Gold Bond's Eczema Relief Hand Cream is a remarkable, inexpensive, fragrance-free option that contains several ingredients necessary to provide visible relief for sensitive, dry skin. Whether or not this is capable of getting your eczema-prone skin under control is something to check out with your physician as other over-the-counter hand creams or prescription treatments may be needed. But even if this isn't your concern, Eczema Relief Hand Cream is just a great, all-around hand cream to keep, well, at hand!
Housed in a squeeze tube, the formula is medicated with colloidal oatmeal, which research has shown can reduce some elements within skin that lead to eczema symptoms. (Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, September 2010).
Along with the oatmeal comes a mix of skin-silkening emollients, soothing plant extracts, ceramide, and antioxidants. It's truly an impressive formula for the money! There's not much else to say except that this hand cream deserves strong consideration, especially during cold winter months when dry hands become a bigger issue for many.
OK, one more comment: Eczema Relief Hand Cream is best applied at night due to its lack of sunscreen. Hands absolutely need broad spectrum sun protection during the day, at least if you want to delay signs of aging such as brown spots and loss of firmness.
- Outstanding mix of ingredients to improve signs of eczema on hands.
- Seals in and provides long-lasting moisture.
- Fragrance free.
- Depending on the severity of your eczema other medications maybe required.

Gold Bond At-A-Glance
Gold Bond is a staple at drugstores due to their small selection of body lotions, anti-itch products, and various foot-care products. Though there are a number of Gold Bond products containing the potent irritant menthol (particularly its foot care and "medicated" products), in recent years Gold Bond has taken great strides and now offers some impressive moisturizers that are fairly priced, too.
