Meet Saaf's founder

The founder of Saaf, is herself a force of nature.

Dr Mah Saaf PictureDr Mah Hussain-Gambles MBE, a leading pharmacological scientist, founded Saaf in 2004 to prove skin could be beautifully cared for with 100% natural ingredients. A long held fascination with “all things natural” led Dr Mah to train as a homeopath. This learning of how the healing properties of natural remedies could be harnessed in skincare led Dr Mah to try her hand at making her own balms for herself and her family.

She firstly created a skin balm for her mother which quickly soothed away the condition that no other cream had touched. This success gradually led to the range of products that you see today.

Dr Mah has combined the finest natural ingredients in scientific formulations to create a pure and powerful range of products that nurture both body and soul.
