Question

How does Tecnu Original poison ivy cleanser work to remove urushiol?

Answer

Tecnu breaks the bond that the poisonous oil makes with the proteins in our skin, it does not break it down, chemically into inert substances. It may be possible that some of the oil residue could reside where you rinse off, but we have never tested that theory. We have never heard of anyone becoming re-contaminated from such exposure.

Use Tecnu to remove poison ivy and oak oil from skin, pets, tools and equipment
