Note: We've heard from a few readers of a possible reformulation of this product. We reached out to Gold Bond and as of September 21, 2015, the ingredients listed here on Beautypedia match what is in the current U.S. formula.

This body moisturizer is great for very dry skin because it contains a high amount of urea. Urea is an excellent moisture-binding ingredient and, in this amount (likely around 10%), has an exfoliating effect too due to urea being able to break down the protein structure of dead skin cells and encourage shedding. In that sense, Ultimate Restoring Skin Therapy Lotion CoQ10 is a boon for those with uncomfortably dry, flaky skin. Adding to this is the inclusion of an impressive mix of antioxidants, cell-communicating ingredients, and skin-identical substances. It is definitely one of the better body lotions at the drugstore, and the price makes it quite a value, too! Keep in mind that urea may cause a stinging sensation upon contact with skin. This sensation should be minor and fleeting. If it isn’t, discontinue use and consider other body lotions. One more comment: coenzyme Q10 is a good antioxidant, but it's not the "king of antioxidant" as Gold Bond claims. This ingredient is listed by its chemical name of ubiquinone.

Brand Overview

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.
