GlycoShea Creams to Help Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis) by George Woodbury Jr. M.D. 08/29/2021

As of September 23rd, 2021, we'll officially enter Fall, which is a more drying, challenging time for many people with a type of genetically sensitive skin condition: Atopic Dermatitis or Eczema. In 2016, after practicing as a Board-certified Dermatologist for 23 years, with Rheumatology and Dermatology Associates, Cordova TN, I decided to start manufacturing several helpful moisturizers that my family of four Dermatologists have been compounding for many years - the GlycoShea Creams - to make them available not only in Tennessee but also nationally - though Big River Silk Skincare - a company of which I am the president.

What's the goal? To help your skin be more youthful, by reducing the appearance of fine lines in your skin, through the action of an Alpha-Hydroxy chemical called Glycolic Acid, now blended in these creams with Shea Butter to make what's called an emulsion.

Alpha-Hydroxy Acids generally help the skin by being exfoliating creams, because exfoliation is the process by which old, dead skin cells are released from the surface layer of the skin, and replaced with new cells from below, much like a tree sheds leaves in the autumn. Exfoliation tends to give a smoother, better texture to the skin, especially when combined with use of a moisturizer.

GLYCOSHEA Facial&Neck Cream is organic and natural, being hand-manufactured by Big River Silk Skincare Inc. from Refined Shea Butter with some of the purest natural water in the United States, from the Memphis Sands. Then after blending this cream with Glycolic Acid, we end up with GLYCOSHEA Facial&Neck Cream, or GLYCOSHEA Hand&Body Cream/Standard Strength, or GLYCOSHEA Hand&Body Cream/High Strength.

GLYCOSHEA Facial&Neck Cream: 1 oz: $39.95 plus tax/2 oz: $59.95/8 oz: $189.95.

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

GLYCOSHEA Hand&Body Cream/High Strength: 1 oz: $29.95/2 oz: $44.95/8 oz: $134.95.

Big River Silk Skincare Inc.’s products are available from our website:, as well as for purchase on-site at our company headquarters, at 8143 Walnut Grove Road, Cordova TN 38018: Monday to Friday, 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM. 1-901-753-0168. And we do offer free USPS shipping for orders over $40.00.

And being a practicing dermatologist with Rheumatology and Dermatology Associates PC, 8143 Walnut Grove Road, Cordova TN 38018 (, I’ll be most excited to hear of your experiences with the GLYCOSHEA Creams.
