CSR and method

Red kapok tree flower

African plant supply chain

Our active ingredient Calybiota® Bio is extracted from the calyxes of the red kapok tree flowers. The calyx is the part located at the base of the flower; they are traditionally used in African dishes to bind sauces.

The red kapok tree is an oxalogen tree, meaning that it has the "oxalate-carbonate pathway" in its metabolism allowing it to form calcium carbonate in the soil, one of the most sustainable forms of carbon sink.


Calybiota® Bio is an extract rich in polysaccharides, obtained from the red kapok tree calyxes, using an extraction process that respects both man and the environment, patented by Laboratoires Expanscience.
