From Venice Beach to Valencia Street: The Detox Market (DRAFT)

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.
