Big River Silk Skincare's GlycoShea Hand Cream During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Maybe you’re following the Centers for Disease Control’s recommendations to wash your hands frequently, to reduce spread of germs including viruses like Coronavirus, during this current Covid-19 Pandemic. Maybe you’re looking for a resourceful hand moisturizer, perhaps one that’s anti-wrinkle, too?

In 2016, after 25 years of practicing Dermatology, I incorporated a company called Big River Silk Skincare Inc. to manufacture and distribute an anti-aging AHA cream called GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Cream. My family of four Dermatologists has been manufacturing this cream for thousands of patients in Tennessee since the 1980s. We emulsify or mix Glycolic Acid with refined Shea Butter and some of the purest natural water in the United States, from the Memphis Aquifer, using mild preservatives, with no dyes, no added fragrances, no parabens, no formaldehyde, and no sulfates. GlycoShea is a refreshing remedy for dry skin.

So what does Glycolic Acid do?

Glycolic Acid helps the skin to release or ‘exfoliate” dead cells from the skin’s outermost layer, the epidermis, allowing new cell development. It was originally discovered in sugarcane, so it’s organic and natural by origin. It reduces the appearance of fine lines in the skin, improving skin tone and reducing skin splotchiness of color from UV ray exposure. So GlycoShea can be called an ‘anti-wrinkle cream.’ Its Glycolic Acid is the most commonly-used chemical peeling agent used by Dermatologists.

GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream helps to improve smoothness in the skin. It’s available as both Standard Strength and High Strength, for people with really dry skin.

GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream/Standard Strength: 1 oz: $19.95/2 oz: $29.95, and 8 oz: $89.95.

GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream/High Strength: 1 oz: $29.95/2 oz: $44.95, and 8 oz: $134.95.

We also manufacture and distribute a facial anti-wrinkle cream - GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream - with Glycolic Acid to help smooth the appearance of fine wrinkles in the skin (1 oz: $39.95/2 oz: $59.95/8 oz: $179.95).

The GlycoShea Creams work well in combination with a mild cleanser such as Vanicream Bar Soap (4 oz: $3.95) – and a fragrance-free morning sunscreen – Vanicream Sunscreen Sport SPF 35 (4 oz: $17.95).

These products are available for pick-up at our company headquarters at 8143 Walnut Grove Road, Cordova TN 38018, Monday-Friday, 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM, or on our website: ($5.00 USPS shipping and handling within the United States; free shipping and handling for orders over $40.00; $12.00 to $18.00 for Canadian orders, free for over $100.00 ).
