Moute is the founder of Savon Stories and formulator of the recipes. Inspired by her grandfather’s storytelling, she took a History degree and learned to pay attention to detail and always trace things to their source. Moute suffers from a form of eczema that strikes suddenly and severely, sometimes causing complete hair loss. If you’ve got sensitive skin, rest assured you’re in good hands with her recipes. But, she believes, healthy skincare is only complete together with healthy eating, mood and character.
Ray, her husband, is co-founder and company director. He met Moute whilst also studying history at University. Raised in rugged and rural West Africa, he acquired an early appreciation for ancient traditions. After working as a historical researcher for television, he took his learning to clothe Moute's craft into a business - a homage to her inspiring grandfather and a heritage they hope to pass on to their future generations.
