Exciting Antiwrinkle GlycoShea Lotion and Cream for a New You
by George Woodbury Jr. M.D., Memphis Dermatologist 10/15/2023
The Dermatologists at Big River Silk Skincare are excited to announce GlycoShea Facial&Neck Lotion and GlycoShea Hand&Body Lotion for Fall 2023, as a path to a New You.
Exfoliation is the natural skin process for renewal, working against premature skin aging and wrinkling from sun exposure. As a Memphis Dermatologist since 1993, I have spent a fair amount of my day helping patients deal with prior sun damage and Acne Treatment. The Antiwrinkle Cream GlycoShea Lotion and GlycoShea Cream were the result of investigations into Alpha Hydroxy Acid Glycolic Acid.
Here are a couple of my ideas on keeping your skin more wrinkle-free, with better tone and texture:
The first and most important measure is to limit exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun and from tanning salons, incorporating use a “broad spectrum sunscreen” with an SPF of at least 30. An appealing choice – available from Big River Silk Skincare Inc., a company of which I am President, is Vanicream Sunscreen SPF 50 (3.4 oz: $17.95).
Fortunately, ongoing research in Dermatology has shown that a category of chemicals called AHAs or “Alpha-hydroxy Acids” promotes exfoliation in your skin, evening out skin color and reducing fine lines, making AHA-containing products into effective anti-wrinkle cream, improving skin texture and tone, and reducing splotchiness of skin color.
The AHA that penetrates into the skin the most easily is Glycolic Acid, the smallest molecule among the AHAs. So starting in 2016 I decided to work with Glycolic Acid, and now a company of which I am President, Big River Silk Skincare Inc., manufactures and distributes its own GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Lotion and GlycoShea™ Hand&Body Lotion.
The GlycoShea Lotions blend the skin-moisturizing properties of Refined Shea Butter, a natural product from an African tree, with the skin-smoothing antiwrinkle cream effects of Glycolic Acid, GlycoShea’s anti-wrinkle ingredient. We blend these components into what’s called emulsions, using some of the purest natural water in the United States, from the Memphis Sands.
The GlycoShea Lotions work well with use of Big River Silk Skincare’s AmberSoy Soap Gel as a skin cleanser. AmberSoy is a soft glycerine cleanser designed by Dermatologists. AmberSoy Soap Gel can be used as a deep cleanser in the morning, then GlycoShea Lotion can be applied as a moisturizer. Big River Silk Skincare also manufactures GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream and GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream as a convenient application for bedtime.
Ambersoy is a particularly effective cleanser because it can be used as a face or body mask, perhaps 5-10 minutes before rinsing it off. It’s most suitable for people with oily skin or combination skin, for a particularly deep clean. Best of all, Big River’s AmberSoy has no propylene glycol, no sulfates, no dyes, nor parabens. Available as a No Fragrance Cleanser. 1 oz: $12.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz: $59.95.
For more significant issues with Acne, or for Acne Treatment, consider getting a check-up with a Board-certified Dermatologist. Prescription treatments often include Retin A Cream or Gel (Tretinoin) or Azelex Gel. Sometimes oral antibiotics or even Accutane (isotretinoin) prove helpful. My own Memphis Dermatology practice is with Rheumatology and Dermatology Associates, 8143 Walnut Grove Road, Cordova TN 38018, or you can find a Dermatologist closer to you by going to the American Academy of Dermatology website, AAD.org, then plugging your zip code into the “Find a Dermatologist” tab.
