel that spring is on its way. Lovely! At least... if you don't suffer from pollen allergies. The hay fever season has also begun, which means that pollen are flying around everywhere. In fact, they even stick to your clothes, skin, and hair throughout the day. How can you best protect yourself against these annoying pollen? We’ve got your back!


If you suffer from a pollen allergy, one of the less enjoyable times of the year has arrived for you: the start of the hay fever season. But don't panic, fortunately, there are plenty of tips & tricks that can help you reduce the symptoms. Did you know that throughout the day, a lot of pollen stick to your clothes, skin, and hair? By carrying the pollen with you, and for example rubbing your eyes with your hands, hay fever symptoms worsen.

And that's where we come in! To prevent itchy eyes, sneezing fits, and teary eyes (somewhat), Marcel’s Green Soap products can come to your rescue during hay fever season. Below you'll find what our products can do for you during hay fever season:


If you go outside during hay fever season, chances are that pollen will stick to your hands in no time. And if you haven't put on sunglasses (yes, this is also a tip), you'll probably soon be plagued by itchy eyes. You guessed it: hands with pollen and itchy eyes don't go well together. And rubbing your eyes will only spread the pollen further. Not fun! Therefore, wash your hands extra often with hand soap during hay fever season. And we deliberately say 'extra often', because you don't have to worry about aggressive chemical ingredients. Marcel’s ecological hand soap is gentle on your hands and on the planet. Made from plant-based ingredients, at least 97% biodegradable, 100% vegan, and the bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic. So, washing your hands extra often is not a problem. Are you out and about all day and don't have water at hand to wash your hands? Then use our 100% biodegradable hygienic hand wipes. Just throw them in your bag so you can wash your hands at any time.


When you come home at the end of the day, you probably don't want to know how much pollen is sticking to your clothes, skin, and hair. So, quickly out of those clothes and into the shower! Thoroughly wash your body and hair with our plastic-free shampoo & body bars. These are made from natural ingredients, sulfate-free, at least 97% biodegradable, 100% vegan, and 100% plastic-free. So, you don't have to worry about the environmental impact when you have to wash more often during hay fever season. We understand that you may not be used to washing your hair every day, but if you have a pollen allergy, it can really help to wash your hair well at the end of the day. Why? Because you don't want to take those annoying pollen to bed! When you go to bed without showering and lie with your hair on your pillow, you'll end up rubbing your nose in the pollen. Not good! By washing your hair, the exposure to allergens is much less. So, you can sleep better for sure.


Yep, your clothes also act as a magnet for pollen. Therefore, don't wear your clothes more than once during a heavy peak. Wash your clothes as much as possible if you've been outside. Actually, Marcel isn't such a fan of washing too often, but for anyone suffering from hay fever, it can be a good solution during a peak moment in the hay fever season. Fortunately, our ecological laundry detergent is made from the best natural ingredients and is at least 97% biodegradable. So, not only will your clothes be clean, but the world around you as well! Oh, and if you've washed your clothes, don't hang the laundry outside. Otherwise, the pollen will be back in no time! It's also better to hang your laundry in a room where no windows are open. Try to keep the pollen out in every possible way for the best result.


The best advice we can give you is to keep your house completely closed during hay fever season. But we also understand that this is a bit tricky and that you like to open the doors and windows when the first sunny spring days arrive. Therefore, try to give your house a thorough cleaning more often than usual. Dust and scrub everything in the house well with our ecological all-purpose cleaner. This is based on natural soap, packed with natural ingredients, and is at least 97% biodegradable. So, together we aim for a clean house without harming our planet.


Those were Marcel’s tips for preventing hay fever symptoms (somewhat) this season. We hope that by applying these tips, you'll get through the hay fever season a lot more relaxed this year. And remember: Marcel’s Green Soap products are always ready to join you in the fight against pollen. Shop them online or grab the products at a retailer near you.
