Brand creator, Shirley Billot, was introduced to Creole pharmacopoeia by her mother at early stage. She decided to create the Kadalys brand to unite her desire to valorize the ancestral cosmetic virtues of the Banana tree plant and her passion for plant research.
She launched a research program to study the virtues of the banana tree plant and developed the active ingredients the “Musactif”. Her research showed that molecules from the banana tree plant contain active ingredients highly concentrated with anti-aging, soothing and depigmentation properties.
In 2012, she launched KADALYS, the first organic cosmetic brand using Banana actives.
“The banana tree is a benevolent plant that has accompanied me since my childhood. In Martinique, families have a tradition of growing Creole gardens that always include a banana tree known for its generosity as a central element. It is so much a part of our everyday life that the banana tree is often taken for granted and yet it contains beneficial treasures.”
Shirley Billot – Founder of Kadalys
•I believe that beauty is universal and not stereotyped: a cosmopolitan beauty indifferent to origins.
•I believe that effective beauty must be authentic and natural: our research is inspired by nature and respects it.
•I believe in citizen products and in an sustainable and participative economy: All Martinique (French west indies island) banana producers are our business partners, we act together to optimize our resources and our impact on the environment.
I wanted to develop cosmetic remover for a lasting and conscious beauty.
Our active formulas reveal the radiance and preserve the balance and beauty of your skin & those of nature
