Romain Gaillard was born in Paris, France. After a Master at EDHEC Business School and a Master at LSE, he started working between San Francisco and in Toronto. Over the years in Silicon Valley, he participated in several ventures as advisor or cofounders. From Web Advertising, Social Networks to Security Software, he finally launched Archivd in 2008.
At the same time he convinced Valerie Grandury to have the Audacity to launch the first company doing freshly-made organic skincare. This is how Odacite was born. Their vision was disruptive and unique : create the first organic skincare line prepared fresh for each customer, ensuring that each ingredient maintains its original freshness and efficacy, without the need for any preservatives.
Their first collection launch was an immediate success and the major newspapers and magazines started talking about it. From Vogue to the New York Times, everyone starting raving about the this new line of skincare. Odacite is now shipping in 22 countries.
In 2010, Romain founded The Detox Market with Valerie. The Detox Market is a collaborative pop-up store of hard-to-find, best-in-breed eco-friendly brands. Traveling from city to city the Detox Market introduces carefully screened green brands in Beauty, Fashion and Food to the consumer who wants to detoxify their body and living environment. Some of these brands are available for the first time in the US.
