You know how sometimes people judge a book by its cover? Well, it's the same with bananas. Bananas that look a little different or have some brown spots get tossed aside––even though they're packed with unique nutrients that are the key to radiant skin.
Kadalys is on a mission to change how the world sees beauty, focusing on what really matters. Because beauty is diverse and worth celebrating at every age.
This gentle, vegan exfoliator is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
Yes! It is very important to our founder Shirley Billot, a Black woman, that every Kadalys product be effective on all skin tones and especially for melanin-rich skin.
Bananas are more than just a tasty snack. They're loaded with vitamins A, B, and C, and potassium, all of which have wonderful benefits for the skin. Bananas are a natural alternative to retinol, an ingredient many find drying or irritating. And they pack more antioxidant power than argan oil or grape seed oil––just to name a few.
What's more, Kadalys Bio-Actives are backed with 10 years of scientific research and more than a dozen clinical studies.
From moisturizing dry skin to acting as a natural pro-aging remedy, bananas have been celebrated in various cultures for their skincare properties.
When dead skin cells build up on the surface of your face, it can cause dullness, dryness, and clogged pores that lead to breakouts (especially challenging for acne-prone and oily skin!).
Exfoliating peels remove these layers of dead skin cells to reveal fresher-looking skin and smooth away uneven texture for a younger-looking, healthy glow. Regular removal of the surface skin cells doesn't just bring the new cells forward, it can even encourage skin cell renewal. Smooth exfoliated skin can also better absorb serums and moisturizers, making signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles (and even dark spots) less visible.
Chemical peels and face scrubs are especially good for acne-prone skin because they help decongest your skin without aggravating your blemishes or spreading the p acne bacteria. If you suffer from frequent breakouts, use chemical exfoliation rather than a physical scrub.
Further, the skin produces fewer new cells as we age, leading to decreased collagen production, decreased cell turnover, and a build-up of dead cells. Chemical peels or acid exfoliators help remove this dry skin buildup, making your skin look smoother and more youthful. They can also improve the look of skin texture and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, making it an ideal step for mature skin.
Here are more reasons Why Should I Exfoliate? .
It depends on your skin type, the health of your skin barrier, and what kind of face washes or skincare products you use to cleanse it (i.e., gentle cleanser vs. harsh facial scrub).
If you're using a gentle cleanser + moisturizer every day, then using a peeling exfoliant once or twice a week should be sufficient to help you glow up. If you have mature skin, you might want to experiment with using 2-3x a week.
Sensitive skin types should limit their exfoliation frequency to once a week.

All KADALYS products are made with upcycled, organic bananas, so you can pat yourself on the back (you’re that flexible, yeah?) that you’re voting with your dollar and contributing to the reduction of agricultural waste – because sustainability isn't just about the planet, it's about leaving a positive footprint on communities too.
Roughly 1/3 of our food supply ends up in a landfill, and food waste is a top contributor to climate change. More than 20 million bananas––all chock full of skin-loving nutrients––are thrown away every year just because they're not perfect.
Instead of being discarded, these nutrient powerhouses will nourish your complexion. And that's not all.
