Montague Ashley-Craig is a Glaswegian cosmetic scientist living in London who didn’t set out to start a beauty line.

Monty studied Chemistry at Edinburgh and UC Berkeley + Cosmetic Science at London College of Fashion and has worked across the cosmetics industry for big brands such as Aesop + Cowshed, from retail to product development, to running R+D labs and as a Technical Manager overseeing production of tonne batches of product.

MONTAMONTA was founded in 2015 after a friend asked her to help create a handwash for his cocktail bar - White Lyan.

we’re now stocked in Liberty, are featured in press, supply amenity products to some amazing bars/restaurants/studios across the UK and still formulate + manufacture every single product from our East London lab.
