If you are looking for excellent, natural beauty products, then take a stroll down Scollard Street and visit The Detox Market. This simplistic store, highlights their natural products with knowledgeable, and very friendly staff.
The green beauty store originated as a pop-up shop on the bohemian Abbott Kinney Boulevard in Venice, California. The popularity for the products quickly grew, and the Detox Market expanded to Hollywood, and made their way to Toronto in 2012, with a pop-up shop on King Street West. After three years serving the King West community, the Detox Market decided it was time to open a second location.
Kayla Oakley, manager of the Bloor-Yorkville location, was happy with the decision. “The Bloor-Yorkville area is an amazing neighbourhood, and we felt we had to be there! After we heard the store Husk was closing on Scollard Street, we knew that the Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood would need a new green beauty expert and we were up for the challenge. Like our King Street store, we take toxic ingredients seriously (you won’t find any here), and we pride ourselves on educating our customers on green beauty. We offer what we believe to be ‘the best of the best’ in non-toxic and cruelty free skin care, makeup and lifestyle products. We opened our doors in July 2014 and have been enjoying our time in the Bloor-Yorkville community.”
This year, the Detox Market began offering monthly “Master Classes.” The topics vary, but all touch on health and wellness. Their next class, “Makeup Masterclass with Kirsten Kjaer Weis,” takes place on Thursday, October 12th, 6:30pm- 8:00pm, 96 Scollard Street. Kirsten will demonstrate a look utilizing the new Lip and Eye Pencils, and will talk about her inspiration for this launch. Click below for more information and to sign up.
“We are continuously working to grow with the Bloor-Yorkville community and develop relationships to help support like-minded businesses and people. We are excited to see what the upcoming year will bring!”
