Isle our story

our story

Family owned and operated, The Isle Co. specializes in bringing you the unique experience of our soy lotion product line. It all started when owners Bob and Kathy Miller headed to South Carolina after raising 3 daughters in Virginia. They were ready for warm weather and new adventures. What they didn’t expect was to be inspired by a candle. But, they saw the potential in using warm soy oil as a body lotion and took that flickering spark of an idea and turned it into a flame that now shines bright through our signature Soy Lotion Candles!

The rest is history (in the making). Kathy runs the daily operations and Bob keeps the factory running. Their daughter, Becca, joined the team as the marketing and wholesale accounts manager. It’s amazing what a lot of heart, soul, persistence and an incredible amount of trial and error can do. In addition to our retail locations and online store, The Isle Co. product line is now proudly sold in storefronts, spas, boutiques and gift shops nationwide. So when someone says, “Did you hear about those candles that you can use as a body lotion?”…you can say “YES, that’s The Isle Co!”
