Desico is a traditional candle factory from Fiskars. The roots of our family company go back to the 1960s when Desico’s founder, Kari Toukolehto, started to cast candles in his small basement flat in Ullanlinna, Helsinki. Since then, for over 55 years, our family company has made solid-coloured candles from the finest ingredients using traditional methods. We are now one of the oldest candle factories in Finland that is still in operation. Our entire production from start to finish takes place in Finland, in our own factory set up in an old barn in Fiskars.
We at Desico cherish craftsmanship, locality, quality and traditions. Responsibility and the traceability of ingredients are important values to us. Our candles provide a clean burn, and no palm oil is used in their manufacture. All our candles are dyed using non-toxic dyes and made from vegan olive oil stearin produced in the EU, and clean, premium-grade paraffin. In addition, our dyes and fragrance oils meet cosmetic quality standards.
