Beauty activist, sustainability leader, skincare pioneer, social visionary, and empowering entrepreneur are just a few of the ways to describe Shirley Billot, founder of the multi-award-winning French Caribbean brand Kadalys.
The origin of Kadalys’s revolutionary skincare collection has roots in Shirley’s personal journey. Born in Djibouti, to a Martiniquan mother and French father, Shirley grew up between East Africa and the Caribbean. From childhood, her activist parents instilled in her a deep awareness of environmental and societal issues and the importance of making a difference. Focusing her efforts on her Caribbean roots, Shirley took innovative action to improve the social and economic inequities in the French Caribbean while also reducing food waste, a leading cause of climate change.
