I purchased Poison Ivy Soap from the Poison Ivy Soap Company off Amazon a few weeks ago. This year has been hard for me. I got my first breakout in early March and have had poison ivy rashes all over my body ever since. After trying to ignore it, I tried OTC creams and astringents to no avail. After some research it came down to using a course of Prednisone that I keep for knee emergencies, or Zanfel, which is very expensive at $30 an ounce, or trying this $8 bar of soap.
When the soap arrived on a Monday I tried it on a two-week-old set of rashes, a week-old set of rashes, and some just beginning outbreaks cause by my weekend hike. The soap went on rather waxy, made my skin feel slightly cooler, and it felt like it had a mild astringent effect. It relieved most of the itching almost immediately. After washing the effected areas twice a day for three and a half days, all the rashes and symptoms disappeared. The soap didn't dry out or negatively effect my skin in any way, either.
The soap contains jewelweed which is purported to naturally break down urushiol, which is the substance in the ivy plants that makes us itch, and that normal soaps are not able to remove.
This product worked very well for me. If I were going out for more than an overnighter I would cut a little slither off the bar and take it with me. There is still plenty of soap left after treating most of my body for several days. Wish I had bought it right away!
