MINĒRA is a porcelain tool for self-massage designed to restore blood circulation and the skin’s natural radiance. It is inspired by gua sha facial therapy, a practice whose benefits have been demonstrated by Traditional Chinese Medicine for nearly a millennium.
Handmade in Canada, Minēra is a minimalist and durable tool for self-care that helps reveal the unique, natural beauty of each person.
And because we can only thrive if our communities are thriving, MINĒRA donates 2% of its profits to the Chinese Family Service of Greater Montreal
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the difference between Minēra and other gua sha on the market?
Both are hypoallergenic, antibacterial, non-porous, heat-conductive and washable, but Minēra porcelain is handcrafted by ceramicists in Canada, from a 100% natural blend of kaolin, quartz, and feldspar.
What is the difference between Minēra and a jade or quartz roller?
Minēra does everything a roller can do, but the opposite isn’t quite true… Because with its grip and curves, Minēra allows for a more complete face and neck massage.
Is it easy to break Minēra?
Minēra porcelain is extremely strong and could literally last you several lifetimes before breaking down. Its natural, matte texture gives it a solid grip, so you have little chance of dropping it. But since porcelain is not very resistant to impact, if you have the misfortune to break it, we have covered the blow thanks to our 2-Year Worry-Free Policy (see below).
How often should Minēra be used?
You can use Minēra every day, in the morning or in the evening. Some people make it a weekly ritual rather than a daily one. One thing is certain: the more often you use it, the more you feel good and the more results you see!
Can it be used elsewhere on the body?
Yes! We particularly like to massage Minēra on the trapezoids with strong pressure in order to relax the muscles of this region which is often tense.
Which movements are not recommended?
Descending instead of ascending movements, which would have the opposite effect of a lift! Also, too little pressure would have no effect while too much pressure could damage the skin tissue.
What is the best way to clean the tool?
Simply with hot water and soap!
