    How do I claim if I have an allergic reaction to wax?

    Allergic reactions to wax fall under the umbrella of product liability. The spectrum of product liability is a broad one and covers any number of things, from beauty to cleaning products, electrical to household goods.

    Wax typically falls into the beauty product category. In the beauty and grooming sectors, wax is usually used to remove body hair. Some waxes are also used to style hair. Therefore, it’s no surprise to learn that an allergic reaction to wax can be both immensely painful and extremely embarrassing. Some allergic reactions can be seriously detrimental to your health and require a hospital visit depending on the severity.

    Allergic reactions are one of many reasons beauty products, including wax, have to carry warning labels. All products need to state their ingredients list. This way, it’s easy for consumers to see if the product contains anything that they know they are allergic to.

    If you choose to go for wax treatment at a spa or beauty clinic, it’s essential you inform staff of any allergies you have. If you still suffer an allergic reaction to wax after disclosing this information, then you may well be due allergic reaction compensation. This is because staff at such places have a duty of care and responsibility towards the safety of their customers. If you inform them of an allergy, and they then use a product that causes an allergic reaction, then this is clearly negligent.
