The founder of Kadalys, Shirley Billot, grew up learning about the Creole pharmacopoeia from her mother. Through Kadalys, she launched a research program to study the banana tree, long respected for its cosmetic values. The research was successful and led to the discovery of Musactif, active ingredients that support skin’s youthful appearance by enhancing collagen and elastin synthesis.
In partnership with the farmers in Guadeloupe and Martinique, Kadalys supports sustainable farming practices that respect the needs of both humans and nature. With 95% of their plant ingredients sourced from organic farming and formulas free of animal products, silicones, parabens and synthetic dyes and fragrances, Kadalys embodies clean, eco-friendly skin care.
Q: What Makes Bananas Good for Skin Care?
A: For thousands of years, the banana tree has been a symbol and a source of health and beauty. In recent years, science has discovered a number of properties that make bananas an excellent source of skin health benefits. They contain a high concentration of antioxidants, phytosterols, polyphenols, vitamin E and omega nutrients. Each of these nutrients play an important role in the health of our skin, protecting it against environmental stress, addressing acne and smoothing skin texture.

A: 95% of Kadalys ingredients are either natural or of natural origin, and at least 95% of their plant ingredients come from organic farming. Additionally, all their products are cruelty-free and vegan. They’re also free of silicone as well as synthetic dye and fragrance.
Q: How is Kadalys Eco-Friendly?

Additionally, they work with farmers in Guadeloupe and Martinique to ensure plant products are produced following environmentally sustainable and economically responsible practices.
Q: Who are Kadalys Products Made for?
