If you have been exposed to poison oak, ivy or sumac you should thoroughly clean up with Tecnu as soon as possible to unlock and remove the poison oils that cause your rash. If the rash has appeared, use Calagel to stop the itching, dry the oozing, reduce the swelling and help avoid possible infection. A History of Relief: Tecnu was developed in 1961, during the cold war years, by chemical engineer Dr. Robert Smith as an effective waterless cleanser capable of removing radioactive dust from skin and clothing. His wife accidentally discovered that Tecnu would cleanse poison plant oils after exposure to poison oak and ivy. Tecnu has since become standard-issue in first aid kits of outdoor professionals across the country. Now, you can put Tecnu and the Tecnu family of products (like Calagel) to work for your family.
