The Special Anti-wrinkle Ingredient in the GlycoShea Creams:

Friday June 21st 2019 brings the first day of Summer 2019. It’s also the day in 2019 with the most Ultraviolet light. And UV rays tend to damage our skin, contributing to sunburn, skin cancer, and premature skin aging and wrinkling.

Fortunately, Board-certified Dermatologists like myself now have many helpful therapies available, both prescription and over-the-counter, to help people deal with these effects of UV damage. Prescription options include Tretinoin cream, a topical chemotherapeutic called 5-FU, and a new botanical product called Picaro Gel.

In 2016 - after 23 years of practicing Dermatology - I founded Big River Silk Skincare Inc. - to manufacture and distribute over-the-counter organic and natural skincare products that help patients with wrinkles and splotchiness of skin color from UV rays. The special anti-wrinkle agent in the GlycoShea line is Glycolic acid, an Alpha-Hydroxy that enables the skin to release or liberate old dead cells from the outmost layer, the stratum corneum, so that new healthy cells can develop from the lower layers.

So, at Big River Silk Skincare, we manufacture three forms of these Alpha-Hydroxy Moisturizer Creams - which include a special blend of Refined Shea Butter and Anti-wrinkle Glycolic Acid: GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream (1 oz:$39.95/2 oz:$59.95/8 oz:$179.95) GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream/Standard Strength: (1 oz:$19.95/2 oz:$29.95/8 oz:$89.95); and our newest addition: GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream/High Strength (1 oz:$29.95/2 oz:$44.95/8 oz:$134.95).

Designed by Dermatologists, the GlycoShea line is free of dyes, of fragrances, of formaldehyde, free of parabens and sulfates. Even free of propylene glycol and other emulsifiers. Our logo? Science Simplifying Skincare.

All of our products are manufactured right here in the United States, and available through ($5 shipping and handling for orders under $40.00), or for pickup at our company headquarters at 8143 Walnut Grove Road, Cordova TN 38018, M-F, 7:30 AM-4:30 PM. 1-901-265-1189.

In the photo below, I have a jar of GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream in my left hand, and a jar of our special soap for people with oily skin or combination skin, AmberSoy Soap Gel, in my right hand. We manufacture both at Big River Silk Skincare Inc.
