Wondering why we're called First Sight Soap?
Here's the story.

My wife Jen runs the show by taking care of marketing and charitable giving. 

Mikel and I met when we were in our twenties, both working retail jobs on the Oregon coast. According to him, when I first walked into the store for an interview, he spotted me across the room and recognized me from a dream he'd had years before.

As I was ushered into the back office, the manager turned to Mikel and whispered, "Pick your jaw up off the floor." I felt drawn to him right away, too, and our hearts connected at first sight! (Truth be told, I took a while to woo. I was just determined to make my own way.)

When we decided to launch the soap company in 2012, we wanted a name that would inspire us to keep dreaming. We also wanted something that would represent how amazing and enticing our products are. Once you get a whiff of these scents and feel the luxurious goat's milk on your skin, you'll know love at first sight, too!
