If you live in the city, you could probably use a detox right now — from the traffic, the smog, the pollution, the overwork. Planning a vacation in Venice, Calif. this Thanksgiving? Then stop by The Detox Market, a temporary pop-up shop that’s showcasing the purest, hard-to-find green products to help you relax and detox this season.
Tea drinkers can relax with a cup of Detox from Kusmi Tea, while chocolate lovers can nibble on samples of Taza Chocolate — made with stone-ground, organic cacao and just a few other pure, organic ingredients. Beauty seekers can try on samples of greener Aquarella nail polish or dust on Kide pure mineral makeup to see how a greener look suits them.
The Detox Market is curated by Valérie Grandury and Romain Gaillard, co-founders of eco-friendly skin care line Odacité. The two say that their green business introduced them to more green businesses and their clean green products — so they decided to showcase the cleanest and greenest products in each category in a pop-up shop, just in time for the holidays.
There’s certified organic Pure Provence French soaps, clean Honoré Des Prés perfumes that smell deliciously decadent, Suntegrity sunscreen that scores excellently on Environmental Working Group’s sunscreen guide, and of course, the full line of Odacité products.
Shoppers can stop by to enjoy a cup of tea, get a full skin consultation from Valérie, and take advantage of free manicures, tastings, and parties that’ll be announced on The Detox Market’s Facebook page. The Detox Market’s open at 1524 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, Calif. from 10 am to 7 pm daily until Dec. 31.
