Other Description

Calagel® and Tecnu® can work together. Were you exposed to poison oak, ivy, or sumac? If so, you should cleanse thoroughly with Tecnu as soon as possible to unlock, and remove the poison oil (urushiol) that causes your rash. If the rash has already appeared, use Calagel to stop itching, dry oozing, reduce swelling, and to help avoid possible infection. A history of relief: Developed in 1961 during the Cold War years by chemical engineer Dr. Robert Smith, Tecnu was created as an effective waterless cleanser capable of removing radioactive dust from skin and clothing. After years of their children breaking out in rashes caused by poison oak, Dr. Smith's wife, Evelyn, discovered that Tecnu® would cleanse away urushiol oil after exposure to poison oak or ivy plants. Tecnu has since become standard-issue in first aid kits of outdoor professionals across the United States. Don't let the rash stop you from living your life outdoors, stock your first aid kits with Tecnu brand products like Tecnu® and Calagel® so you can keep your adventure going!
