Since expanding to Toronto from West Hollywood in 2011, The Detox Market has become a go-to for green beauty lovers.
With two locations on King West and in Yorkville, each store is chocked full of the best clean skincare and makeup brands around. The company’s co-founder is a breast cancer survivor so the brand takes the use of toxic ingredients very seriously; you won’t find any at all inside, providing Torontonians with the opportunity to easily shop organic beauty alternatives to their everyday products.
Although you’ll find the classic major green beauty lines here including RMS Beauty, May Lindstrom and Tata Harper, there are a lot of great products available from lesser known brands that are both of high-quality ingredients and affordable. Here are some of the best all-natural beauty products we found at The Detox Market.
This is basically the green version of Bumble Surf Spray. The sea salt adds texture to hair while the organic aloe vera gently holds waves in place, all while providing moisture to your mermaid locks. Plus, its essential oils of rose geranium and palmarosa give it an irresistible scent.
If you want an oil-based cleanser to remove your makeup and balance your skin, but still want it to feel exceptionally light and silky, this is the cleanser for you. The Province Apothecary Moisturizing Cleanser + Make Up Remover contains avocado and raspberry oils to ensure its mild enough for all skin types. The result is a gentle cleanser that keeps blemishes at bay without over-drying skin.
Loved by The Detox Market staff and shoppers alike, the Odacite Wild Carrot Serum Concentrate is a go-to for maintaining skin’s natural radiance. Extremely concentrated in antioxidants, each drop of this powerful serum works to keep your complexion fresh and glowy while maintaining the overall health of the skin.
Goop products can teeter on the pricey side of skincare, but its Exfoliating Instant Facial is well worth it. The natural alpha and beta hydroxy acids sweep away dead skin cells as the plant-based cellulose beads exfoliate deeper, while releasing soothing vitamin B5 to leave skin soft and revitalized. Go ahead and skip your next facial appointment and try this instead!
The Black Clay Facial Soap from Osmia Organics works for even the most delicate skin types that are breakout prone. The soap also aids in the healing of highly irritated skin conditions such as perioral dermatitis and keratosis pilaris. If you struggle with any sort of acne, this black clay cleanser is sure to calm your skin in no time.
While it’s typically difficult to find an antioxidant-rich, non-nano zinc day cream that is easy to blend into the skin and doesn’t feel heavy, the Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream does just that and more. It’s protective and nourishing for the skin and helps to restore its vitality, health and luminosity over time.
With multiple shades and a soft, whipped texture, anyone can wear this foundation. The formula is buildable but never greasy and provides a demi-matte finish those with oily or combination skin can really appreciate. It also contains a unique Greek resin that refines pores while you wear it.
Made from premium raw and organic ingredients, Hurraw! lip balms are 100 per cent natural and vegan. Its formula leaves lips shiny but never waxey or gooey, plus the balms also come in a variety of delightful flavours from coconut and vanilla to more bold choices like root beer and earl grey.
ILIA believes clean beauty is more than just leaving out harsh chemicals and toxins. It’s also about adding skin-healing ingredients to keep our skin healthy and glowing. The multi-stick combines organic ingredients with the healing properties of vitamin E and shea butter to add a pop of colour and nourishment to the cheeks, lips and eyes.
As one of the top-selling cleansers at The Detox Market, One Love Organics Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil works to lift away impurities without stripping skin of its natural moisture. The enzymes in this cleanser work well to break down any excess buildup leaving the skin smooth, balanced and dewy.
