Zanfel works. But you don't need to spend $40 for a 1oz tube. For the love of god, the EXACT same stuff is in Mean Green Hand Scrub and it'll cost you $20 for 60oz. Yes, you read that right. The guy who "invented" Zanfel used to work at the company that makes Mean Green. He simply realized that it worked on skin rashes like poison ivy and started his own company and now sells the EXACT same stuff for a huge markup to drugstores. I certainly don't begrudge him for his marketing savvy, but you don't have to pay through the nose for something that works. Mean Green (and Zanfel) are simply really good exfoliating soaps. They work on a simple principle: remove the oils that are generating the rash. Mean Green is just sold to car mechanics and other industrial workplaces that need a cleanser for greases and oils. The genius of Zanfel is that it's marketed to drugstores for a totally different use.

I get poison ivy basically throughout the entire summer because of my dogs. They tromp through forests and underbrush and get the poison ivy oils on their fur and then spread that to me. For the past many years, I've just suffered and waited for Fall to come. This year, it started to get pretty bad and so I began intensive research. I tried calomine, Tecnu, Ivy Block, and plenty of others. In desperation, I saw Zanfel at the drugstore and decided it was worth a shot. That 1oz tube got rid of almost all of my itching and cleared up my rashes in about 1.5 days. That's when I started looking around and found the story behind Zanfel and Mean Green. Now I use Mean Green virtually every time I shower.

Verified Purchase
Here is the TRUTH regarding ZANFEL. Forget the instructions on the package. They are designed to make you use WAY too much of an already expensive product.

ZANFEL does WORK. I use it. My family uses it. It DOES work!

Here's my story:

Back in 1994, I was clearing an overgrown section of my backyard. I had let the grass and weeds grow so out of control in this one section that the only way I could clear the area was to use a weed whacker before using the lawn mower.

As I was clearing the area, something got tangled in the weed whacker. Upon attempting to clear the tangle, I noticed it was poison ivy. It was coming from the neighbor's yard, under my fence along the ground, and climbing my stockade fence.

To the point, I had just sent poison ivy spores flying into the air courtesy of the weed whacker. As a result, I ended up with poison ivy spots all over: legs, arms, neck. A co-worker noticed me scratching and applying Caladryl (which is useless) and told me about ZANFEL. At that time, it could only be purchased via the web site. It was not in stores yet and he swore by it.

I bought it. It came in a small tub, probably several ounces (not the 1 ounce you get today). I used it and it worked, but, I had spots all over so I used the entire tub. I was basically bathing in it.

When I ordered more, I got a call from the company asking why I needed so much. They were worried I was using way too much. They suggested I go the doctor and get a cortisone shot.

I explained I had already seen a doctor and got the shot (which doesn't help). I explained that I did not have one patch of poison ivy; I had spots all over. I looked like I had chicken pox.

Mean Green Hand Scrub is essential the same as Zanfel but is much cheaper. Currently, one can purchase a 60 ounce tub from the meangreen biz website for $20 plus shipping. According to the meangreen us website, the inventor of Zanfel was one of their salesmen who noticed a palliative effect on poison ivy/oak/sumac contact skin dermatitis; see "Relief from Poison Oak and Poison Ivy" under the main page's Resource Center tab.

For more detailed information check the pending patent application by Mr. William Yarbrough at the freepatentsonline website. The patent application not only describes how Zanfel works but also has a very nice, although technical, description of the general background of causes and cures. Mr. Yarbrough must be congratulated for both his ability to think outside the box and his persistence in creating a useful over-the-counter medicine. I sincerely hope he makes a bundle with Zanfel and also hope he gets his patent.

What makes Zanfel/Mean Green unusual is that it can chemically neutralize urushiol, the agent that causes the contact dermatitis, even days after exposure. As far as I know, no other agent can do this without destroying your skin. While urushiol buried deep in the skin can still cause problems, repeated applications of Zanfel/Mean Green seem to make things easier and ameliorate itching. However, it is best to start as soon as possible after exposure. Even minutes can make a difference.

Now, here is some information about poison ivy/oak/sumac caused dermatitis I mostly learned the hard way. First, it is not an infection but an out-of-control reaction of your immune system. You cannot infect either yourself or others with urushiol bound to proteins in your skin or in fluid your skin might exude.
