Antiwrinkle Cream Glycolic Acid GlycoShea and AmberSoy

by George Woodbury Jr. M.D. (07/23/2023)

Summer’s s a great time to rejuvenate your skin? Our Dermatologists at Big River Silk Skincare have put together a winning combo for the new you: GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Lotion is an exfoliating Glycolic Acid Antiwrinkle Cream moisturizer, and AmberSoy™ Soap Gel is designed for a really clean you.

So what’s so special about this combination? First, Big River Silk™ Skincare’s GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Lotion makes an excellent antiwrinkle cream because of its Glycolic Acid, originally discovered in sugarcane and pineapple. This Alpha-hydroxy Acid (AHA) rejuvenates your skin by promoting what’s called exfoliation, or release of older cells. Best of all, it’s designed to contain a minimum number of refined botanical ingredients, with no dyes, fragrances, sulfates, nor parabens.

GlycoShea Facial&Neck Lotion: 1 oz: $39.95; 2 oz: $59.95; 8 oz; $179.95.

Maybe you suffer from oily skin, from combination skin, or from complexion issues. As a Board-certified Dermatologist these last thirty years, I know what you’re dealing with, since myself, I grew up with oily skin and needing a cleanser that would give me a really deep clean, as part of an Acne Treatment. The solution became our AmberSoy Soap Gel, a resourceful glycerine cleanser that can be used as a quick face and back rinse – or even as a face mask – leaving it on for 3-5 minutes before rinsing off.

AmberSoy Soap Gel is botanical in nature, made from Refined Tennessee Soybean Oil and some of the purest natural water in the United States, from the Memphis Sands (1 oz: $12.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz: $59.95).
