Plainfield, MA – Kathy’s Family is proud to announce the latest addition to its family. Read Our Ingredients is a unique new line of organic bodycare. The new collection features a list of the ingredients on the front of the packaging to make it easier for consumers to know what they are purchasing for and feeding their skin. The pure and simple ingredients are inspired by a Minnesota prairie family's good wholesome country lifestyle and family values.
The labels of the new Read Our Ingredients line read like a favorite recipe, not a chemistry textbook. Each Kathy's Family product is an effective, highly concentrated blend of carefully selected, mild and nourishing botanicals including pure essential oils and extracts, clays, herbs, flowers, grains, honey and organic ingredients whenever possible.
When asked why they chose to feature the ingredients on the front of the label Kathy Swanson, founder of Kathy's Family, says "It's about time consumers get the information upfront that they need to make their buying decisions easier." "Our unique approach emphasizes the high quality, originality and integrity customers have come to expect from Kathy's Family," adds Swanson.
Read Our Ingredients, the new sub-brand, is a collection of natural and organic personal care products that includes a Bath Soak, Hand & Body Lotion, Bodywash and Massage & Body Oil.
