It’s time to celebrate the land down under. In honour of Australia Day we thought there’s no better time to give a shout out to some of Sukin HQ’s favourite Aussie Brands. In no particular order, these are the brands we’re lusting over this January:
Is chocolate your guilty pleasure? Well, guilty be gone. You can now be proud of your love affair with chocolate thanks to Pana Chocolate. Founded by Melbournian Pana Barbounis, her inspiration came from the idea of creating a rich, luxurious chocolate that the whole world could enjoy. Made with organic ingredients, all Pana Chocolate is vegan, handmade, raw, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten free and did I mention GUILT FREE as well as delicious!
With unique flavours like Coconut and Goji, and Sour Cherry and Vanilla, they will have you drooling in anticipation. Share the love with their customised gift packs, from Birthdays to Valentine’s Day, there is something scrumptious for any occasion.
Four years ago, Melbourne-based duo Sara and Tristan brought their backgrounds of Fashion and Chemistry together and created a beautiful hybrid concept, Alchemy Produx.
Inspired by Science and Designer homewares, their individually hand poured candles present in quirky chemistry glassware creating unique home accessories. Their candles are created with 100% natural soy wax and are all made to order. From Lychee and Black Tea, to Wild Fig, their candle scents will instantly seduce you and cement your love affair. Don’t even get me started on their packaging - It’s chic, stylish and leaves me never wanting to part with it. Whether you’re buying a gift, or spoiling yourself, be sure to check out this attractive Australian fashion forward brand.
Launched in 2012, Bare Blends concept was to create a holistic approach to wellness and nutrition. Offering natural and delicious whey blends using superfoods harvested from around the world, their blends became a recipe for success to help nurture not only your body, but your mind.
Harnessing the power of raw natural whole foods, their Blends are free of artificial flavours, sweeteners, and preservatives (ah, yes please). Not only is their packaging super cute, their blends are seriously delicious, and they even provide yummy Vegan options.
This brand’s reputation speaks for itself. Their products are utilised in many health conscious cook books, including the Aussie stunners, Steph Claire Smith and Laura Henshaw’s book, Keep it Clean. If you’re still not convinced, check out their blog to find some utterly mouth-watering recipes.
Dharma Bum - A person who travels through life living their purpose, doing what they love in peace, happiness and harmony.
After being frustrated with the yoga clothes that she was wearing during teaching her Yoga Classes, Founder Debbie decided to create a brand that provided beautifully designed yoga and active wear, which were designed, printed and made right here in Australia, under ethical and fair working conditions (feeling some serious love right now).

So next time you’re shopping for workout clothes, candles, choccies or blends, be sure to keep these Aussie delights in mind. We hope you love them as much as we do!
