Tecnu Outdoor Skin Cleanser - 4 oz
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.
