Into The Secret Garden With Lucinda Law
DESIGNED FOR USE WITH COSMECEUTICALS
“Manual facial rollers are recommended over electric massage tools, because these may cause excessive pressure and irritation (being automated) and is also dependent on user training as well as the manufacturer’s settings.
Manual facial massage with a stone roller is a self-regulated process as the user can immediately sense irritation and apply just the right amount of pressure. Its materials are also skin safe, inert, with no risk of overheating of electric components.
The Dr.TWL Rose Quartz Jade Roller is uniquely designed for use without any special training. It is based on an ergonomic modification of the traditional Chinese jade roller to maximise the gentle hand rolling massage effect and to minimise excessive pressure exerted accidentally.”
-Accredited Dermatologist Dr. Teo Wan Lin
Yushi gunlun, as they’re known in Chinese, are small handheld wands made of jade used to massage one’s face and under eye, to assist with lymphatic drainage and depuffing of the skin. Invented during the Qing Dynasty, it was used by Empress Dowager Cixi herself and there is an elegant jade roller set with gold accents in the Palace Museum’s collection.
Fast forward to 2019, a peer-reviewed study published in a medical journal Complementary Therapies in Medicine led by author Miyaji Akane at the Institute for Liberal Arts, Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and colleagues at Tokyo Healthcare University and the Research and Development Center, MTG Co. Ltd. had examined the effects of using a facial roller on facial skin and blood flow. The study concluded that there was significantly increased vascular (blood vessel) dilation with use of the facial massage roller.
Verdict? Dermatologist approved. Using the massage roller before application of cosmeceuticals would increase the skincare absorption, leading to better effects on aging.
Jade Roller Rose Quartz For Use With Cosmeceuticals – Increased Serum Absorption
[Increased cosmeceutical absorption] Using the massage roller before application of cosmeceuticals would increase the skincare absorption, leading to better effects on aging. A peer-reviewed study1 published in a medical journal Complementary Therapies in Medicine led by author Miyaji Akane at the Institute for Liberal Arts, Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and colleagues at Tokyo Healthcare University and the Research and Development Center, MTG Co. Ltd. in 2019 had examined the effects of using a facial roller on facial skin and blood flow. The study concluded that there was significantly increased vascular (blood vessel) dilation with use of the facial massage roller.
[Ergonomic, noise-free use] No surface treatments or chemicals are used to ensure skin safety. The metal frame is a durable integrated (not soldered), triple-coated rose gold electroplated zinc alloy to prevent oxidation or rusting. The handle has been modified from the traditional style to be more ergonomic. A silicone insert is incorporated into our design for noise-free use.
[Cooling effect] Natural skin cooling effect without refrigeration unlike synthetic rollers.
