What's the "Glyco" in the GlycoShea Anti-wrinkle Creams?

After 25 years of practicing Dermatology, I became President of Big River Silk® Skincare Inc., in order to manufacture and distribute the GlycoShea® Creams, gentle emulsions of Glycolic Acid with Refined Shea Butter, for my patients who needed help with wrinkles or premature skin aging.

Let’s look at the scoop on these creams:

Big River Silk™ Skincare’s GlycoShea™ Creams are effective anti-wrinkle creams because of their “Glyco.” The Glyco in them stands for “Glycolic Acid,” a natural and organic “Alpha-Hydroxy Acid” or AHA.

But what does it do?

Originally discovered in sugarcane and pineapple, the AHA in the GlycoShea Creams refreshes the skin through release of the older cells of the outmost layer of the epidermis, allowing new, younger cells to come in.

Glycolic Acid is one of several AHAs, along with Lactic Acid (discovered in milk), Pyruvic Acid (grapes), and Mandelic Acid (sweet almond). It is also one of the most effective AHAs in its Anti-wrinkle properties, because being a small molecule, it readily penetrates the skin. In fact, Glycolic Acid is the most popular AHA used by Dermatologists in chemical peels, used for people with skin aging, blotchiness of skin color, or complexion issue.

The result is more even skin color, improved skin tone, and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines in the skin (its anti-wrinkle effect).
