KADALYS

Raised by environmental and social justice activists, Shirley Billot learned the importance of sustainable, ethical beauty at a young age. With a desire to share the virtues of her Creole heritage, she launched Kadalys: A one-of-a-kind, high-performance, eco-conscious skincare line starring banana bio-actives to preserve skin health. With an inclusive approach, Kadalys products work for all skin types, textures, and tones. The brand does more than just create innovative formulas—it also supports the Martinique farmers that are a part of the upcycling and eco-extraction process, and brings value to the food industry’s waste by transforming bananas into quality skincare.
