New Gold Bond product keeps hands smooth, germ-free

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. Gold Bond, a Chattem Inc. brand, has announced the launch of its first hand sanitizer moisturizer.

The 2-in-1 Gold Bond ultimate hand sanitizer moisturizer has a patent-pending formula that promises to kills 99.9% of common germs and bacteria in 15 seconds without drying alcohol.

"Hand sanitizers are everywhere. From purses to desktops to airports, they?re convenient for when you are not able to get to soap and water," stated Lucas Mininger, Gold Bond marketing manager. "But the big complaint that kept showing up in our consumer research was that alcohol-based sanitizers really dry out the skin, especially in the harsh winter months.In fact, 42% of people who used a hand sanitizer said they had to use a moisturizer right afterwards, just to keep their skin from drying out."

Gold Bond Ultimate Hand Sanitizer Moisturizer can typically be found in both the hand and body aisle and sanitizer sections of such retailers as CVS, Walgreens, Walmart and Target. The 12-oz. pump retails for $8.99. The 2.7-oz. tube retails for $4.49 and the 1-oz. tube retails for $1.49.
