Ingredients Feature: Rooted In Asia

No Emilie Heathe product is complete without an homage to our Asian heritage-- or power-packed ingredients. 

Our  Nail Artist nail polishes feature custom glass and magnetic overcaps made in Japan, and our  nutrient-packed formulas are infused with powerful ingredients, all of which have ancient benefits documented throughout Asia. 

Bamboo Extract

Natively associated with Southeast Asia, bamboo can also be found naturally growing in Africa and North America. Bamboo extract has been traditionally used in China, Japan, and Vietnam for its many  antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits in medicine, foods and cosmetics.

Did you know?

Bamboo extract naturally contains 70% organic silica, which is the richest source of natural silica outside of the human body. Internally, silica, which is constantly being depleted as we age, is an essential mineral needed to form anything from strong  nails to crucial collagen. Seems like a good addition to nail polish, doesn’t it? 

Bamboo extract’s potent concentration of silica provides instant nutrition to your nail beds, improves nail strength and promotes nail growth.

Sea Buckthorn Oil

Found in the high altitudes of the Himalayas, sea buckthorn berries grow in small shrubs and can withstand harsh weather conditions. Sea buckthorn oil can be traced back to traditional Indian and Chinese medicines, often used for its  natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
