Gold Bond's heritage dates all the way back to 1908, when the original Gold Bond Medicated Powder was first introduced to consumers in the New England region. Arthur W. Guilford bought the formula from The Rhode Island State Medical Association, who's conference of physicians originally developed it in 1882. In 1990, Gold Bond was purchased by Martin Himmel Inc. who began developing the regional brand on a national level. During the early 90's, Himmel introduced the first Gold Bond line extensions Gold Bond Medicated Baby Powder, Extra Strength Gold Bond Medicated Powder and Gold Bond Medicated Anti-Itch Cream. In 1996, Gold Bond was acquired by Chattem, Inc., who has continued steadily building it into the market leading therapeutic skin care brand. Herbspro.com is proud to carry the entire range of this fine brand.
