Organic products are in demand and used daily by hundreds of thousands of households in North America. Mr. Watkins would probably have never realized his "all natural" products would once again become the buzz as many are looking for ways to go natural, become "greener" and eco-friendly and to move away from synthetic-based products. In many cases the same product formulas he formulated are used today. The vanilla extract and natural spices products that won the grand prize and gold medal at the 1928 International Exposition in Paris can be purchased with the click of a mouse today.
The almost-400 products from this company can be broken down into four families of products:
1) Natural Gourmet Foods
This product group includes a multitude of spices and cooking ingredients such as vanilla extract, cinnamon, black pepper and the organic spices line which are all natural. With the rising costs of food, many Americans are moving back into the kitchen and food products are exploding in popularity.
2) Natural-Based Personal Care
This line includes the all natural line of indulgences and daily use products. The line covers literally from head to toe with All Natural Lip Balm and Beeswax down to tempting Peppermint Foot Care and cream, shea butters, sun protection, travel and gift kits and the popular body oils and body bars. With the popularity of spas and resorts, many are looking for inexpensive ways to have " a little spa time" in their own home.
3) Natural-Based Remedies and Supplements
The original Red and White Cream Liniments provide a solid foundation for this group of products, but, the real growth has come in the Natural Supplements such as the Superfood Multiple, Rezist Plus and Fruit/Veggie Complex. After all, the original name of the company in 1868 was "The J.R. Watkins Medical Company", thus, it's only natural that the remedies and supplements are found beneficial by folks today.
4) Natural-Based Home Care
As noted, J.R. Watkins was one of the early pioneers in eco-friendly or green, concentrated and natural products. One can find just about every cleaner imaginable from all-purpose cleaners, to laundry detergent, dish soaps and an assortment of bathroom cleaners.
Watkins products are available from distributors and retailers nationwide and offer a natural, eco-friendly and exciting way to spice up your foods, energy levels and home. The product line seems to offer some popular items in the all-natural, organic and eco-friendly line of home products.
