Mount Lai is a proudly Asian female owned 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.

Our Story Begins...

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.

Behind The Name

Our name Mount Lai plays homage to Mount Penglai from Chinese mythology. There are magical fruits that grow on this mountain with healing powers. Not only do they cure injuries and disease but also grant eternal youth.

We adopted the name Mount Lai because our mission is to be a source of wellness and healing for you.

Promote Lymphatic Drainage

Mount Lai is here to serve you as a source of wellness and beauty. Guide your whole body into a place of healing through a Mount Lai facial massage that enhances your beauty on the outside and the inside. Get glowing skin and mental rejuvenation when you make Mount Lai part of your everyday ritual.

Reduce Puffiness + Fluid Buildup

Each ingredient has a purpose, and each product we create is natural and effective. We do not compromise on the quality of the stones for our facial tools or the quality of the ingredients in our skincare. Our skincare is vegan, cruelty-free, and Leaping Bunny certified.

Relieve Facial + Jaw Tension

We create products that we love to use in our own everyday rituals by using effective ingredients that are found in nature. You’ll find ingredients like green tea extract or goji berries in our skincare. What you will never find us doing is diluting our formulations with fillers or using harmful chemicals because we want to achieve radiant skin through natural, safe methods.

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.
