SILKTÁGE was founded to celebrate and elevate cultural natural beauty solutions.
Rooted in ancient wisdom, inspired by modern-day rituals and balanced by botanicals.
About Our Founder, Robin Emtage
Growing up, Robin was captivated by her grandmother of Trinidadian and Venezuelan descent, who concocted many health and beauty remedies using ingredients from right outside her front door, including aloe vera and soursop. The latter was everywhere and was consumed at every opportunity. Robin experienced the transformative results of such natural treatments firsthand and devoted herself to learning more about holistic care, and natural beauty. Inspired by this ancient wisdom, cultural rituals, and her grandmother’s affinity for natural ingredients, Robin felt compelled to create natural solutions that improve the health and appearance of one’s hair and skin. This marked the beginning of SILKTAGE.
Your Sole Source for Soursop
At the onset of our brand, we made a promise to create 100% natural and organic solutions, knowing it would require time and dedication. Recalling her childhood, Robin thought of soursop and its many benefits for hair and skin. This remarkable fruit is rich in vitamin C and is believed to kill or prevent the formation of cancer cells.
Knowing we couldn't withhold its power from the public, we sought to incorporate soursop's antioxidant-rich oil and skin extract into our formulas despite its inaccessibility in the US. This long-awaited, exclusive ingredient provides SILKTÁGE with a rare element that restores, rejuvenates, and revitalizes your glow with each use.
These signature ingredients only scratch the surface of what you can expect from SILKTÁGE. Though our process is rooted in ancient remedies, we take a modern approach to accommodate the needs of people today, combining rich blends of centuries-old ingredients, including aloe vera, organ oil, rosehip oil, camellia oil, hibiscus, nopal cactus, moringa, marula, shea, turmeric, and more.
