Meisha Strykowski, Founder & Creative Director of Cocolux Australia

Australian brand Cocolux (Coco ~ refers to Coconut and Lux ~ Latin for light) has shaken up the home fragrance market by putting eco considerations at the heart of its product design.


​Inspired by nature, the brand’s luxury scented candles are made of earth-friendly coconut wax, at a time when the majority of candles still contain petroleum derived paraffin and unsustainably produced soy wax.


​In addition, Cocolux candles come in pure copper, brass and onyx vessels which can be fully recycled or up-cycled once the wax has melted.  Re-purposed as containers for flower arrangements, pens or beauty brush holders, they become chic home décor collectibles to mix and match.

Environmental VALUES

​By reconciling environmental values with luxury, Cocolux has hit a chord with trendsetters and key store buyers, securing prime shelf space at major department stores around the world in just over two years, from its humble beginnings in a Sydney home garage.

Inspired BY NATURE

​Meisha Strykowski, Cocolux founder and creative director explains:

“The idea for Cocolux came as I was expecting my second child. I had an addiction to scented candles. It is at that time that I started to look into the composition of the candles I was burning and discovered that wax paraffin was a bi-product of petroleum hydrogenated. I also learned about the significant deforestation associated with the production of soy and palm and decided to come up with a sustainable, all natural alternative. It took a year of trial and error mixing in my kitchen to develop the pure coconut-based wax for our candles.”
