Valérie Grandury was born and raised in Paris and is now living in Los Angeles, and is the founder of Odacité. The name is a French play on "audacity," and the brand marries the best of two worlds: luxurious French skin care and green California living. It all started after she was diagnosed with breast cancer and realized that if she wanted to heal, she needed to change everything. She embarked in a life-changing healing journey, quit her job, went back to school to become a health and wellness coach, adopted a raw vegan diet, started yoga and meditation daily. Odacité products have been featured in Instyle, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, and Vanity Fair.
