Sacheu Beauty Stainless Beauty Tools were founded by prominent beauty influencer, Sarah Cheung @sacheu. As a passionate, long-time skincare consumer and content creator, Sarah decided to create her own unique beauty tool brand. She did so, by combining what she’s learned as a seasoned skincare guru, along with the traditional beauty knowledge and practices from her Asian heritage, to create a set of facial tools and products you can love, use forever and feel good about.
Eastern Beauty Rituals reach the West
You may have noticed the giant flood of gua sha and facial roller tools hitting the Western market in recent years. However, facial massage tools like these have been a major staple in Asian beauty culture for literal centuries. While Sarah grew up in Hong Kong, she recalls early childhood memories of watching her grandmother religiously use her gua sha and facial roller tools daily. This resulted in her skin staying lifted, line free and naturally glowing, without ever having any botox, fillers or crazy, invasive surgeries. What used to be a simple and well kept skincare secret, quickly made its way to mainstream beauty markets. It was in this surge of stone-made facial tools that Sarah instantly knew she could contribute in a truly amazing and environmentally friendly way.
Why is Stainless Steal better than Stone Facial Tools?
From a cosmetic prospective stainless steel beauty tools are by far, way more hygienic. The vast majority of gua sha and facial roller tools on the market are made with porous stone materials like Quartz and Jade. While these might be super pretty and very popular, they actually have microscopic holes where skin products, skin oil and bacteria can hide, multiply and spread around while you massage it across your skin.
The Sacheu stainless steel beauty tools provide a “self-cooling” effect too, so if you don’t have a mini-fridge for skincare tools, these tools will still add that extra element of a low-temperature, to help soothe and relax the facial muscles.
The Environmental Advantage of Stainless Steel Beauty Tools
Unfortunately, the mining process of both Jade and Quartz stones is extremely excessive and is typically very unethical. The country of Myanmar produces the highest quality jade in the world and several high-profile accidents (mainly landslides) have been reported in recent years, claiming hundreds of lives. Not only this, but the excessive mining greatly contributes to the destruction of landscapes, agricultural lands and forests. Along with sedimentation, erosion, soil contamination and surface and groundwater pollution, air pollution, and causing waste management issues and more.
This is why Sacheu Beauty only makes 100% stainless steel beauty tools. Stainless steel is made from recycled materials and is ALSO 100% recyclable, allowing for a more eco-friendly footprint. It’s also super durable compared to the stone gua sha’s that can easily chip or break when dropped. All of Sacheu’s packaging is also made from recycled FSC cardboard.
How and Why to use the Stainless Steel Beauty Tools
The Sacheu Beauty website has an incredible library of videos and visual diagrams to guide you through your facial roller and gua sha routine here. The benefits of these routines are wildly impressive considering how non-invasive, easy and relaxing they are. The roller can be used daily and the gua sha 3 times week. Consistency is key to seeing results like: lymphatic drainage, which enhances the natural contour of your face, relieving tension from furrowed brows and clenched jaw muscles. It can also help define the look of your cheekbones and jawline, while lifting and firming skin over time.
