Acne-Wash&Exfoliating Anti-wrinkle Moisturizer-Dermatologists' Ideas at Big River Silk Skincare George Woodbury Jr. M.D. (01/06/2022)

Acne and cysts can have really negative effects upon a person’s mood and self-confidence. Fortunately, Dermatologists like myself now have a growing number of promising, new options for acne, cysts, and complexion issues, for people with dry skin, combination skin, or oily skin.

For more on prescription therapies used by Dermatologists – including oral antibiotics like doxycycline and oral medications like Accutane (isotretinoin) – see my post at

After 25 years of practicing dermatology, in 2016 I decided to establish a skincare products company - Big River Silk Skincare™ Inc. – to manufacture and distribute organic skincare products for people going onto prescription therapies. I incorporated cleansers and moisturizers that my family of Woodbury Dermatologists has used for years for Tennessee and Arkansas Dermatology patients: AmberSoy™ Soap Gel and GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Cream.

AmberSoy Soap Gel is a great cleanser option for people with oily or combination skin. It can be used as a type of face mask, wherein it’s applied to the skin, then left on for 5-10 minutes. Available in 1 oz ($12.95), 2 oz ($18.95), and 8 oz ($59.95), it comes in Mint, Lemon, and No Fragrance Added, with no dyes, formaldehyde, nor propylene glycol.

GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream is a helpful fragrance-free exfoliating moisturizer that acts as a face scrub, due to its Glycolic Acid, an AHA or Alpha-hydroxy Acid originally discovered in pineapple. It also helps to even out the appearance of fine lines in the skin, making it an anti-wrinkle cream. 1 oz ($39.95), 2 oz ($59.95), and 8 oz ($179.95).

Big River Silk Skincare’s AmberSoy Soap Gel and GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream are available for over-the-counter purchase at our headquarters, 8143 Walnut Grove Road, Cordova TN 38018, Monday-Friday, 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM.

If you or a family member has complexion issues or acne, consider first getting a checkup with a Dermatologist.
