As Chinese-Canadians, we, the Founders, Joyce & Jenny have practiced Gua Sha techniques as long as we can remember! Honoring these traditional practices, we designed our own patented Gua Sha plate to enhance the efficacy of our face oils!
Each Gua Sha plate is made of thick, luxurious Bian stone, a stone formed 65 million years ago when a meteor struck a mountain in ancient China. Bian stone therapy is one of humanity's oldest medical practices, and is one of the first of four techniques in Huang Di Nei Jing (黃帝內經), the most important ancient text written in 3rd millennium BCE that has been treated as a fundamental doctrine source for Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Hi there, we are Jenny and Joyce, the Co-founders of Velvette!
We are sisters, and an Accountant and Cosmetic Chemist/Chemical Engineer duo from Calgary, Alberta, Canada! Joyce, a certified Cosmetic Chemist, has consulted for numerous multi-million dollar beauty brands in North America.
The tutorial video is a good guideline on some ways you can use the Gua Sha, but there's no set routine. Do what feels right for you, and feel free to share what works for you with us!
Applying a face oil first reduces friction from the scraping motion of the Gua Sha. It also helps the Gua Sha glide better for a more smooth and flowing movement.
Using a Gua Sha with the face oil can also help the face oil penetrate deeper into the skin, for enhanced moisturization!
Scrape at a 45 degree angle for best results.
Use just enough pressure to feel relief, but not so much that you leave marks all over your skin. The scraping motion will leave your skin a bit red and flushed due to the increased circulation, but it should subside within minutes.
Avoid scraping over any open wounds, and only scrape once the wound has healed fully.
This is all up to you! Some people use the Gua Sha only a few seconds a day to massage a few trouble spots, and some people like to use it for long thirty minute massage sessions.
Yes! Our Gua Sha come with a reusable velvet pouch bag.
After you are done your massage, wash the Gua Sha with soap and water, and dry it off with a towel. Place the Gua Sha back in the velvet pouch that it came with and store in a safe place.
Do not use your Gua Sha if it is chipped or broken. Our Gua Sha is made of delicate Bian Stone, so take care not to drop it on hard surfaces and always store it in the velvet protective pouch that it came with when not in use.

I use my gua sha for relieving tension in my forehead, scalp and neck areas. I'm prone to headaches so I had been massaging with my fingers before, but the gua sha works 10x better. When you first try it you realize it's super high quality stone. The weight, stiffness, and smoothness let it glide over your skin with the exact amount of pressure you want. I love the scoop edge the best!
I'm so grateful I discovered this gua sha! I had no idea how important it would become for my skin care routine. I love doing it every day and it feels so good. Ever since I started using it I feel my skin has been looking better. Thank you for making such a great product!
I'm usually pretty bad with self care but I'm so glad I tried this out! I didn't expect that much tension in my face/head area. Just imagine how good a scalp massage feels, but for your face. I've been using it for my neck and scalp as well. The scoop edge really helps with getting the perfect angle. It's just so wonderful and I can definitely see this becoming a habit. Not to mention the benefits for your skin. Highly recommend!
