The Touch of Mink Story
That was Then
Family-owned since 1969 in Salem, Oregon, Touch of Mink owners,
John and Rose Simpson, originally started the business as a leather dressing
company. Mink oil was originally used to condition and waterproof leather products like
boots and purses.
How We Got Started
The Simpsons noticed that the more they worked with mink oil, the
softer their hands became! Realizing there must be a correlation, they hired a
chemist to help them develop a mink oil skin care line. Touch of Mink was born.
Initially, we sold our products at county and state fairs, later this would include hotels.
This is Now
Today, Touch of Mink products are shipped to international
distributors, sold at trade shows across the U.S., and reach all corners of the
globe through online sales.
Touch of Mink still enjoys making personal connections with
customers at fairs. We always hire local sales reps at each trade show to boost
the local economy.
The Touch of Mink Family
Our employees demonstrate their passion and commitment to Touch
of Mink through their longevity. They use and stand behind the products. Most
employees have been with Touch of Mink for 20+ years.
President Dennie Deetz began as general manager in 1982 and has
run the company since 1991. He still remains a key executive in the company. The relationships the Simpson's established and their
mission to deliver the best natural skin care line still thrive here at Touch
of Mink today.
