With Tecnu Extreme Poison Ivy & Oak Scrub, you can cleanse
away the rash-causing oil from poison oak and ivy plants in just 15
seconds! Using Tecnu Extreme is the most important step to getting
rid of poison ivy oil, and helps prevent the oil from spreading to
other parts of your body.
Poison ivy, oak and sumac rash is caused by the skin's reaction
to the plant's oil, urushiol (oo-roo-she-all). For effective
treatment, you must first remove the urushiol oil to keep it from
spreading, allowing the skin to begin its healing process.
Tecnu Extreme is a specialized soap that can be used as an
allover body wash. Mixed with a small amount of water, it gently
exfoliates the skin to for effective removal of poison ivy oil.
After washing with Tecnu Extreme, you can follow up with an
anti-itch treatment if needed. We recommend Tecnu Rash Relief Spray
or Calagel Medicated Anti-itch Gel.
Do you frequently encounter poison ivy or oak plants? If you
know you have been exposed, Tecnu Extreme can be used to remove the
poison ivy oil within 8 hours after exposure to the plants, before
a rash appears.
