The Detox Market green concept store has ‘popped’ up in Toronto until December, offering luxe eco-friendly beauty and home products that hippies and divas will love.
Spacious and calm,The Detox Market store (367 King St. West) carries some of the finest hand picked ‘green’ beauty, skin and home products from around the world, many of them exclusive.
The Toronto store is the first in Canada and the third location in North America. Naturopathic Doctor Bita Doagoo visited the original store in Los Angeles, fell in love with the concept, and months later, the Toronto pop-up store was opened to rave reviews in time for TIFF.
The Detox Market is open till end of December 2012, and with any luck, will become a permanent store.
LUXE BY NATURE
My SIX favourite eco-conscious products score high on the luxury list.
Skincare so fresh it’s kept in the fridge. These organic skincare products are made to order and stamped with a fresh made and best by date. The products have a 6 months shelf life because the antioxidant ingredients loose their effectiveness after this length of time. No parabens, pthalates or other stuff you can’t pronounce. Smells AMAZING. A first for me and definitely worth your trip to the store to experience firsthand.
Justify the calories with chocolate’s well documented health benefits. This is dark chocolate heaven; the real deal folks: 100% organic, stone ground chocolate–and you can taste the purity of the whole bean chocolate. No waxy aftertaste as with regular chocolate.
Available in individual bars or as a sample of 8 different flavours: Cinnamon, Vanilla, Guajillo Chili, Salt & Pepper, Orange, Chipotle Chili, Ginger and Pure Cacao. The store also has recipe cards.
These vegan lip balms are not sticky, sweet, too glossy or too fragranced, and I love the range of natural and fun flavours such as Earl Grey, Licorice, Chocolate, Lime and more.
Hurraw! Lip Balm
4. Belmont Raw
An easy way to get your daily health boosting antioxidants. Raw Belmont will deliver a day’s worth of fresh squeezed juice to your door. Cups of the Kusmi Tea Detox blend, which has a superb reputation for premium quality tea leaves, are served for sampling.
Kide (pronounced kee-day) from Finland, are luxurious, mineral based powders packed with antioxidants like green and white tea to help maintain skin’s health. NO heavy, powdery buildup. Beautiful ecological wooden packaging made of Finnish birch.
Safe enough for children! Anyone seeking an alternative to regular nail polishes, this is for you. All the fashion colours you want in a water-based, odorless, fast drying, eco-conscious, non toxic formula.
