Big River Silk Skincare’s Botanical Anti-wrinkle AmberSoy&GlycoShea

Did you know that natural, botanical ingredients are at the foundation of Big River Silk™ Skincare’s AmberSoy™ Soap Gel and GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Cream?

My family of four Dermatologists has been compounding or manufacturing these flagship products for over 30 years for Tennesseans, so in 2016, after 25 years of Dermatology practice, I became President of Big River Silk Skin Skincare. Our logo? SCIENCE SIMPLIFYING SKINCARE™. We use a minimum number of botanical ingredients as manufacturer and distributor of AmberSoy and GlycoShea, to help people with oily skin or combination skin to cleanse and moisturize while promoting skin exfoliation.

So here are several of my key Botanical Options for people with oily skin or combination skin:

First, from the time I was 10 years old I suffered from oily skin and complexion issues. I grew up needing a cleanser that would give me a really deep clean, without consuming a lot of time. The answer was AmberSoy Soap Gel, a resourceful 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. Best of all, 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: $13.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz: $59.95).

Secondly, GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Cream can be used as an exfoliating moisturizer once or twice a day, acting as an anti-wrinkle cream, smoothing out the skin, due to its special AHA (Alpha-Hydroxy Acid) ingredient: Glycolic Acid (GA). GA is a natural, botanical chemical first discovered in sugarcane and pineapple. It promotes exfoliation or natural renewal of the skin by acting as a gentle peeling agent. In making GlycoShea, Big River Silk Skincare blends Glycolic Acid with Refined Shea Butter, from an African tree, and some of the purest natural water in the United States, from the Memphis Sands. Best of all, GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream is free of perfumes, dyes, sulfates, propylene glycol, and parabens (1 oz: $39.95/2 oz: $59.95/8 oz: $175.95).
