GlycoShea Cream: An Anti-Wrinkle Option:

For years, Dermatologists like me have been helping people to find ways to reverse sun damage and smooth out wrinkles. Let’s take a look at what Alpha-Hydroxy creams like GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream do to smooth the appearance of fine lines in the skin.

One helpful move is to get evaluated by a Dermatologist. My own Dermatology practice is in Cordova, Tennessee, a suburb of Memphis, Tennessee. To find a Dermatologist near you, the American Academy of Dermatology (the AAD) – the largest organization of Dermatologists in the world – has a useful locator at whereby one can plus in one’s zip code and then find a list of Dermatologist members of the AAD close to that area geographically.


Alpha-Hydroxy creams are organic anti-aging products that allow the skin to remove dead cells – or to exfoliate – and these include chemicals derived from milk – lactic acid – and also grapes – pyruvic acid – and sugarcane – Glycolic Acid. In 2016, after practicing Dermatology for 25 years, I decided to incorporate Big River Silk Skincare® Inc. to manufacture and distribute a line of anti-wrinkle creams and helpful soaps or cleaners for people with oily or combination skin: the GlycoShea™ Creams and AmberSoy™ Soap Gel. My family of four dermatologists has been compounding or manufacturing these products for over twenty years, and they’ve been used by thousands of patients in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi.

The GlycoShea™ Creams are effective as anti-wrinkle creams because of their Glycolic Acid, blended with an organic and natural moisturizer called Shea Butter, with some of the purest water in the United States, from the Memphis Aquifer. And they’re notable because they have no fragrance, no propylene glycol nor emulsifying chemicals like sulfates, no dyes, and no problematic preservatives like formaldehyde.

The AmberSoy Soap Gels are helpful when used as acne masks because they are beneficial in reducing excess oil in the skin. This technique of using these products involves putting them onto the skin, then leaving them in place for 3-5 minutes before washing them off.

The GLYCOSHEA Creams and AmberSoy Soap Gels are now available both on-site at our company headquarters, at 8143 Walnut Grove Road, Cordova, TN 38018, Monday-Friday, 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM, and also on our web site: 1-901-265-1189.
