The Detox Market, a natural beauty company hailing all the way from Los Angeles, has just relocated its flagship store in Toronto to a chic storefront location on Spadina Avenue. The Detox Market's new Toronto location is now occupying a retail space that was once owned by a fur retailer - which is ironic, considering the fact that all of their beauty and skincare products are vegan.
Laura Townsend, The Detox Market's Marketing Director, commented in a press release, "As a natural beauty company, we carry lots of vegan products however when we came to see the space there was fur everywhere it was really an interesting clean up."
Toronto's newest beauty market is completely devoted to helping Canadians live a more "peaceful" life, reports Retail Insider. "As a natural beauty company, we carry lots of vegan products however when we came to see the space there was fur everywhere it was really an interesting clean up," said Townsend.
The Detox Market started out in 2010 as a pop-up shop in Los Angeles selling "wholesome products". The company's lines of cosmetics are "curated passionately", and are rigorously tested for purity.
The Detox Market partnered with Bita Doagoo, a naturopathic doctor, in 2012 to bring the company across the border to Canada. The company made its Canadian debut as a pop-up shop at 367 King Street West, then grew to take on a larger storefront at 420 King Street West, until it ultimately made its final move to the retailer's permanent home at 116 Spadina Avenue.
"The majority of the makeup we personally curate is you can literally eat it. It’s food grade quality," commented Townsend. Some of the global brands carried by The Detox Market include Gwyneth Paltrow’s infamous goop, RMS Beauty, Tata Harper and Pai.
The store also carries Toronto’s Greenhouse Juices and Kombuchas. The Detox Market also carries several product lines specialized for men, including a wide array of oils, balms, teas, and shave products.
The Detox Market has also opened other Toronto locations at 96 Scollard Street in Yorkville, as well as a tiny shop on the retail concourse of busy Union Station.
