Special Anti-Wrinkle Glyco- in Big River Silk Skincare’s GlycoShea Creams

by George Woodbury Jr. M.D. 04/15/2022

Dermatologists have long known that certain fruit-derived chemicals are able to refresh the outer layer of the Epidermis, allowing natural rejuvenation. One such chemical – Glycolic Acid – was originally identified in sugarcane and grapefruit. Being well absorbed by the skin, It works particularly well in skincare products.

Some years ago, the Woodbury family of Dermatologists started working with Glycolic Acid in compounded skincare products, for patients in Tennessee and Arkansas, to help skin texture, color, and smoothness. This work resulted in today’s ant-wrinkle GlycoShea® Creams, now available through Big River Silk Skincare, of which I am the President. So what’s special about these products?

The GlycoShea Creams combine the anti-wrinkle properties of an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Glycolic Acid, with the moisturizing properties of natural Shea Butter. We blend these two ingredients in a several different emulsions: GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream, GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream/Standard Strength, and GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream/High Strength.

The GlycoShea Creams are remarkable not only for what they do contain, but also for what they do not contain. They do not contain fragrances, and they don’t have dyes. They’re free of sulfates, of propylene glycol, and of parabens. They have no formaldehyde. In effect, our Dermatologists designed them to be hypoallergenic, with minimal risk to people with sensitive skin.
