Our Goal is to Help You Keep Workers Comp Costs Down

Tec Labs has been protecting work crews for over 30 years. Long known as "The Poison Oak and Ivy Experts," Tec Labs has been diligent in developing the hands-down best products for helping prevent or stopping poison oak and ivy rash.

Safety all prod 2013Tec Labs began in 1977 with its legendary product, Tecnu; which was the first product to remove the rash causing substance, urushiol, from skin. After Tecnu's runaway success, the company moved on to other skin problems to solve.

The 10-Hour Insect Repellent was launched in the mid 1980's and quickly gained popularity. Millions of bottles later, The 10-Hour Insect Repellent is still the insect repellent of choice for workers who need all day protection from mosquitoes and other disease carrying insects.

Soon after, Calagel was introduced to compliment Tecnu and offer additional relief to those with an active rash. Calagel's special formulation contains ingredients to help dry up an oozing rash, prevent a secondary infection and protect skin as it heals.

Corticool was introduced as a first of its kind mentholated hydrocortisone gel. Suspending hydrocortisone in a gel formulation was a new approach to making a hydrocortisone product. Corticool's clever formulation allows more hydrocortisone to actually get to the affected area. When compared to a prescription hydrocortisone ointment, Corticool was found to be two times more effective delivering hydrocortisone to the desired area.

Next up was Tecnu Extreme scrub. Tecnu Extreme shot out of the gate as the first all-in-one poison oak and ivy product to either help prevent a rash before it starts, or help stop an existing rash once it's begun. Tecnu Extreme works in only 15 seconds and has become the biggest selling product in Tec Labs' line of oak and ivy products.

Along the way, Tec Labs has won many awards for being a great place to work. The Scientist magazine named Tec Labs as the number one place to work in the life sciences industry for three years in a row. The magazine looked at companies from the U.S., Canada and Western Europe. Men's Fitness magazine named Tec Labs one of the 15 fittest companies in the U.S. in 2007.

Tec Labs is located in Oregon's lush Willamette Valley. The company will continue to focus on developing world class products to help protect workers who are working in the trenches every day.
