The Detox Market pops up in Abbot Kinney, Venice, CA

The Detox Market is a collaborative pop-up store of hard-to-find, best-in-breed eco-friendly brands. Traveling from city to city the Detox Market introduces carefully screened green brands in Beauty, Fashion and Food to the consumer who wants to detoxify their body and living environment. Some of these brands are available for the first time in the US.

Did you know that state laws recommend that you dispose of nail polish in your city's hazardous-waste collection department? You will find patented, water-based, truly safe, nontoxic nail polish at the Detox Market.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, Valérie Grandury realized it was time to completely detoxify her environment. This journey led her to becoming a health and wellness coach and creating Odacité, a skin care line offering freshly made organic formulations. “In my years of coaching clients through detox, I tested and searched for the best non-toxic products.

The choices were overwhelming, sometimes deceptive... I searched all over the world and in the end, I found only a handful of products that I felt confident using and recommending. I selected the best of their kind and I’m proud to showcase them at the Detox Market,” states Grandury.

Behind each brand stands a passionate green entrepreneur, whose life has been touched by personal challenges, creating a desire to craft products that promote health and wellness. Real people moving in a new direction based on zero toxins and minimal impact on our environment.

“For small start-up brands like mine,” says Alissa White, Owner of Matcha Source a Detox Market participant, “This is an incredible opportunity to showcase my product in an affordable and urban setting alongside other likeminded companies. Being part of this group of distinguished brands brought together by Valerie is a rave endorsement.”

The first edition of the Detox Market opens November 1st through December 31st, on 1524 Abbot Kinney Blvd Venice, CA, 90291. “We want to welcome you and your families to a unique space and experience. Just come curious to discover our products and I am confident you will leave convinced,” says Grandury.
