Outdoor Skin Cleanser
Product Details

Removes poison oak and ivy oils that cause rash and itching. Stops irritant from spreading. Why Tecnu Works: Oak-N-Ivy Brand Tecnu cleans and decontaminates clothing and skin after exposure to poison oak, ivy and sumac. Its unique, waterless cleansing formula has been proven to remove the cause of the irritating itch and spreading rash, the poison plants' oil, urushiol (oo-roo-she-all). Urushiol locks on to skin cells within 20 minutes after exposure. Left untreated, skin will erupt into a red, itchy rash in 3 out of 4 people within 12 to 72 hours. Urushiol can also be picked up secondhand from contaminated clothes, pets, or tools. The Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser: Tecnu is especially formulated to unlock urushiol. Other products simply cover up the problem, while Tecnu cleanses the poison plant oil that causes the rash. Used within 2 to 8 hours, Tecnu can remove urushiol before the rash begins. Once the rash has started, washing with Tecnu helps remove any free oils on skin or clothing, thus allowing the skin's natural healing process to begin without possible recontamination. Accepted as standard issue in first aid kits by many public utilities, timber companies, the forest service and other outdoor industries, Tecnu has saved countless lost work hours by reducing worker's comp claims from exposure to poison oak, ivy, and sumac. Keeps the outdoors from getting rash with you.

Keep out of reach of children. For external use only. Should not be applied to raw or oozing areas of skin. Do not use this product for at least 3 days after using hydrocortisone ointments on the affected area. May irritate sensitive skin. If redness, irritation or itching increases, or if infection occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician. Keep out of eyes and other mucous membranes.


Tecnu is most effective when used within the first two hours after exposure or as soon as rash appears. When exposed to poison plants or outdoors cutting firewood, camping or gardening, clean up with Tecnu every few hours to significantly reduce the effects of exposure. Tecnu should be used with free-flowing water. Tub baths may spread the oils that cause the rash. Before the Rash Has Started: 1. Apply Tecnu to exposed unwetted skin within 2 to 8 hours after exposure to poison plants. 2. Rub vigorously for 2 minutes to remove oils and other contaminants from skin. If hyper-sensitive, wash entire body with Tecnu. 3. Rinse skin clean with cool running water or wipe off with a cloth. Repeat. As Soon as Rash Appears: 1. Apply Tecnu to affected skin and surrounding areas. For best results apply to entire body. Rub in for 2 minutes but avoid breaking skin. 2. Rinse with cool running water to remove Tecnu and poison oils. If itching persists, reapply Tecnu, then rinse in a very warm shower (not a bath). 3. Towel dry gently. Repeat as needed and before retiring. To Clean Clothing and Equipment: Saturate contaminated, unwetted clothing with Tecnu. (First check for color fastness by testing a concealed corner of the fabric.) Let soak for several minutes. Launder clothing by itself as usual with detergent and hot water. Equipment and tools should be wiped down with a clean cloth saturated with Tecnu. Wipe clean or rinse off with running water. Clean hands with Tecnu after handling contaminated items.
