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.

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.
