Koppraia was founded in 2017 this UK based luxury scented candle maker has sustainability and animal rights in mind when designing their hand-poured candle collection and signature fragrances.
Their custom wax is a blend of soy, rapeseed and coconut, which is an entirely sustainable material. Since soy wax can be quite soft on its own, the rapeseed and coconut ingredients stabilise and harden the wax mixture. In addition to this, using a plant-based composition means that burning Koppraia candles does not release the harmful toluene and benzene toxins, or black smoke that come from burning paraffin wax candles. Koppraia do not have to rely on the petroleum industry for wax, and as such their candles are completely renewable and biodegradable.
“Koppraia was founded as a response to the widespread use of unsustainable materials and undisclosed animal products in the home fragrance industry. We are dedicated to making products that are a welcome addition in any home whilst also being respectful to the environment. Each scented candle features a distinctive composition of cruelty-free fragrances and our signature hand-poured wax: a natural blend of coconut, rapeseed and soy. We promote the use of organic, natural and vegan materials, whilst celebrating our key belief in dissolving the boundary between escapism and pure awareness. It might appear contradictory, but to us it makes complete sense. You don’t have to escape from reality to reach a state of calm; and an awareness of the present doesn’t mean succumbing to the busy distractions of everyday life. Lighting a candle can simultaneously be a form of escapism from daily events, yet still be firmly rooted in a consciousness of the present. This quiet sentiment is reflected in our minimal design, which leaves room for the fragrances to elicit unique olfactory experiences”.
