Romain Gaillard

Founder and CEO
The Detox Market

Romain is the founder and CEO of The Detox Market. He was raised in Paris, France, by parents who were early adopters of the green-living movement they were exposed to in San Francisco in the late 70s. Growing up organic came full circle when after embarking on a career in tech, a friend’s battle with breast cancer opened his eyes to the need in the beauty industry for healthier self-care and wellness options. Romain took a leap of faith to switch career paths and pioneer the green beauty movement. In 2010, he opened The Detox Market on Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA, as a collaborative, short-term pop-up shop aimed at providing education regarding the benefits of green beauty while also exposing consumers to hard-to-find eco-friendly brands. After the positive response and several more pop-ups, he opened the West Hollywood flagship in 2011. As one of the first purveyors of natural beauty products, Romain’s focus has always been discovering and incubating new brands and showcasing the brand founders’ stories, which reflect his own passion for offering non-toxic beauty choices. Now North America’s leader in green beauty, The Detox Market has since expanded to seven locations throughout Los Angeles, Toronto, and New York City, as well as several Beauty Corners in partnership with Café Gratitude, the plant-based restaurants in CA. The demand for the best in green beauty has also made the ecommerce shop a thriving platform, shipping worldwide. The company offers a tight selection of eco-friendly, non-toxic, cruelty-free brands in Beauty, Wellness, Health, and Home. Romain has become a sought-after industry leader featured in publications, such as Forbes, Fast Company, Vogue, Well + Good, and WWD. He also speaks regularly on expert panels, including Cosmetic Executive Women, Cosmoprof, and IBE. Romain now focuses on working to innovate and reinforce The Detox Market’s commitment to consumer education and its mission to provide the highest quality, non-toxic beauty and wellness products for a healthy lifestyle. He lives in West Hollywood with his wife and two small children.
