1900 Face Cream Launch

Watkins put knowledge and know-how behind its products with the debut of the “Watkins Almanac, Home Doctor and Cook Book.” Customers referenced the Almanac for tips on feeling better and eating well. And, with the introduction of the company’s first personal care product, Watkins Face Cream, Watkins helped women look good, too. Today, the first facial care product has been reformulated into Divine Day Cream and Nourishing Night Cream.

Black Pepper

Sizes: 4 oz

Watkins purchases the best Malabar and Lampong peppercorns available. We prefer to use these top-grade peppercorns, known for their high essential oil content, in our exclusive grinding process because they retain more flavor. Rather than crushing the peppercorns into dust, we chip each berry into fine particles. This process creates less friction, generates less heat and retains the peppercorn’s essential oils.

Pitcher Relief

Cy Young Award-winner and former Minnesota Twin pitcher Johan Santana endorsed Watkins Liniment after his Minnesota Twins trainer recommended it to him. “Nothing gave me the necessary relief and comfort for my sore and tight muscles until I tried J.R. Watkins Apothecary Liniment,” said Santana. Much like the original product sold in 1868, Natural Pain Relieving Liniment uses camphor and capsicum to stimulate nerve receptors. Since then, Watkins has eliminated all traces of artificial red coloring, resulting in a product that is 96.5% natural.

The Watkins Way

From the beginning, J.R. Watkins has been committed to providing high-quality products and excellent customer service. Watkins first introduced the “Trial-Mark Bottle” and America’s first money-back guarantee in 1869. Relying on door-to-door sales, Watkins gave customers a risk-free way to try his products by adding a molded “trial mark” to each bottle. Customers who used the natural products and stayed above the mark could get a full refund.
