I stumbled across this J.R. Watkins dishsoap recently during a trip to Target for some routine household items. Shopping trips are kinda good for that sometimes. Immediately the product caught my eye, firstly because it stood out from all of the other dish soaps on the shelves but also because it was on sale! Hey…I don’t know about you but I can’t ever deny a good bargain.
I can honestly say before this encounter I was unfamiliar with J.R. Watkins and its great suite of “natural” products.
It’s a little different than all the other products providing a similar service, don’t you think? Here are a few things I really enjoy about this liquid soap packaging:
- I like that the “natural” aspect of the product is front-and-center. It’s obviously at the heart of this company’s brand, and it makes me feel like I’m doing something good for the world.
- I like that the company’s origins are called out. A company being around and in the market since the late 1800’s can pretty much be a safe, reliable one with reliable products.
- Free yourself.
It’s a wonderful incentive. Who doesn’t want to be free (whatever that may mean to you)?!
All that being said, onn the downside I feel like the English vs. French makes for an extremely busy presentation, but I get what they’re going for.
One of the other–probably most important–things I like about J.R. Watkins as a company is their dedication to being environmentally responsible.
“Responsible manufacturing processes are as important as its commitment to providing natural, consumable items for everyday life. By utilizing gravity-fed filling, biodegradable packing materials, as well as recycling programs and much more, Watkins is devoted to leaving the smallest environmental footprint possible.”

You can’t help but feel good about yourself when supporting a company, and its products, like this.
