Question

Is there one of your products that can be applied before contact with poison oak to prevent the rash as some other products on the market claim that they do?

Answer

You are looking for a barrier product, which we do not currently make. If you have been (or, think you may have been) exposed to poison oak or poison ivy plants, washing with a cleanser designed to remove urushiol (rash-causing oil from the plants) within 8 hours after exposure can help remove the resin before a rash begins. Such cleansers include Tecnu® and Tecnu Extreme®.
