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.”
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.

"Silk" because our signature ingredients Argan oil, Camellia oil, Rosehip oil and others are "silky" oils and often called "liquid silk". The "Tage" in SILKTÁGE derives of course from Emtage - a token of personal commitment to the products, our customer's hair and skin health and the health of the planet.
