CALYBIOTA® Bio* is extracted from the calyxes of the red kapok tree flowers.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 sinks.

CALYBIOTA® Bio* is an extract rich in polysaccharides, obtained using an extraction process that respects both man and the environment.

In October 2022, CALYBIOTA® Bio* won the Sustainable Ingredient Award at the Sustainable Cosmetics European Summit organized by Ecovia Intelligence in Paris.

CALYBIOTA® Bio* is a skin microbiota balance active ingredient extracted from red kapok tree flower. This tree is sourced by Laboratoires Expanscience in Africa, in a classified forest and biosphere reserve protected by a UNESCO program.

The red kapok tree is an oxalogen tree, which means it is able to store durably atmospheric carbon dioxide in the soil by transforming it into limestone. This property is very interesting for the decarbonization of the environment!
