A new approach
What if you could stop your allergy symptoms at the source instead of just treating your symptoms? You can with Allergy Defender's Allergen Spray, a new approach to allergy care. Allergen Spray is a product you spray in the air and on surfaces to reduce indoor allergens.
How Allergen Spray works
Allergen Spray's ingredients are minerals. When you spray the product in the air, it attaches to allergens and dust floating around. It surrounds the allergens and drops them to the ground, where the minerals dry them up so they can't become airborne. When you spray it on hard surfaces (tables, flooring, etc.), the ingredients dry on the surface to lock anything down, so allergens stay put and don't float around to cause symptoms.
Proof it works- the science
We knew Allergen Spray was effective, both in the air and on surfaces, but we wanted to prove it scientifically. So we contacted InBio (recognized as the world leader in allergen exposure assessment) to test this product and back up our claims.
Air testing 95% to 80% Reduction of Major Allergens
Based on the results from testing air samples collected from an environmental chamber, Allergen Spray effectively reduces the dust mite, cat, and dog allergens after being sprayed in the air.
Surface Encapsulation 99% Reduction of Major Allergens
Based on the results from surface samples collected from multiple testing, Allergen Spray effectively reduces the number of dust mites, cat, dog, and cockroach allergens from surfaces after being sprayed.
Why use an Allergen Spray?
There are many benefits to using Allergen Spray as an alternative solution to manage indoor allergies. It can be used on various surfaces, including furniture, carpets, and bedding. This makes it a versatile solution for managing allergens in your home. It can also be used in a variety of settings, offices, schools even RVs.
Second, by reducing allergen levels in your home, Allergen Spray can help you manage your allergies without relying solely on medication. This can lead to cost savings and reduced side effects from medication use. It's also an excellent option for people who prefer a more natural approach to managing their allergies.
Third, Allergen Spray offers long-lasting effects that can help reduce allergen levels for extended periods. It means less frequent cleaning and less exposure to allergens, leading to a more comfortable living environment. It's a convenient and effective solution for busy households looking to reduce allergen levels without spending hours cleaning.
How is this Allergen Spray different from an Anti-Allergen Spray?
While each product helps reduce allergies, the main difference is that Allergen Spray can be used both in the air and on surfaces. Other anti-allergen sprays can only be used on just one area- surfaces.
Unlike air purifiers, which have to be moved from room to room, our Allergen Spray is made to be used throughout your home, providing comprehensive and long-lasting protection against allergens. Its effectiveness is not limited to a single room or area of your home, but rather it is perfect for reducing allergens in every room. All you have to do is spray it and enjoy the peace of mind of a clean, allergen-free home.
The Ingredients & eco-friendly side
Using 100% minerals and no harsh chemicals or fragrances means our Allergen Spray is hypoallergenic and safe for the whole family, pets included. In addition, our ingredients are commonly found in the foods you already eat daily, like cereal, meat, and dairy, and are used in water softening. Finally, zero fragrances mean even those with asthma can easily use the product (fragrances should be avoided if you have asthma).
The eco-friendly side
We don't ship water, so our Allergen Spray bottle comes prefilled with only the mineral concentrate. Not shipping water saves you money. Reusing the bottle reduces plastic waste, and our refill system makes it easy to refill at any time.
Where & How to Use
Where to use it
Our Allergen Spray is incredibly versatile and can be applied directly to various surfaces, including your mattress, bedding, pet bedding, couches, pillows, and so much more. Its unique formula makes it an ideal solution for pet owners who want to keep their furry friends but eliminate the allergens that come with them.
You can easily spray it in the air throughout your home and on most surfaces to achieve a clean and allergen-free environment for you and your family.
How to use
Allergen Spray should be used anytime, including if your symptoms increase. We suggest you spray it in every room, including your bedroom about 10 minutes before retiring for the night. Spray in the air in a sweeping motion allowing the solution to settle to the surfaces.
How to Use Allergen Spray Effectively
Using Allergen Spray effectively is straightforward. First, identify the areas in your home where allergens are most prevalent. This may include areas where pets spend a lot of time, such as living rooms and bedrooms, or areas prone to dust accumulation, such as carpets and upholstery. Once you've identified these areas, spray Allergen Spray both in the air and on the surfaces you want to treat.
It's important to carefully follow the instructions (not tricky) on the label. For best results, Allergen Spray should be allowed to dry completely.
To maximize the benefits of Allergen Spray, it's a good idea to use it regularly and spray it generously. Depending on the severity of your allergies, you may need to use it every few weeks or once a month. Using it regularly can help keep allergen levels under control.
In addition to using Allergen Spray, there are other steps you can take to reduce allergen levels in your home. These include using an air purifier, regularly vacuuming and dusting, and washing bedding and linens in hot water.
Why Choose Our Allergen Spray?
Finally, our Allergen Spray is versatile and easy to use. It can be used on various surfaces, including furniture, carpets, and bedding, making it a convenient solution for busy households. Plus, it's easy to apply - spray it on the surfaces you want to treat and let it dry.

The story that started it all
Allergen Spray by Allergy Defender was founded on a father's love for his daughter. Our founder had a severe asthma attack at age five, triggered by "hypoallergenic poodles" and a Christmas tree. Chris, her father, and a team of dedicated chemists developed a solution that changed her life. Now they are on a journey to help millions of people find relief from indoor allergies.
It seems everyone suffers from allergies these days. Seasonal allergies affect 81 million, or 4% of the population in the US alone, and that number keeps rising. Why they keep rising is fascinating. Spring arrives earlier and has since WWII (which makes the outdoor allergy season last longer), and cities have planted male trees to keep maintenance costs low instead of the seed-dropping female trees. (Female trees mess up the sidewalk).
