SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - January 27, 2014) - AirWare Labs Corp.
) today announced that its AIR ALLERGY™ Advanced Nasal Filter has been selected as a 2014 Visionary Award Finalist for the VISION® Consumer Products Conference in Dallas, January 27-30, 2014.
Chosen by INDA, the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, for its "demonstrated uniqueness, novelty and technical sophistication," the AIR ALLERGY™ patented nasal filter design effectively blocks airborne allergens like pollen, dust and pet dander, as well as bacteria and viruses that cause the flu by entering the body through the nasal passage.
"We are thrilled that AIR ALLERGY™ was selected by INDA as a Visionary Award finalist," said Jeffrey Rassás, President and CEO of AirWare Labs. "This prestigious nomination is a testimony of our commitment to using cutting-edge design in the development of easy to use products that enhance health, vitality -- and life overall -- by promoting optimal breathing."
AirWare Labs Director of Marketing, Chase Herschman will give a presentation to VISION® attendees on the unique design and application of the AIR ALLERGY™ filter and its impact on the health and wellness industry, particularly as demand for products that defend against allergies and flu are at record levels.
In fact, market research firm Mintel recently reported that the cold, flu and allergy remedies market increased 22% from 2007-2012, with 7% of this growth happening between 2010 and 2012 -- due in large part to a severe 2012 allergy season. Mintel expects cold, flu and allergy sales to continue to climb as a result of the current cycle of milder temperatures and increased pollen counts.
In addition, Mintel notes an increasing demand for natural or alternative choices versus traditional medications for colds, flus and allergies. With its use of eucalyptus essential oil as a natural antibiotic defense against airborne allergens, viruses and bacteria, AIR ALLERGY™ is well positioned to capture a prominent place in this growing market, as reflected in its 2013 national rollout into 7,500 Walgreen's stores.
