Tecnu It was 1961 when the trusted name in poison ivy was accidentally born. From there, big dreams were made in a small garage. Learn more at: www.teclabs.com
The Tecnu Story - Poison Ivy, Oak, Sumac and Nuclear Fallout Tecnu was originally developed in 1961 during the cold war by chemical engineer, Dr. Robert Smith, as an effective waterless cleanser capable of removing radioactive dust from the skin and clothing. His wife accidentally discovered that Tecnu would cleanse poison plant oils after exposure to poison oak and ivy. Tecnu has become standard-issue in first aid kits of outdoor professionals across the country. Now, you can put Tecnu to work for your family. Tecnu Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser is unique in that it not only removes urushiol, the toxin from poison ivy, oak and sumac plants, from your skin but can also remove urushiol from tools, clothing, equipment and your pets fur to avoid secondary contamination. Tecnu is an effective cleanser for tree sap, pitch, and can remove skunk oil too. For more information on how to use Tecnu, see our post on our corp site.http://www.teclabsinc.com/tips-info/guides-how-tos/how-to-use-tecnu-original-outdoor-skin-cleanser-on-pets,-clothing,-tools,-equipment-and-more Tec Labs has since extended the Tecnu line to include Tecnu Extreme Medicated Poison Ivy Scrub and Tecnu Rash Relief Spray. Tecnu Extreme is the first medicated poison ivy scrub that removes urushiol from your skin and also treats the painful itchy rash in one step! The exfoliating cleanser offers relief in 15 seconds and is a homeopathic formula. Tecnu Rash Relief is also a homeopathic formula that treats the itchy rash with a no-touch spray on application. All Tecnu products are available at drug and grocery stores in the United States. For more information on our products, visit http://www.teclabsinc.com/

It all began with our original product, Tecnu® Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser, developed by chemical engineer Dr. Robert Smith (Doc) as a waterless way to remove nuclear fall-out during the Cold War in 1961. It wasn’t until the following year, and after several bouts of poison oak rash, that his wife Evelyn stumbled upon an interesting discovery! Sick of her children breaking out in the painful rash, Evelyn took to the backyard to remove the poison oak plants that plagued her children with her bare hands. Upon her return indoors, she grabbed the near-by Tecnu and washed up. To her surprise, she never broke out! At first, Doc was skeptical and it wasn’t until many of the Smith’s neighbors had tried Tecnu to remove poison oak resin (urushiol) successfully that they knew they had something special on their hands. Over the years, Tecnu has expanded its offerings! Have the outdoors left you feeling itchy? Whether it's poison ivy, poison oak, or biting insects that trouble you, we have a remedy just for you! Tecnu Extreme® Poison Ivy Scrub, Tecnu Rash Relief™ Medicated Anti-itch Spray and Calagel® Medicated Anti-itch Gel offer itch relief from poison ivy or oak and other minor skin irritations. Of all of the Tecnu brand products, Calagel (first aid antiseptic, skin protectant, maximum strength anti-itch) can be used year round to help relieve itch and pain due to: poison oak and ivy rash, cuts, scrapes, sunburns, and insect bites. - See more at: http://www.teclabsinc.com But, it’s not just about the products!

Im so happy to be working with a company as amazing as @tecnu_outdoor. Not only do they make great products that prevent me from turning into a oozing, seeping rash of poison oak after a trail run or minimize the itch when im a fool and forget to tecnu (when will i learn? Rule 1- always assume there was poison oak, even if i didnt see it!), but they are also amazing and generous folks. Thanks for the goodies! #tecnu #poisonoakdoesntstandachance #lettheadventurebegin #outdoormore #whereshouldigofirst

I can’t believe how incredibly lucky I am to represent Tecnu. This company not only protects me while I run through poison oak during my trail runs and hikes, but they always send me such awesome goodies! 💕
Thank you @tecnu_outdoor for being so good to me. For making products I believe in. For being amazing. And for letting me represent YOU!

Congratulations to our Ambassador @timtubra in finishing second at the Cool Moon 100 miler!!!

Cool Moon 100 miler finish. I took second place overall and went sub 24 hours on the course in 23 hours 34 minutes. (After this race there is only 3 people with a sub 24-hour finish). Cool Moon is known as being a very tough and hot course, runners do a 13.5 and 11.5 mile loop x 4 with some tough exposed climbs. I had a solid 31 miles but then my stomach turned on me, I only was able to sip on liquids from miles 31-75 and unable to eat any solid foods. But as any ultramarathoner knows if you just keep pushing things will turn around and it did at mile 75. I was able to rip the last 25 and get that coveted sub 24 hour finish. I couldn’t be more grateful to my pacer Nick for pushing me through the night and clipping off those miles. A huge shoutout to @auburnultrarunner for an epic race!

Congratulations Melissa!

It’s those miles at the end that you find out what you’re made of...” shares elite ultra-trail runner Janessa Taylor @smokymountainrunner. .
