Remove irritants from your skin that could turn into itchy
problems. Use Tecnu® Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser after you have
been outdoors to wash off the rash causing oil, called urushiol
(oo-roo-she-all), from poison ivy, oak and sumac.
Simply apply Tecnu to dry skin, rub vigorously for two minutes,
and rinse with cool water or wipe off with a cloth. When used
within 2-8 hours after exposure to poison oak, ivy or sumac, Tecnu
can remove urushiol oil before the rash begins. Once a poison plant
rash has started, washing with Tecnu helps remove any free oil on
the skin allowing the natural healing process to begin without the
possible spreading of poison ivy or oak (re-contamination).
Poison ivy and oak oil can also spread from contaminated
clothing, shoes, gloves, tools and pets. Since urushiol oil does
not evaporate, it can remain on these items for months or even
years at a time. Use Tecnu Original to wash off the oil and avoid a
poison ivy or oak rash from secondary contact.
Tecnu Original can be found at a
local retailer near you or online.
