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.
