Our Story

Cindy founded Quirche Zorche Candles in 2012, with a mission to create a candle that was manufactured from renewable sources, sustainable and biodegradable, planet friendly, nontoxic, vegan and cruelty free. Cindy wanted to create a business that was conscious of its impact on people’s health and the planet and one that does less harm to the environment and its inhabitants.

After years of research to find the right ingredients to create an eco-friendly candle, it became obvious people were unaware of what they were burning when lighting a candle and the ingredients they were breathing in. Paraffin (petroleum), a petrol-based wax is mainly used in candles all over the market even today, which contains toxins and carcinogens (cancer causing) pollutants. Cindy was determined to change that building a business focused on creating positive change through Quirche Zorche Candles and in the candle industry.

In January 2012 we launched over 60 candle products and have expanded over the years to over 120 candle products which include Soy Scented Candles, Soy Wax Melts, Soy Tealight Candles, Buddha Candles, Beehive Candles, Pyramid Candles, Heart Candles, Kangaroo Candles, Koala Candles, and Christmas Candles such as Santa’s, Snowmen, Christmas Trees and Christmas Bell candles.

We source the best ingredients that are eco and 100% vegan and cruelty-free. We use 100% plant-based wax that is manufactured from renewable sources, sustainable and biodegradable, free of pesticide and herbicide residue, free of genetically modified material residue, free of animal products and residue and free of petroleum products.

We use phthalate free fragrances. Phthalates are industrial chemicals used as solvents in cosmetics and other consumer products that can damage the liver, kidneys, lungs, and reproductive system.

Our wicks are lead free and are 100% textile grade cotton made from a sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable source.

We do not use any plastic in our business. We wrap our soy melts and novelty candles in eco-friendly tissue paper and ensure all other packaging is recyclable and reusable.

We are 100% Australian owned and operated and will always be focused on providing you the healthiest alternative to breathe into your lungs, burn in your home around your family and pets, and protect the environment.
