Don't let poison ivy & oak interrupt your outdoor plans!
With Tecnu Extreme Poison Ivy Scrub you can cleanse away the
rash-causing oil from poison ivy and oak plants and get back to
doing what you love most whether it be camping, hiking, biking,
disc golf, or gardening!
Why do poison ivy and oak plants cause my skin to break
out? You can thank urushiol, the resin found in all parts of poison
ivy, poison oak, & poison sumac plants. To get rid of a poison
ivy or oak rash, you must remove the urushiol to allow the skin to
begin its natural healing process.
If you suspect, or know, you have been in contact with
poison ivy plants, we recommend using Tecnu Extreme as an all-over
body wash. Mix the product with a small amount of water and gently
scrub affected areas. Tecnu Extreme will gently exfoliate the skin
and effectively remove poison ivy oil. If necessary, follow up with
a poison ivy rash treatment for itching and pain such
Medicated Anti-itch Gel or Tecnu Rash Relief
TIP: The sooner you can wash with a poison ivy soap (like
Tecnu Extreme) after exposure to these poison plants, the better
chance you have of avoiding the rash. The rule of thumb is to wash
within 8 hours. After that timeframe, it's likely the resin has
already been absorbed by your body.
Note: We realize our product has a funny name (see
Original page for details about its origin), and
it's likely you've seen it misspelled as Tech Nu or Technu Poison
