Q&A with the Founder of Odacite - Valerie Grandury
Posted on November 10 2015
For a new customer trying out your brand what would you suggest as their skincare routine?
-Morning and Night CLEANSE with Gentle rejuvenating cleanser
- Morning MOISTURIZE & TREAT with Oleosomes Time release Delivery Cream (OTRDC) + 2-3 drops Serum Concentrate targeted to your skin’s needs
- Night REPAIR & TREAT with OTRDC + 2-3 drops of Serum Concentrate targeted to your skin’s needs. (if you want enhanced anti-aging results switch OTRDC with the Night Time Repair Serum)
What is the best beauty advice you have received?
Target your skin routine. No skin stays the same, in fact it may change from morning to night, due to outside factors such as weather, stress, pollution, diet, cycle, sleep. So you need to target your skin routine to achieve flawless skin. This is why I creates 18 serum concentrate so you can tailor your skin routine to whatever life is throwing your way. For example wake up with dehydrated skin, add a couple of HYDRATION SERUM CONCENTRATE Po+R, go to bed with a pimple flaring spot treat with a couple drops of PIMPLE SERUM CONCENTRATE Bl+C
What is one product in your line that you absolutely cannot live without and why?
Autumn On The World. This 15% vitamin C is the winner when it comes to serious anti- aging boost. We use the most advanced form of Vitamin C that has shown to be five times more potent than other Vitamin C compounds. Because it is lipid soluble (like the lipid-rich skin barrier) it has a higher rate of penetration into the deeper layers of the skin, where it can stimulate collagen production. Collagen is the key to healthy skin, as it provides skin with the support it needs to stay firm and youthful. Research also shows that Vitamin C acts as a potent radiance booster, reducing melanin production and brightening the skin. I use it in combination with the Oleosomes Time Release Delivery cream to ensure delivery throughout the day.
What has been the most challenging part of your journey creating this brand?
Convincing people that natural works better than chemical laden products. What is amazing with well-formulated natural products is that they work so much faster and better. Because there is no filler or harsh chemical the skin is transformed within days. My clients always tell me that they feel like their skin is alive again. Tone and texture is stimulated, thanks to the bioavailable vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and the fresh healthy glow is restored so quickly.
What can we expect from your brand in the near future?
Right now I'm working with dancers of the Paris Opera to create a 100% natural oil cleanser that removes all the heavy makeup and impurities from the skin after their performance.
What sets you apart from your competitors?
Customization. One of the thing that is unique to Odacité is that I come from creating custom formulas for private clients. All my products are sculpted on people’s skin, addressing very specific skin concern. For the Oleosomes Time Release Delivery Crème I sculpted it on the skin of stewardess from all over the world. Flight attendants have it the toughest when it comes to keeping their skin healthy. OTRDC allows for a delivery of actives and hydration throughout long hauls, and for you and me all throughout the day or night.
