[Cosmetics] KADALYS: Beauty at the heart of Banana Tree - Luxury French Caribbean Skincare
KADALYS of France is a highly innovative anti-ageing brand specialising in organic cosmetic products incorporating the unique anti-ageing benefits of Banana tree active ingredients into a proven formula.
Under the French Pavilion organised by Business France, the French national agency for international business development, at Cosmoprof Asia (Hong Kong) on 11 – 13 November 2015, Kadalys (Booth No. 1EF6D) skincare brand is seeking distributors in Asia, especially China.
Ground-breaking: Active Ingredients from Banana Trees
Kadalys is the first natural cosmetic brand with French banana tree anti-oxidants. It combines traditional know-how with the latest scientific innovations to create unique, anti-ageing cosmetic active ingredients which preserve youth and enhance all natural beauties.
Kadalys is owned by SHB SAS, a French-based company specialising in cosmetics created by Shirley Billot in 2011. SHB SAS runs operations in Martinique (in the French West Indies) and in Paris (in mainland France). The company specialises in researching and developing new active ingredients inspired by Creole medicine, the traditional medicine of the Caribbean region. SHB SAS has acquired particular expertise in the beauty benefits of active ingredients extracted from the banana tree.
For centuries, banana tree - Kadali in Sanskrit - has been providing not just food to men, but also feeding their imagination… Indeed Kadali is the embodiment of Lakshmi - the goddess of beauty for some, and the symbol of lost paradise for others. Called “the herb of a thousand uses”, this benevolent giant plant holds a special place in the traditional medicine of the French Caribbean islands where it is used externally for its cosmetics properties: soothing, healing and revitalizing.
Traditional Practice x Scientific Research
After being initiated into the traditional practices of Caribbean medicine from an early age by her mother, Shirley Billot decided to found Kadalys as a way of combining her desire to highlight ancestral banana tree cosmetic practices with a passion for botanical research. As a result, Shirley launched a dedicated research program to study the exceptional anti-ageing power of banana trees, thus scientifically proving that the herb is naturally rich in minerals, vitamins, phytosterols and polyphenols, which give it extraordinary anti-ageing properties.
After three years of R&D, Kadalys launches in 2016 two new active ingredients, which concentrate the extraordinary whitening and soothing properties. 100% natural and has been certified organic by ECOCERT.
All Kadalys’s anti-ageing active ingredients and products have clinically proven results: Anti-ageing, Repair, Firmness, Perfection, Radiance, Revitalisation, Moisturization, Brightening, Soothing.
