Gold Bond Ultimate Restoring Skin Therapy Lotion

Is a Solution for:
Dry Skin
August 18, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 9 Comments
At just under ten bucks, Gold Bond's body lotion is not to be sniffed at. It packs in seven moisturizers, ceramide and a good handful of antioxidants. There are palmitoyl oligopeptide, ubiquinone (also known as CoQ10) and rice proteins.

Of the vitamins included, niacinamide (part of the B group) is the most interesting with a good track record of repairing cells, brightening skin tone and it is an anti-inflammatory. There are also vitamins A, C and E.

True, there is a potential irritant, diazolidynyl urea and a couple of parabens. Nor do I like the inclusion of petrolatum, which is heavily controlled in Europe to ensure that it doesn't contain harmful components. Still, overall its not too shabby.

Ingredients in Gold Bond Ultimate Restoring Skin Therapy Lotion:

Water, Hydroxyethyl Urea, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Jojoba Esters, Petrolatum, Glyceryl Stearate, Distearyldimonium Chloride, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Cetearyl Alcohol, Methyl Gluceth-20, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, Shea Butter Extract - Butyrospermum Parkii, Ubiquinone, Ceramide 2, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Cocodimonium Hydroxypropyl Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, Niacinamide, Tocopheryl Acetate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Retinyl Palmitate, PEG-10 Rapeseed Sterol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Polysorbate 60, Stearamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Propylene Glycol, Steareth-21, Diazolidinyl Urea, Fragrance, Methylparaben, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, EDTA, Propylparaben, Butylene Glycol, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Tribehenin, Potassium Hydroxide

    Gold bond works wonders for restoring aging skin. I have thrown away all my expensive anti-aging lotions and now use only gold bond products.

    I just read that even in the smallest amounts, like 1 part per trillion, 'parabens' shift metabolism and elict key changes in the brain structure and function. (written by a chemist turned consumer health advocate. He has a bachelor's degree in biology and a master's degree in organic chemistry) Since your Gold Bond Ultimate contains two such parabens, I am discarding the almost-full 13oz container. It works very well, but I will not use this product again until the parabens are removed.

    JP: i had the exact same (I am 28 but I now have the skin of someone of over 40 year old, it is very loose and seemed to have lost the elasticity. I think it is a reaction to the peptides, collagen or protein in there. It is several months now. Have things ever improved for you?

    I've been using the the 'ultimate restoring coQ10' daily after showering for several months, I typically apply it to the backs of hands and top part of forearms.
    It worked great at first but as weeks went on I've noticed that the skin there looks increasingly more crepey and feels loose, but looks super dry and bad the days I dont use it.
    Has anybody noticed this effect? Could be aging but its odd that its in the same areas that I apply the lotion.

    I just bought this from Wal Mart yesterday and I opened the cap and tried a little on my hand (hehe). It was amazing how fast it worked. Most lotions and creams are not as rich as the ingredients in this one. Your skin turns instantly softer when you apply it. I love it!

    <p>Therapy exits for the person inside? Wouldn't that leave just an empty shell? </p>

    <p>I think I've met some of those people.</p>
