I not used detoxipads pads in long while and don't recall them using gold pads. Anyhow, if they now sell them, it's very probable they are purchasing the pads from Zidiz and selling them in their country. Zidiz no longer sell gold pad but sell much better pad with large amount of bamboo vinegar. Basically, the less dextrin has, the better. Wood vinegar is ok for removing toxins, but bamboo vinegar is much better and more potent. Many companies lie about amount of wood and bamboo vinegar -some state as high as 72%. (72/2 =36% of each ingredient). Pads which contain very little dextrin tend to be "chunky" instead of light and spreading easily in pad.
