This wax prevents your glasses from slipping down your nose

·Contributing Writer

Tired of your glasses constantly slipping down your nose? There's a wax for that.

Nerdwax is a new product currently in development -- a blend of organic beeswax and coconut oil in a lip balm-sized tube -- designed to be applied to the pads of your eyeglasses so they don't slip down your nose.

Entrepreneur Don Hejny, an audio engineer from Nashville, Tennessee, was inspired to create the special wax after watching a musician on stage constantly adjust her glasses.

"I remember after that show calling my wife and being like 'I just had the most amazing idea,'" Hejny tells Mashable.

Hejny experiences his own frustrations with slipping eyeglasses, which constantly move around while he packs and unpacks audio equipment.

"I know that there are so many people just like me out there who feel the same frustration but have no solution," Hejny tells Mashable.

So he took matters into his own hands -- quite literally -- and spent four years developing an all-natural wax that he crafts by hand and sources ingredients for from the United States.

To have his dream become a reality and get his wax on the market, he is relying on the help of a Kickstarter campaign. He has already raised over $16,000, surpassing his initial goal of $5,000.

Hejny estimates a single tube will cost between $7-$12 and last about six to eight months.
