ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
From sourcing to formulation, production to packaging Kadalys makes no compromises when it comes to sustainability. Kadalys commitment to sustainable practices goes far beyond recycling and avoiding harmful ingredients, it has been woven into the very fabric of the company since day one and is considered with every element of the business. It is one of the reasons that Kadalys is well-known for its resolution in taking sustainability in cosmetics to the next level.
The value of being a responsible beauty brand informs all their processes, which shows that Kadalys cares for others and for nature. This brand put great thought into everything they do, which is why they share profits with planters, recycle agri-waste and use green chemistry to create our products. Their pledge is to formulate skin care that you can believe in, that is authentic and meaningful; we want our customers to feel good when they choose our products.
Sustainability activism is integral to the vision and mission of Kadalys, it defines our brand manifesto and is demonstrated by our actions of:
- Recycling waste from the banana industry to preserve our natural and limited resources, to control and cap our impact on the environment
- Following the principles of green extraction (non-polluting method) to develop our patented banana bio-active ingredients
- Developing clean, ethical and natural formulas: our products give back rather than take and they are all non-toxic, vegan, organically certified and cruelty free
- Eco-designing our recyclable packaging
Originated in the French Caribbean Kadalys is a business of firsts. It is the first eco-conscious beauty brand to upcycle banana agri-waste into patented organic actives exclusively developed to rejuvenate the skin. Its progressive use of a circular economy model gives back to local community and to nature. - Integrating 100% of the banana producers we work with as shareholders in our capital
- Educating women from the French West Indies to empower a new generation in the fields of science and business, areas that are under-represented and lacking in Martinique
Investing in young women offers an incalculable benefit to Martinique where the levels of unemployment are twice as high as in mainland France particularly in the under 30s. Science is a field that provides long term and diverse qualifications and coupled with a greater understanding of the world of business delivers multiple opportunities for the island’s labour market. This social consideration is indicative of Kadalys all-encompassing commitment to sustainability and being a catalyst for good that goes far beyond the realms of many cosmetic businesses. Kadalys is for the now and the future.
