If you’re familiar with Outdoor Joe’s®, you already know that it’s a homeopathic rhus tox oral solution. But what does that mean? In this blog, we’ll dive into the science behind what makes Outdoor Joe’s® so effective.

What Causes a Reaction?

To understand how Outdoor Joe’s® prevents a reaction to poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac, we first need to understand what causes a reaction. All of these plants contain urushiol, an oily resin that’s found in their sap. When we come into contact with urushiol, it causes an allergic reaction, which can vary from person to person. Some people experience mild redness and itching, while others experience a severe rash and blistering.

Rhus Toxicodendron

The primary ingredient in Outdoor Joe’s® is Rhus Toxicodendron. Rhus Toxicodendron is derived from poison ivy, and is used in a diluted form to treat exposure to poison ivy, poison oak, or poison sumac. This homeopathic solution is thought to stimulate the body’s healing response through a very small amount of exposure.

Does it Work?

Outdoor Joe’s® is backed by the results of several scientific studies. These studies have shown that rhus toxicodendron effectively reduces allergic contact dermatitis from urushiol, the compound in poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac that causes reactions. But don’t just take our word for it; hear from hundreds of satisfied customers who have used Outdoor Joe’s®.
