Watkins Continues Its Green Streak
The company carries the
Natural Products Association seal of approval
We love running our All Natural Country Store, and being associated with Watkins, a company that continues to place great emphasis on its green roots. They go back to the early days of the business when J.R. Watkins traveled the globe to find natural ingredients for his products.
J.R. Watkins Naturals are produced using ingredients made from renewable resources, avoiding chemicals like parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. It is one of the very few companies in North America to be certified by the Natural Products Association. To gain certification, products must be formulated with at least 95% natural ingredients from renewable resources.
Back in the 1860’s, people on the Minnesota prairie didn’t have ready access to doctors, and most couldn’t afford to see one anyway. J.R. Watkins Apothecary provided quality products folks could rely on to make them feel better and keep them feeling better. And unlike some of the “snake oil” vendors out there, J.R. backed his products with a money-back guarantee.
Products aren’t the only way that Watkins places great importance on the green movement. You’ll find that all its products are packed in biodegradable boxes. The white cornstarch “peanuts” inside will actually melt in water.
Today’s new generation is drawn to products that carry the all-natural label. We welcome these younger men and women to the growing number of individuals, who are becoming loyal Watkins consumers.
