MANUFACTURER: TEC LABORATORIES. INDICATIONS: Outdoor Poison Oak And Ivy Skin Cleanser By TecnuSimply apply Tecnu to dry skin for two minutes and rinse with cool water or wipe off with a cloth. When used within 2-8 hours after exposure to the plants, Tecnu can remove urushiol oil before the rash begins. Once the rash has started, washing with Tecnu helps remove any free oil on skin allowing the natural healing process to begin without possible re-contamination. Urushiol oil can also spread from contaminated clothing, shoes, gloves, tools and pets. Since the oil does not evaporate, it can remain on these items for months or even years at a time. Use Tecnu to remove the oil and avoid a rash from secondary contact.
Remove irritants from your skin that could turn into itchy problems. Use Tecnu� Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser after you have been outdoors to remove the rash causing oil, urushiol (oo-roo-she-all) from poison ivy, oak and sumac.INGREDIENTS:
Deodorized Mineral Spirits; Water; Propylene Glycol; Octylphenoxy-Polyethoxyethanol; Mixed Fatty Acid Soap; Fragrance.
Tecnu is most effective when used within the first 2 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.