Seasonal allergies cause a range of symptoms, from mild to severe. And they don't get much attention from the medical field, even though allergies can be debilitating and even life-threatening.
Let's move indoors to another kind of allergy called indoor allergies. It's a year-round allergy season because we mainly live inside with pets and dust mites. But did you know pet ownership is at an all-time high? 70% of US households own a pet. As a result, pets contribute to a more significant allergen load inside the home versus homes that are pet free. And the fact is we spend more time indoors than out. Also, consider that your home can still contain pet allergens even if you don't own one!
How do you find relief?
Before we mention a new, safe kind of allergy relief, let's dive into the world of allergies, shall we?
How the body reacts to an allergen
When an allergen is detected, there are all sorts of symptoms that occur and may include:
swelling of the tongue and throat
watery, red, itchy eyes
swelling of the lips, face, or eyes
What is your body doing when experiencing allergy symptoms?
What is your body doing when experiencing allergy symptoms?
The body's immune system releases histamines and other chemicals, leading to symptoms like those mentioned above. While these reactions aim to eliminate the perceived threat, they can cause irritation, severe discomfort, and health problems for allergy sufferers.
Your mucous membranes and allergens
Throughout the body, mucous membranes line cavities; they serve as a barrier to harmful substances such as viruses and bacteria. However, allergens can irritate and inflame mucous membranes, causing excess mucus production to flush out the allergen, leading to symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes, and sneezing. Severe cases can result in difficulty breathing.
High concentrations and reactions
What about high concentrations of indoor allergens? Exposure to high levels of indoor allergens, such as dander, can cause severe adverse reactions and even chronic health conditions like asthma. So, people with sensitivities to these substances need to take steps to minimize their exposure whenever possible.
Why some people react, and others don't
Genetics and the environment play a significant role in who becomes an allergy sufferer. However, they lean toward atopy or "the genetic tendency to develop allergic diseases such as allergic rhinitis, asthma, and atopic dermatitis (eczema)."1
House dust mites
Dust mites (Der p 1 and Der f 1 -the scientific name of the allergens) are small, spider-like creatures that live on soft surfaces. They are too small to be seen with the naked eye. They thrive in warm, humid environments. Dust mites live in dust, mattresses, bedding, upholstered furniture, and carpets. Since they like warm, moist spots, it's no wonder Antarctica is the only place they don't exist! Their food source is the dead skin cells that people and animals shed. In addition, dust mites' feces and body parts contain a potent allergen that can cause problems for sensitive people.
The most common symptom of dust mite allergy is sneezing, but dust mite allergies can cause nasal congestion, watery eyes, and coughing. In extreme cases, dust mite allergies can trigger asthma attacks. Dust mite allergies are often mistaken for colds or flu, but some key differences exist. Dust mite allergy symptoms worsen at night or in the morning, and fever does not accompany them.
Facts about dust mites:
Dust mites were discovered about 60 years ago.
Dust mites are part of the arachnid (spider) family.
Dust mites do not bite humans.
Pet dander (Fel d 1 & Can f 1 - again scientific names for dog and cat allergens) is a fine particle shed from the body of pets and is an allergen that can cause adverse reactions in individuals with pet allergies. In addition to pet dander, pet saliva, and urine can also be allergens. It is important to note that pet hair is not an allergen but can collect allergens. Pet allergens are microscopic, with an average size of just 2.5 microns, making them effortless to become airborne and easy to inhale. Due to their small size, they can easily pass through HVAC filters and air purifiers, thus making them challenging to remove from the air. Once airborne, these particles can remain suspended for hours, triggering indoor allergies and causing asthma attacks or other respiratory problems. Furthermore, pet allergens are very lightweight, making it easy for them to be carried on clothes or shoes and spread quickly from one room to another.
All cats produce allergens through saliva, anal glands, sebaceous glands, and skin. While you may think washing your cat can have a positive long-term effect, studies have shown that allergens return to their original levels in just two days.
"In two large national surveys in the United States, Fel d 1 was detected, respectively, in 99.9 and 99.7% of American homes [30, 31]. Fel d 1 was found in the dust of sofas, carpets, and beds in homes with cats but also in homes without a cat . High levels of Fel d 1 were also found in the classroom, in cars, the offices of allergists, and shopping centers [32,33,34]. Fel d 1 allergen is ubiquitous. It is likely that it spreads from the clothes of cat owners and may also spread from their hair."3
Fun facts about cats:
Cats can jump up to eight feet when pouncing.
Cats sweat through their paws.
A cat sleeps 17 hours a day.
All dogs produce allergens through sebaceous glands found in hair, dander, saliva, and more. "...particles can remain airborne for comparatively long periods of time with minimal disturbance, and due to their small particle size can be inhaled more easily than larger particles such as mite feces or pollen grains (5). Can f 1 is found in all homes with dogs, and in one-third of homes without dogs." 4
Fun facts about dogs
Dog's noses are unique to them, much like our fingerprints are to humans.
Dogs can see blue and yellow.
All puppies are born deaf.
Cockroach droppings, saliva, and body parts contain a protein called blah g 2 (the scientific name), which can become airborne and trigger allergic reactions in some individuals. Common symptoms of a cockroach allergen reaction include sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, and itching.
Cockroaches can trigger asthma through the presence of their saliva, feces, and shedding body parts. "In particular, the combination of exposure and sensitization to cockroaches appears to have a greater effect on morbidity and severity of asthma than exposure and sensitization to other allergens, including dust mites or pets, among inner-city children and young adults with asthma."2
Disgusting facts about cockroaches:
They can live for a week without a head.
Cockroaches can live for 30 days without food.
