Natural Heritage

What Sets Watkins Apart?

People throughout the U.S. and Canada are familiar with our naturally inspired products. Just ask your mother—or your grandmother. We’ve been inspiring health and wellness since 1868 when Watkins first earned the trust of customers by offering the first-ever money-back guarantee.

Watkins began when 28-year-old entrepreneur J.R. Watkins had such confidence in his Red Liniment that he invented the famous “Trial-Mark” bottle. Customers could use the liniment down to the Trial-Mark line before deciding if they wanted to keep it or get their money back. As demand for Red Liniment grew, J.R. Watkins hired salesmen and founded the direct-sales industry. “The Watkins Man” quickly became a household name. See the J.R. Watkins Timeline.

Today, men and women all over North America have the opportunity to embrace the entrepreneurial spirit and join the Watkins family. Our Consultants take pride in the company’s rich history and quality products that are good for the earth, good for others and good for you, including:

  • Distinctive gourmet food products free of fillers and additives
  • Natural-based apothecary products that blend the best of nature with today’s modern science
  • Environmentally friendly home care products that are nontoxic, biodegradable and phosphate-free
  • Personal care products made with at least 95% natural ingredients

Success Stories

"Watkins has allowed us to reinvent the way we do business. After spending 35 years chasing after financial security by owning traditional businesses, the days of employees, inventory, huge overhead and long commutes are long gone. They have been replaced by Watkins, which give us the freedom to work anytime or anywhere, even in our Motor Coach."

Susan and Michael Laurino
Watkins Bronze Managers

"When we first started Watkins in March 2010, we were only signing up to get a discount on the products and to possibly make a little extra money. After reading and learning more about the company and the Watkins products, we could see the income potential, so we went full steam ahead. But then it turned into a passion we love to talk about, and the extra income each month is an added bonus."

Tina and Chad Griffin
Watkins Managers

"Tanya and I had good paying jobs that we don't want to go back to. We enjoy being our own boss, spend more time with our grandchildren, and experience traveling form one inspiring place to another. Retail selling is what Tanya and I do, replacing jewelry with Watkins to pay our bills. At every show we look for people who need a little more income or like us are longing for financial freedom."
