Big River Silk Skincare's Exciting Release of Alpha Hydroxy Acid Glycolic Acid GlycoShea Lotions

by Big River Silk Skincare President George Woodbury Jr. M.D. (11/26/2023)

Winter 2023 is here. The Dermatologists at Big River Silk Skincare are ready. We have you covered. We’re really excited to announce the release of our two new skin smoothing antiwrinkle creams, GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Lotion/Standard Strength and GlycoShea Hand&Body Lotion/Standard Strength. Years in the making, these two virtually fragrance-free moisturizers can be used once or twice a day to the face and/or body, to complement Big River Silk’s AmberSoy™ Soap Gel as a cleanser and Big River Silk’s Vanicream Sunscreen Sport SPF 50 as a morning protectant, to refresh and renew you for Winter 2023.

The GlycoShea Lotions are remarkable in that they marry the beauty of a botanical moisturizer - Shea Butter - with some of the purest natural water in the United States - from the Memphis Sands – and the antiwrinkle cream properties of an AHA or Alpha hydroxy Acid Glycolic Acid – originally discovered in sugarcane and pineapple. We blend these organic and natural creams into a smooth emulsion, fragrance-free, dye-free, sulfate-free, parabens-free, and gentle enough to be used several times a day – as a protective moisturizer while also acting as an anti-wrinkle cream (antiwrinkle cream) - smoothing the appearance of fine lines, improving skin texture and color.

GlycoShea's active agent is Glycolic Acid

After all, our theme at Big River Silk Skincare, a company founded by the Woodbury family of four Dermatologists of Memphis, TN, and Arkansas, is Science Simplifying Skincare™. So the designs of our skincare products avoid ingredients that are not necessary, like added coloring and formadehyde, while including what is really helpful: skin rejuvenating Glycolic Acid.

GLYCOSHEA Facial&Neck Lotion/Standard Strength: 1 oz: $39.95/2 oz: $59.95; 8 oz: $179.95.

GLYCOSHEA Hand&Body Lotion/Standard Strength: 1 oz: $19.95; 2 oz: $29.95; 8 oz: $89.95.

The GlycoShea Lotions can be combined with another featured product of Big River Silk Skincare, our AmberSoy™ Soap Gel, a deep cleanser well-suited to combination skin or oily skin. Available in Lemon, Mint, and No Fragrance Added, AmberSoy can be used as a facial or neck mask: applied for 3-10 minutes prior to rinsing off, for a particularly deep clean. (1 oz: $12.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz: $59.95).

Or if you are more at the dry end of the spectrum, Vanicream® Bar Soap (2.5 oz: $3.95) or Vanicream® Gentle Facial Cleanser (2.5 oz: $17.95) make excellent choices, for use once or twice a day.

Big River Silk has another blockbuster product for Winter 2023:Vanicream Sunscreen SPF 50 (2.5 oz: $17.95). This sunscreen is remarkable because it’s free of dyes, fragrances, and problematic sunscreen components, such as octinoxate and octicrylene, and most important of all, it’s quite unlikely to run into the user’s eyes, a real issue if you’re outside swimming or golfing.
