About J.R. Watkins
Nestled in the Mississippi River Bluff town of Winona, MN., Watkins has been America's pioneer in natural living since 1868.

Almost a century ago its advertisements boasted "Just pure soap, that's all"... and "Pure enough to eat!" As globally-minded as its customers, Watkins now aims to make household chores a little easier with its newest line of J.R. Watkins Natural Home Care cleaning products.

Since moving from Plainview, Minnesota to Winona in 1885, Watkins has consistently been one of the largest employers in Southeastern, Minnesota.

Watkins products are made according to strict quality standards and contain only natural, environmentally friendly ingredients from renewable resources. They’re big believers in letting go, especially when it comes to eliminating artificial additives and colorings. In addition to a full line of plant-based home care products that are free of pollutants and biodegradable, they also have a full line of USDA certified 100% Organic Herbs and Spices and All-Natural Pure Extracts.
In many cases, the ingredients they leave out of their product lines are just as important as the ones they put in. In the J.R. Watkins Freedom Code, which they introduced in 2008, they pledge to remain free of products that have been published as unsafe for consumer use or unnatural. This list includes ingredients such as ammonia, bleach, petrochemicals, sulfuric acid and formaldehyde. They’re guessing you won’t miss them!
Their Freedom Code
You won’t need a decoder ring or a biochemist to help you read the ingredients lists for J.R. Watkins products.
They declare their products (and their customers) free from unsafe and unnatural ingredients.
Free At Last!
They believe avoiding potentially harmful ingredients is as equally important as including safe, all-natural ingredients in their product lines. That’s why in 2008 they pledged their commitment to the J.R. Watkins Freedom Code. They constantly evaluate their formulas and products to make sure they are at the very highest standard, and are as natural as they can be. They’re sure you can find the petrochemicals, bleaches, synthetic dyes and colors elsewhere if you really want them. With their products, though, you’re free to enjoy things the natural way.
Bath & Body Ingredients They Avoid:
- Chemical Sunscreen
- Formaldehyde Donors
- Mineral Oil
- Synthetic Polymers
“Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better.” ~ Albert Camus
Responsible manufacturing processes are as important to us as the commitment to provide natural, consumable items for everyday life. By utilizing gravity-fed filling, choosing soy-based ink, selecting biodegradable packing materials, implementing recycling programs and much more, Watkins is devoted to leaving the smallest environmental footprint possible. They look for ways to eliminate waste and streamline operations, while at the same time encouraging their vendors to use renewable energy and cut waste.
It’s not enough to commit to sustainability as a company – they encourage their employees to embrace sustainability, as well. In addition to celebrating Earth Day, Earth Hour and Bike-to-Work Day, they’ve started an annual Arbor Day tradition of giving all of their employees a tree to plant. They’ve also formed a sustainability committee, introduced a sustainable newsletter, and created an employee garden at their headquarters in Winona, MN that doubles as a sponsored garden plot for nearby Winona State University to use as a learning laboratory.
