What are the benefits of banana skin care?

At Kadalys, bananas are at the heart of our business! Our yellow, green and pink banana bio-actives, made from banana pulp and peel, are present in all our cosmetics. For years, in order to offer you the best, we have been buying from local producers in Martinique and Guadeloupe who offer us quality bananas. Thereafter, during the creation of the products we do not tolerate any GMO, allergens, toxic substances or controversial preservatives. Our goal is to offer you the banana in its simplest form so that you can enjoy its many benefits! Today we zoom in on the benefits of banana skin care!

What are the virtues of the banana?

Second most consumed fruit in France after the apple, the banana has nothing to envy to the one which holds the first position! This exotic fruit, which is easily available in all food stores or markets, has been consumed for thousands of years by humans and certain animals (and no, not by monkeys!). A convenient and healthy snack, banana fruit and fruit leather candy, is high in water and carbohydrates, and that's not all!
It is also < rich in nutrients, minerals and trace elements (potassium, selenium, magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, etc.) but also in fiber and vitamins (from the A, B, E and C group). A regular consumption of bananas is therefore very beneficial for your health! Its high vitamin and antioxidant content makes it the fruit that takes care of our stomach: rich in probiotics, the green banana restores the intestinal flora in depth and strengthens the filtering functions of the intestinal mucosa. No more difficult digestion, constipation or diarrhea! Good for your health, but not only, bananas should be eaten ripe for a maximum assimilation of their benefits. The ripe banana is the ingredient par excellence that takes care of us on the inside, but also on the outside! In cooking or in beauty, it works miracles on the skin but also on the hair. Do not hesitate to read our dedicated article to have more information on the virtues of the banana!

What are the benefits of bananas on the face

The nutrients in bananas are just as good for your skin! Our body gets all the nutrients it needs to be healthy in a holistic way: bananas benefit the health of the stomach as much as the shine of dry hair or the beauty and health of the skin! More precisely, from a cosmetic point of view, the banana in its entirety, yes yes even the banana peel, has very interesting virtues that are not to be neglected! For example, its richness in antioxidants makes it an ally in delaying skin aging and the appearance of wrinkles by controlling the action of free radicals. The vitamins C and B that it contains also help to maintain a supple and elastic skin. In the Caribbean pharmacopoeia, but also in South Asian countries and Australia, the banana and the banana tree as a whole, from the flower to the leaves, including the stem and the pseudo-trunk, are used to naturally treat acne, psoriasis and eczema. This plant with a thousand virtues is venerated in traditional medias for its therapeutic virtues in all southern countries and is a sacred symbol in India (the reincarnation of the goddess of beauty and prosperity, Laksmi) and this for hundreds of years. The banana is a superfruit whose virtues are still unknown and for good reason! The fatty acids (Omega 3, 6 and 9) contained in the banana are very hydrating and regenerating agents. They nourish the skin in depth and allow to maintain the hydrolipidic film, and thus the protective barrier of the skin, intact. As you can see, the banana is a first choice ingredient when good hydration is required! In addition to the virtues listed above, our patented banana-based ingredients have three main lines of action:

  • purifying and balancing for the green banana
  • lifting and firming for the yellow banana
  • radiance booster and anti-spot for the pink banana.

The benefits of yellow, green and pink bananas

All of our patented bio-actives are made from the skin and pulp of the banana.

  • Thanks to its richness in vitamin E, fatty acids, phytosterols and polyphenols (anti-aging, repairing and regenerating molecules whose structure is close to DHEA), the yellow banana is a great ally in the fight against the signs of aging. It regenerates the skin, firms it up and effectively fights wrinkles. According to our clinical tests, its antioxidant power is estimated to be 21 times greater than that of argan oil!
  • The green banana has the same characteristics as the yellow banana and targets young, problematic skin that tends to shine. It is also highly recommended for combination to oily skin because it regulates the hydrolipidic film of the skin, heals imperfections and smoothes the skin texture.
  • Finally, the pink banana is the ultimate radiance ingredient! Its richness in rutin, a plant pigment, gives it antioxidant, vasoprotective and anti-inflammatory properties. The skin heals better, is more luminous and plumped up and pigmentation spots are reduced. After study, its antioxidant power is estimated to be 4500 times higher than that of argan oil and 3,000 times higher than grape seed oil. It is a real gem of natural cosmetics!

This makes our pink banana oil one of the three most antioxidant vegetable oils in the world, ideal for correcting the appearance of wrinkles. Its concentration in vitamin E makes it a perfect ingredient to fight against free radicals responsible for premature skin aging.

The banana in cosmetics, for a soothed, healed & revitalized skin

All of our banana-based cosmetic products are recommended for both women and men! As the three bioactives are complementary, the products are also complementary and offer complete beauty routines for all skin types. For those who wish to try a home-made mask made from bananas, we have a very simple recipe for you:

  • Take a ripe banana and mash it in a bowl.
  • Add one tablespoon of honey, one plain Greek yogurt and one tablespoon of our Organic Radiance Precious Oil.
  • Apply to face and leave on for about 15 minutes.
  • Rinse with warm water and apply one of our moisturizers!

To make this purifying and moisturizing mask even more effective, a scrub with powdered sugar and vegetable oil can be done before. Simply mix a teaspoon of sugar and add oil until the mixture is pasty! Apply with gentle circular motions and rinse off before moving on to the mask.

Whether in the kitchen or in beauty, the banana has many benefits to offer us!
