Suravont was founded in September 2017 by two friends, Amanda Sura and Yvonne Tan in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They met in Perth, Western Australia when they were in university.
As friends, they’ve always loved hanging out together and doing or trying out new things. Exploring a business idea as a duo was one of them. It wasn’t until 2017, when Amanda experimented with homemade body scrubs as part of her wedding preparation for her skin and shared her enthusiasm with Yvonne, who thought it would be a good idea to start a small business. The rest, as they say – is history!
Suravont is the combination of both of their names – Sura is Amanda’s Iban name and Von T (Yvonne Tan) is Yvonne’s name weaved in.
They believe in mixing and creating quality batches with the best-grade ingredients sourced locally and internationally. All products made by Suravant are natural and suitable for most skin types. They are particularly inspired by natural ingredients that can be sourced out easily and blended well with their base mixes. One of their favourite locally sourced ingredient would have to be the butterfly pea flower, which turns their ‘Ultimate Bliss’ foot soak into a calming blue hue, and they are very proud of the result.
Suravont hopes that people who use their body scrubs and foot soaks enjoy them as much as they do when they curated them. There’s still a gap in the market when it comes to DIY pampering but they are positive it will grow in the years to come. Suravont is a small business with big dreams and they believe in producing good quality products despite being small.
