SILKTAGE

OUR BRAND STORY

MEET ROBIN EMTAGE, FOUNDER

"For centuries before the existence of synthetic and chemical-based hair and skincare products, women relied on the botanical-based resources around them for use in their beauty rituals. Their wisdom is being borne out today in the efficacy and proliferation of all-natural beauty products using pure botanical oils indigenous to countries around the world.”
Robin Emtage

SILKTÁGE was founded by stylist and holistic beauty expert Robin Emtage on the belief that the world’s most ancient beauty secrets are still its most powerful. In 2013 she introduced her first collection of 100% pure botanical beauty oils sourced from around the globe and inspired by centuries self-care rituals favored by women known for their beautiful hair and skin. Emtage has spent years studying the benefits of the ingredients used in these rituals and formulating products that restore radiance and health to skin and hair of women of all ages and skin types.

Robin Emtage devoted her career to helping actresses and models look their best.  While working on her high-profile clients, Robin became frustrated that most styling serums and oils in the marketplace were full of silicones, harsh chemicals, and preservatives, giving the hair an artificial shine instead of nutrients. So she decided to create her own.

Her passion and knowledge of natural beauty remedies began after growing up watching her grandmother in Trinidad use local plants and herbs to heal burns, cuts, eczema and dry skin, and make coconut oil for the hair and skin.

She saw an opportunity to draw from ancient wisdom. Robin went on a quest to find a natural alternative, something truly pure and natural that would improve the health of the hair while making it silky, smooth, and shiny. 

She started making a hair oil in her kitchen, using some of the most sort after pure, natural, organic botanical oils from regions where women are known for their beautiful hair, drawing inspiration by ancient beauty traditions from around the world.  She began using it on herself and clients with great results and SILKTÁGE was born.
