The Zogan massage needs to be performed with the help of oil, or massaging cream that needs to applied to a previously cleaned face. Jukoko Tanaka recommends cotton oil, or also called golden oil. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, and omega 6 fatty acids. Moreover, it has a high amount of phytosterols which gives the oil its durability, and enables a fast absorption.
