Dr. Adams created Sasquatch Itch Cream™ to address the needs currently unmet by pharmaceutical companies. He saw a need for a product that offered immediate and also long lasting relief. As an avid backpacker, Dr. Adams knew fellow enthusiasts would welcome such a powerful product. Poison Ivy and Poison Oak treatments available commercially have never worked for him and rarely for his patients.
He developed the Sasquatch formula while serving in the United States Air Force after a particularly bad poison oak outbreak on base. The base commander challenged Dr. Adams to "keep the men in the field and out of the medic tent!" So Dr. Adams set about compounding various formulas and working with feedback from the soldiers. Several enlightening weeks later, the medic tents were free from poison oak visits and remained so for the remainder of the deployment. Sasquatch Itch Cream was born! Many of his patients are still serving in austere locations and enjoying the benefits of Sasquatch Itch Cream.
