Mount Lai is a beauty brand rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine. We take a modern approach to ancient rituals for radiant, glowing skin.
Our story begins...
Mount Lai was inspired by founder Stephanie Zheng’s grandmother, who has been jade rolling and practicing gua sha for over fifty years. Her grandmother treated her skincare routine as a breath of calmness in her busy life. A daily ritual, an act of self care.
A brand rooted in history…
We believe in wisdom through the ages. Our products are based around practices used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, passed down through generations. Gua sha and facial rolling have been healing modalities used for centuries, shared from one family member to another, like our founder and her grandmother.
Our skincare products are formulated in collaboration with Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners, using herbs intentionally selected for their healing and beneficial properties that have been studied extensively throughout history.
A note from founder Stephanie Zheng
As an esthetician, it’s no surprise that skincare has always brought me tremendous joy. To me, skincare is a form of selfcare. It’s a way to carve out time for yourself in your busy schedule, a way to decompress from the day.
These are recipes shared from my great grandmother to my grandmother to
my mother to me and one I will pass down. We used the knowledge and
wisdom shared from generation to generation as the basis for our
products, whether it be the facial tools that bring you a radiant glow
or clean, non-toxic skincare with time-tested ingredients used in
Traditional Chinese Medicine and backed by science.
I hope you enjoy these everyday rituals as much as I do.
