Your Great Smile with GlycoShea Lotion or Cream or Oil with Glycolic Acid

by Big River Silk Skincare President George Woodbury Jr. M.D. (10/26/2023)

Let’s face it: your smile is pretty important. It’s your gateway to the world and a big asset in building relationships. Managing your stress level with ample amounts of aerobic exercise helps to build a radiant smile. Dermatologists like me can also help our patients with their smiles. Injectable fillers and Botox are options for some, but there are many simpler measures, like Alpha Hydroxy Acid Glycolic Acid in exfoliating moisturizer cream - like GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream or Lotion or Oil.

So what about wrinkles from prior sun exposure? After talking to patients for years about anti wrinkle cream options, I became President of Big River Silk™ Skincare Inc., to design, manufacture, and distribute anti-wrinkle cream and lotion to help people improve their smiles:

Our GlycoShea™ Cream contains an organic anti-wrinkle cream ingredient called Glycolic Acid, what’s called an Alpha Hydroxy Acid, first discovered in sugarcane and pineapple. So it makes for organic cream or natural cream because it originated in nature.

As President of Big River Silk Skincare, I created GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream, GlycoShea Facial&Neck Lotion, and GylcoShea Facial&Neck Oil, to allow you to choose your skincare. If you’re more oily, or if you have combination skin, the Lotion form – free of fragrances and easy to apply – is appealing. If you’re more dry, the Cream or even the Oil form may be better options. You can customize your skincare to how oily you are. You could even use the Lotion in the day, and the cream at night. You can thereby customize your skincare choices.

The GlycoShea lines are antiwrinkle creams because they improve skin texture and tone, being fragrance-free cream, dye-free cream, perfume-free cream, formaldehyde-free cream, and sulfate-free cream, with Refined Shea Butter and some of the purest natural water in the United States, from the Memphis Sands:

GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Cream or Lotion or Oil: 1 oz: $39.95/2 oz: $59.95/8 oz; $179.95.

GycoShea™ Hand&Body Cream or Lotion or Oil: 1 oz: $19.95/2 oz; $29.95/8 oz: $89.95.

Our AmberSoy™ Soap Gel lines are excellent cleansers for people with oily skin or combination skin, because being a gel, the AmberSoy products can be used as a face mask, being left on for 3-10 minutes, prior to washing off, leaving you with a really deep clean:

AmberSoy Soap Gel/No Fragrance Added: 1 oz: $12.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz; $59.95.

AmberSoy Soap Gel/Mint: 1 oz: $12.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz; $59.95.

AmberSoy Soap Gel/Lemon: 1 oz: $12.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz; $59.95.

Vanicream® Gentle Facial Cleanser is a helpful cleanser for people with dry skin, being fragrance-free ($11.95). We also provide Vanicream® Bar Soap ($3.95), both gentle and free of propylene glycol, dyes, and perfumes.

Big River Silk Skincare also offers a fragrance-free, zinc oxide-based sunscreen: Vanicream Sunscreen Sport SPF 50. Vanicream is notable for being water-resistant, so it’s much less likely to run into a person’s eyes with active outdoors activities. 4 oz: $17.95.

All of Big River Silk Skincare’s products are available for pick-up at 8143 Walnut Grove Road, Cordova TN 38018, Monday-Friday, 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM (1-901-753-0168). $5.00 U.S.P.S. shipping/handling for orders under $40.00/ complimentary above $40.00 ($10.00 for Canadian orders under $75.00).
