From Venice Beach to Valencia Street: The Detox Market

The Detox Market began with Valerie Grandury, a breast cancer survivor looking to wipe her health slate clean with a vegan diet and non-toxic skincare. She found a partner in fellow toxin-free advocate, Romain Gaillard, who helped Valerie source additional natural products for her clientele. A pop-up shop of detox-inspired products on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach was born, a Beverly Hills outpost followed, and now San Franciscans in search of a “dream team of organic and natural products” can be found on Valencia Street.

The French duo's curation of healthy products includes a tight, diverse selection of hard-to-find local and international brands. From beauty products, including the founding skincare line called Odacite, to tea, chocolate, salts, reusable water bottles, candles and literature, The Detox Market is a complete sensory experience.
