What is Sensitive Choice?

Sensitive Choice® is an initiative of the National Asthma Council to help those with asthma and allergy sufferers make better lifestyle choices that may help them manage their condition more effectively.

The programme is focused on companies that are committed to reducing asthma and allergy triggers. Products are reviewed through Sensitive Choice New Zealand's formal review process in conjunction with the National Asthma Council. If accepted, the butterfly symbol is awarded. You will see the butterfly appearing in retail outlets and online.

Over 600,000 kiwis and even more Australians are affected by asthma so even if you don’t suffer from asthma, chances are you know someone who does. The key to living with asthma and allergies is having good self-management of the condition, so that it doesn’t impact on quality of life.

The Sensitive Choice logo is designed to make asthma and allergy sufferers stop and think:
