Healthy Skin Makes For Healthy Families: Big River Silk Skincare

Our skin is our bodies’ largest organ, so keeping it healthy should be a high priority. After all, healthy skin makes for healthy families. In 2016, I pulled together some of the best skincare ideas from my own 25 years of practicing Dermatology, and Big River Silk™ Skincare Inc. was born.

Big River Skincare designs, manufactures, markets and distributes the GlycoShea™ Antiwrinkle Creams, HypoShea™ Moisturizer Cream, and the AmberSoy™ Soap Gel Cleansers.

Let me give you a bird’s eye view of some of these products:

Our flagship skincare product is GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Cream, a smooth blend of Refined Shea Butter and Glycolic Acid, an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid originally discovered in sugarcane and pineapple, acting as an anti-wrinkle agent by smoothing the appearance of fine lines, while improving evenness of skin color and tone (1 oz: $39.95/2 oz: $59.95/8 oz: $179.95).

GlycoShea™ Hand&Body Cream makes a great hand and foot lubricant – because its Shea Butter moisturizes while its Glycolic Acid removed rough dry scale from the surface of the skin. It also helps to remove sun damage – such as color splotchiness or dry wrinkled areas. Available in Standard Strength (1 oz: $19.95/2 oz: $29.95/8 oz: $89.95) and High Strength (1 oz: $$29.95; 2 oz: $44.95; 8 oz: $134.95).

Let’s not forget the babies and small children of this world. HypoShea™ Moisturizer Cream is a great option for prevention of diaper rash and dry face and lips. It also makes a useful lip balm. HypoShea is a smooth blend of Refined Shea Butter and some of the purest natural water in the United States, from the Memphis Sands, and it’s free of acids, dyes, added perfumes, and formaldehyde (1 oz: $13.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz; $39.95).

But what about those teens and young adults who have combination skin or oily skin, and complexion issues? For them, we manufacture AmberSoy™ Soap Gel, one of the few commercially available soap gels in the United States. AmberSoy acts as a really deep cleanser, removing excess oils and fatty acids from your skin. It can also be used as a face mask, whereby it’s left on for 5-10 minutes, prior to washing off, for a really deep clean.

Big River Silk Skincare shipping and handling is $5.00 via USPS, but shipping and handling is complimentary for orders over $39.95. Check us out at, or call us at 1-901-753-0168. Or you can pick up any of the products at our international headquarters, at 8143 Walnut Grove Road, Cordova TN 38018.

And if you have an actual skin disease, my own Dermatology practice is with Rheumatology and Dermatology (, or you can find a Dermatologist close to you by going to the American Academy of Dermatology web site,, then plugging your zip code into the “Find a Dermatologist” tab.
