Gold bond was first introduced by Arthur W. Guilford in 1908. He bought the formula of the medicated powder from The Rhode Island State Medical Association, whoû€™s conference of physicians originally developed it in 1882*. In 1990 Gold Bond was purchased by Martin Himmel who developed the product further and marketed on a national level. The line has increased to creams and lotions along with its best-selling powder, all of which are widely available in drugstores and retail chains nationwide.
