At Big River Silk Skincare, our logo is Science Simplifying Skincare™. That means that our Dermatologists craft our skincare products with elegance and finesse, using science to create cleansers and moisturizers that help your skin naturally.
Both our GycoShea moisturizer creams and our Ambersoy Soap Gel are remarkable because of both what they do contain, and what they don’t contain:
Both products contain some of the purest natural water in the United States, from the Memphis Aquifer, a body of naturally filtered water that percolates through the Memphis Sands over thousands of years before it enters into our products.
Our GlycoShea Moisturizer also contains Refined Shea Butter, a helpful botanical product that comes from the African Shea Tree which has been used by people for over a thousand years to lubricate and nourish the skin.
And the GlycoShea line of creams contain a remarkable Alpha-Hydroxy Acid originally discovered in pineapple and sugarcane which renews the skin by allowing it to exfoliate dead cells from the surface more swiftly.
The AmberSoy Soap Gels contain that same helpful Memphis Aquifer water with refines soybean oil, a cleanser ingredient that originally came from ancient China and which we obtain from farms in Tennessee.
After combination with a soap making chemical and some mild preservatives, our distinctive and beautiful AmberSoy Soap Gel results, one of the few soap gels available commercially in the United States, useful as a face mask that allows a really effective cleansing of the skin, quite suitable for both oily skin and combination skin.
But our products are also distinctive because of what they don’t contain:
Remember that these products were designed by Board-certified Dermatologists, so neither GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream nor AmberSoy Soap Gel have any strong preservatives, such as formaldehyde, parabens, and sulfates.
We’ve designed them to be simple, so both GlycoShea and Ambersoy are free of what are called emulsifiers, so they’re free of propylene glycol, as well as sodium lauryl sulfate.
Neither GlycoShea nor AmberSoy contain any dyes.
Our theme is that simple, organic and natural is generally best, so both products are available in fragrance-free, though AmberSoy is also available in Mint and Lemon.
