Camp On


Ultimate camping kit must-haves…camping trip supplies


Dear Friends,

It's that time of year! The weekend that unofficially kicks off the start to camping season year after year, Memorial Day Weekend. By now you have most likely decided where you are going, and what you'll be doing while you're there.

Now that location and activities have been checked off of your list, the most important question is, have you started preparing your supplies for the upcoming adventure? The last thing(s) you want to get between you and your outdoor adventures on this glorious, much anticipated weekend are bites, burns, or worst of all, the DREADED RASH! Are you willing to chance your weekend fun to unspeakable ailments such as those just mentioned, OR do you want to take the advice of your dear friends at Tec Labs who want you to get outdoors and CAMP ON?

Read below for a list of items we suggest keeping on hand. For those who enjoy itching, burning, and pain, please ignore the following, we promise to be here at the end of your trip when you'll probably need us!

The Ultimate Camping Kit:

  • Tecnu or Tecnu Extreme: The choice is yours, both will remove the rash-causing oil, urushiol from poison oak, ivy, and sumac. Tecnu cleanses, while Tecnu Extreme gently scrubs and medicates if a rash has already developed!
  • Calagel: Clear, medicated anti-itch gel provides relief from poison oak/ivy rash, insect bites, minor sunburns, and more! No messy pink lotion here!
  • Rash Relief Spray: If the rash you have developed is tender to the touch, try using our medicated anti-itch spray for relief without angering your tender, irritated skin!
  • Tecnu First Aid Gel: for any minor cuts, scrapes, or burns that pose a threat to your good time! With pain-relieving lidocaine that acts quickly, you'll forget about your "owie" in no time.

"I really wish I wouldn't have brought those products along on my trip," said no one, EVER.  It always pays to be prepared adventurers.  So, stock up, and don't leave your fun to chance. It's also a good idea to sign up for our monthly newsletter to get the latest news in poison oak & ivy, as well as savings alerts for stores near you!

SIDE NOTE: For those of you who choose to forego our advice, feel free to call contact us, or find a list of retailers that carry our products at We'll be here for you Tuesday May 28th for the support you'll need!
