The Poison Ivy soap is 3 oz. in size. It is made with: Lye, Pig Tallow (lard), castor oil, vitamin E and JEWELWEED. This soap stops the itching on contact. The most important aspect of the soap is making sure after you wash with the soap, you rub the lather on the rash and let it dry. Repeat that process as necessary until the rash is gone. Putting the lather on your skin before exposure, and then washing right after exposure has been shown to help. Washing in warm water with the soap soon after exposure to the plant will wash the oils of the plant down the drain. No rash.
POISON IVY SOAP
Jewelweed is Mother Natures cure for the itch and rash of Poison Ivy, Oak or Poison Sumac. Jewelweed is found in nature, usually, nearby the poison plants. My Soaps uses only fresh picked jewelweed in our soap.
WHAT CAUSES THESE PLANTS TO BE POISONOUS
It was once believed that the plants themselves caused an allergic rash and the rash could spread over a persons body or from one person to another. It is now known that allergic reactions from these plants are caused by Urushiol, a sticky lacquer-like substance found in the sap of the plants. When this substance is spread, the rash will spread. If this substance can be removed (it is waterproof), the rash will quit spreading.
Remove the urushiol Remove the itch Prevent the rash
HOW DO YOU USE POISON IVY SOAP?
After exposure to poison ivy, use the soap exclusively when bathing. Wash your entire body in LUKEWARM water with Poison Ivy Soap; do not use any other soap or body wash at this time as the ingredients may spread the urushiol or irritate any rash. Rinse well. It has shown that if you apply the lather before exposure and then shower immediately after, with the soap it can help with not getting any rash.
It is the perfect combination of pure soap made with lye, pig tallow, spring water, and the plant jewelweed. Pig tallow, or lard, will not spread the urushiol oils but will help to dry the oils up. Jewelweed is an natural antidote that stops the itching on contact and helps to heal the rash.
Soaps made with oils will spread the urushiol and not wash it from your body.
WHEN AND WHO CAN USE POISON IVY SOAP?
It can be used at any stage following contact, whether used initially to prevent a rash or even several days into an outbreak. It can be used on small areas of suspected contact, or on large outbreaks covering most of the body. Anyone can use the soap-including children, expectant mothers, diabetics, even the elderly, because it is made with all-natural ingredients and does not contain chemicals or harmful ingredients such as alcohol. Poison Ivy soap needs no warning labels. However, as with any soap, avoid contact with the eyes and use externally only.
Husband and I both are allergic to poison ivy and always get it on our land. We shower right after yard work and somehow end up with a rash still. We always forget to put Ivy Block on it seems. Found My Soaps at the home show in Columbus and bought 2 bars to try. I have used only the Jewel weed soap after yard work (at least twice I KNOW I had been exposed during mowing/weeding). NO RASH AT ALL! Just ordered 4 more bars so we always have one at the house this summer. S.W. 5/21/2019
I bought your Poison Ivy soap at the Strawberry fest in Troy Ohio this year for my husband who is highly allergic. My husband thought I was crazy at the time, until he got poison sumac on his arm about a week ago. I made him use your soap right away and within a week it is just about gone and did not spread at all! No Dr. visits and no shots!He was truly amazed and so was I! I would recommend this product to anyone and will! Thanks again so much! W.K. 9/14/2018
Love the poison ivy soap! My husband and 5 year old son fight poison ivy all summer and fall, the poison ivy soap has been the best thing I could have found this summer! It works wonders for them and so much better than any other over the counter wash, lotion or cream as well as the home remedies we've tried and we've tried a lot over the years. Thank you, I only wish I would have found it sooner! A.B. 7/27/2017
Thank you for making such great soaps! My sons' doctor had warned him he could not get poison ivy again! I was at the Findlay craft show and listened to the benefits of the poison ivy soap, and bought 1 bar. He sent me back this year and I bought 5 bars. He does not want to be out of it. I bought the Himalayan salt bar and have reordered more. My daughter-in-law loves the Problem skin bar, and my mother-in- law likes both. They're all winners with this family! B.W. 6/16/2017
"Bought your poison ivy soap at the Strawberry festival today. Had poison ivy on my arm and the gentleman wet the soap for me there. It's already drying up nicely! Love it! Thanks so much!!!" V.H. Strawberry Festival 2017
"I had pulled weeds a few weeks ago and ended up covered in poison ivy. I had tried just about every type of treatment including steroids without much luck. On Friday I happened to see a Facebook post from our locally owed grocer that just started carrying your products. I made a trip there first thing Saturday morning to pick some of the Poison Ivy soap up to try it out. This soap is amazing!!! I had relief after one shower. I’m including a picture of my leg before and after two treatments with it." T.M.T. 2018 . ( Please see testimony page for pictures.
My Soaps)Gotta give a shout out to My Soaps (Pat Kramer) for how well their Poison Ivy soap works to relieve itch/pain...Super fast!I scratched all day yesterday...voting , sewing, packing for my biggest show of the year out of town this weekend. I was saying, "man, a couple of fall mosquitoes got me good." On one of my errands, my eldest daughter noticed me scratching and pointed out I might have poison ivy. Yep, helped an elderly neighbor for a little bit in her yard the day before.I had swelling on top of fingers, inside both wrists, and on top of feet. Per instructions, I washed and then rubbed the damp My Soaps poison ivy soap over all the affected areas and left it on to dry. No noticible residue...NO MORE ITCH. Now, a couple hours later, no redness or swelling.I'm so glad I stocked up on this soap. Only had one bar left after sharing it with my family. Thanks for such a great soap! <3 My Soaps...You Rock!
