by Memphis Dermatologist George Woodbury Jr. M.D. (07/08/2024)


Dermatologists like myself often recommend what are called Exfoliating Moisturizer for people with Eczema, Atopic Dermatitis, and Psoriasis, and even acne, because they renew the outmost layer of your skin’s Epidermis.

Exfoliating Moisturizer is a type of Antiwrinkle Cream

  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 moisturizers containing an Antiwrinkle Cream ingredient called Glycolic Acid, an Alpha Hydroxy Acid. I incorporated Glycolic Acid into GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Lotion and Cream and GlycoShea™ Hand&Body Lotion and Cream because these moisturizers can act as antiwrinkle Creams to improve skin color, texture, and tone.


  GlycoShea Facial&Neck Lotion is a helpful fragrance-free exfoliating moisturizer that acts in skin rejunvenation, due to its Glycolic Acid, an AHA or Alpha-hydroxy Acid originally discovered in pineapple, making it into an organic moisturizer or exfoliating moisturizer. GlycoShea Facial&Neck Lotion helps to even out the appearance of fine lines in the skin, making it an anti-wrinkle cream. 1 oz ($45.95), 2 oz ($68.95), and 8 oz ($229.95).

  GlycoShea Hand&Body Lotion is a helpful fragrance-free exfoliating moisturizer that helps you to cope with dryness of hands and feet, due to its Refined Shea Butter, but with the added qualities of its Glycolic Acid. We also manufacture GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream as a fortified moisturizer with a higher content of Refined Shea Butter, particularly useful if you use your hands – for young parents doing lots of laundry, electricians, surgeons, bakers, and nurses  1 oz ($22.95), 2 oz ($34.95), and 8 oz ($114.95).
