Nifty Holiday Ideas from Big River Silk Skincare

by George Woodbury Jr. M.D., Dermatologist and President, 12/14/2022

Big River Silk Skincare designs, manufactures, markets and distributes the GlycoShea™ Antiwrinkle Creams, HypoShea™ Moisturizer Cream, and the AmberSoy™Soap Gel Cleansers. All make nifty holiday concepts.

Our products arise from novel skincare discoveries of the Woodbury family of four Dermatologists, in clinical practice since 1965, in Tennessee. Check our products out, and benefit from observations, experience, and feedback of thousands of patients over the last 55 years, on how to achieve younger, more resilient skin.

Our flagship skincare product is GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Cream, a smooth blend of Refined Shea Butter and Glycolic Acid, an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid originally discovered in sugarcane and pineapple, acting as an anti-wrinkle agent by smoothing the appearance of fine lines, while improving evenness of skin color and tone (1 oz: $39.95/2 oz: $59.95/8 oz: $179.95).

GlycoShea™ Hand&Body Cream makes a great hand and foot lubricant – because its Shea Butter moisturizes while its Glycolic Acid removed rough dry scale from the surface of the skin. It also helps to remove sun damage – such as color splotchiness or dry wrinkled areas. Available in Standard Strength (1 oz: $19.95/2 oz: $29.95/8 oz: $89.95) and High Strength (1 oz: $$29.95; 2 oz: $44.95; 8 oz: $134.95).

Let’s not forget the babies and small children of this world. HypoShea™ Moisturizer Cream is a great option for prevention of diaper rash and dry face and lips. It also makes a useful lip balm. HypoShea is a smooth blend of Refined Shea Butter and some of the purest natural water in the United States, from the Memphis Sands. Free of acids, dyes, added perfumes, and formaldehyde (1 oz: $13.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz; $39.95).

But what about those teens and young adults who have combination skin or oily skin, and complexion issues? For them, we manufacture AmberSoy™ Soap Gel, one of the few commercially available soap gels in the United States. AmberSoy acts as a really deep cleanser, removing excess oils and fatty acids from your skin. It can also be used as a face mask, whereby it’s left on for 5-10 minutes, prior to washing off, for a really deep clean. (1 oz: $12.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz: $59.95).

Big River also distributes a gentle post-shower moisturizer, Robathol Oil, derived from Purified Cottonseed Oil, making a useful stocking stuff. 16 oz: $29.95.
