A symbol of beauty in several cultures, the banana perfectly embodies our vision of cosmopolitan beauty, indifferent to origins.

A symbol of generosity, abundance and freedom, the banana reflects our commitment to a caring and inclusive economy:

The banana tree, the central plant of the Creole garden, is a generous, benevolent and altruistic herb: its large leaves provide shade to neighboring species and encourage their growth. In addition, all parts of the banana have a function and therapeutic utility. For nearly 300 years, the banana has brought autonomy, emancipation, mutual aid and the revaluation of the French West Indian territory to local populations.

In 1736, a royal decree authorized the cultivation of bananas by slaves in Martinique. Unlike sugar cane, which was associated with slavery, bananas had a liberating and emancipating image.

Even today, bananas are a symbol of participative capitalism: at KADALYS, all our growers are shareholders. What's more, banana plantations enhance the value of territories forgotten or neglected by globalization, and support the local economy, fair trade and responsible French production.

The circular economy is at the heart of our concerns. We give a second life to "forgotten bananas" by transforming agri-waste into active cosmetics.

Fruit of inclusive beauty

For millennia, theKadalï banana in Sanskrit, accompanies the lives of men and nourishes their imagination: the incarnation of Lakshmi, goddess of beautyfor some,symbol of lost paradisefor the others.

From Asia to the Pacific Islands, from Africa to the Americas, the history of the banana is that of atraveling fruit, symbol of crossbreeding.Following the route of the most consumed fruit in the world and its cosmopolitan origins through the centuries is a bit like following that of Men.

Like the banana, KADALYS beauty is diverse, exploring, curious about others:an inclusive beauty indifferent to origins, far from stereotypes.

We celebrate all beauties in their singularity, regardless of origins and skin colors. We welcome differences and encourage all women to love and accept themselves as they are.

Like the banana tree, we aspire to an ecological balance, by promoting natural and sustainable beauty that respects both our skin and our planet. We therefore encourage each individual to take care of themselves in harmony with nature, for beauty that is both personal and ecologically responsible.

Fruit of ecological balance

Emblem of harmony between man and nature, the banana embodies our commitment to a healthy and sustainable environment. The banana tree, with its capacity for rapid growth and environmental resilience, is a marvel of the ecosystem, contributing to the biodiversity of the lands on which it thrives.

At KADALYS, we take advantage of this natural wealth, using every part of the banana, from the fruit to the leaf, to create our cosmetic products. In this way, we support a circular economy, transforming what could be considered waste into premium beauty products. This minimizes our ecological footprint while supporting the local economy.
