We are a beauty brand rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
We take a modern approach to ancient rituals that have been practiced for centuries.

Our inspiration stems from founder Stephanie Zheng’s grandmother, who has been jade rolling and practicing gua sha for over five decades.

The 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.

Our hope is that you view Mount Lai as a place of wellness and a way to prioritize selfcare. We create your everyday rituals for healthy, glowing skin!

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.


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.

Reduce Puffiness + Fluid Buildup
MADE WITH
INTENTION

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.

Relieve Facial + Jaw Tension
NATURAL, CLEAN,
& NON-TOXIC

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.

INITIATIVES

We care about what you care about. We have made a stand to be carbon neutral because we care about supporting our Earth. We have made a stand to give back to communities through Charity Water. We have made a stand to support BIPOC people in our hiring practices.

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.
