Having learned about Creole herbs and pharmacopoeia from her mother, Shirley Billot created KADALYS to marry her desire to promote the virtues of her Creole heritage and the Banana Tree with her passion for plant research.
Through a research program she launched to study the virtues of the banana tree, Shirley developed new cosmetic active ingredients, called "Musactif," that help preserve the health and youthfulness of skin. Following her discovery, Shirley launched Kadalys with patented Banana Bio-actives in 2012. It was the first eco-conscious, high-performance skincare brand.
Born in Djibouti to a Martiniquan mother and French father, Shirley grew up with a deep awareness of environmental and societal issues. An early adopter of the now much talked about circular economy model, KADALYS helps preserve our natural environment by upcycling agri-waste and developing new cosmetic active ingredients that concentrate the banana tree’s powerful molecules.
