FAQs

  • Does GOLDEN CREME contain capsaicin? Menthol? Lidocaine?

    While those ingredients are common in other over-the-counter topical pain relievers, they all produce a sensation on the skin that can be irritating to some users.  GOLDEN CREME uses a different active ingredient that does not cause any sensation on the skin, but is still safe and effective at relieving pain and stiffness in joints and muscles. Many people find our product to be better for their pain than products with those harsher active ingredients, and for those with sensitive skin, this is often the only product they can use.

  • Does GOLDEN CREME cause any kind of hot feeling on the skin?

    GOLDEN CREME does not cause any sensation of heat, cool, tingling, or numbness.  It feels like lotion as it is applied to the skin, but the carrier cream penetrates and delivers the active ingredient to the muscles and joints below the surface.  One skeptic applied GOLDEN CREME to her arthritic hands, shrugged and said, “I don’t feel anything.”  A few minutes later she returned to say, “I don’t feel anything!  The pain I’ve assumed would always be with me is gone!

  • Does GOLDEN CREME have a strong odor?

    GOLDEN CREME does not contain any artificial fragrances and the active ingredient is essentially odorless.  It does contain Eucalyptus Oil which has a very light scent that dissipates quickly.

  • What is the active ingredient in GOLDEN CREME?

    GOLDEN CREME contains 0.025% Histamine Dihydrochloride.  This is recognized by the FDA as safe and effective for relief of aches and pains associated with arthritis and strenuous activity.

  • Does GOLDEN CREME stain your clothing?

    Not to worry, you will not have stains.  GOLDEN CREME has a very small amount of yellow coloring that softens the stark white of the carrier cream, but it is non-staining.  It absorbs quickly when applied and so does not have a greasy feeling or rub off on clothes, bedding, etc.  Even when a significant amount is spilled, it does not leave any stain behind after normal cleanup.

  • What are the side effects of GOLDEN CREME? Can I take GOLDEN CREME with other medications?

    There are no known or reported side effects associated with GOLDEN CREME, nor are there interactions with other medications.

  • Do I need a prescription to purchase GOLDEN CREME?

    GOLDEN CREME contains an active ingredient that is regulated by the FDA as an over-the-counter (OTC) drug.  No prescription is necessary.
