Valérie Grandury is the founder and CEO of Odacité Organic Skin Care. She was inspired to create this all natural skin care line when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. This event triggered her to reinvent her life and reconnect with nature and heal herself in this journey. She felt like it was necessary to detoxify her environment, she changed her diet to a raw food diet and quit her job in the film industry. She then decided to learn about ways to heal holistically and became a Health and Wellness Coach. In Valérie’s learnings she found out about how toxic products were in women’s daily lives and wanted to create something that was non toxic. She turned to organic skin care and discovered than many organic skin care lines did not have an expiration date so ingredients could retain any active properties after so many years in a jar. Valérie created her own fresh skin care, where the ingredients were fresh and would have an expiration date. She started gifting these products to her friends and they were loved by everyone, and Odacité was born.
