Our story begins in 1979 with beauty therapist, Lilliane Caron. Working in her busy salon, Lilliane became frustrated with the expensive, inferior, difficult to use waxes on the market; so she set about formulating her own range of hard and strip waxes. Thus, Caronlab Australia was foundered and now is Australia’s single largest manufacturer of salon professional depilatory waxes and waxing accessories.
Lilliane recognised that it was not only beauty therapists who were in need of superior quality waxes; consumers deserved access to professional quality waxes too so they could easily achieve a salon result in the comfort of their own bathroom. With that sole purpose, Lilliane revolutionised at-home waxing with the introduction of the first microwaveable warm wax on supermarket shelves and continued to grow the range with a number of salon quality hair removal alternatives to suit all skin and hair types.
For over 30 years, Waxaway has aimed to make waxing a more enjoyable and less tedious experience. The secret to our success is in the professional ingredients and manufacturing methods used to formulate our waxes. With the wealth of knowledge, innovation and experience that goes into making Waxaway waxes, you can trust that every Waxaway product is made to the highest professional standard and packaged in convenient, easy-to-use formats for waxing at home.
All our products are made by Caronlab Australia. As one of the leading wax manufacturers in the world, we recognise our responsibility to minimise our footprint on the earth and make sure all our products are produced in a humane and sustainable way. We do not test our products on animals and we never have. On top of that, we have strict guidelines for choosing our suppliers – an important part of that is that they have to provide a declaration that they don’t test their products on animals. If they can’t provide this declaration, we don’t buy from them. Our Cruelty Free status has been certified by multiple organisations including PETA and Choose Cruelty Free. These organisations actively campaign to end animal testing that facilitates to market cosmetics, toiletries and other household products.
Animal welfare is only one of 11 pillars of our philosophy Caronlab Cares. Please click here if you want to read our full sustainability promise.
