PureMark Naturals 17-item line offers natural, vegetarian and vegan friendly choices, in addition to non-GMO, gluten, wheat, dairy, soy and preservative free options.  The products also include a natural superfood and plant-based vegan protein enhanced with fruits and vegetables and enriched with nourishing extracts.  

The new premium line will soon be available at select retailers nationwide.

According to Wilhardt, PureMark Naturals was created based on top-trending products, while addressing the demands of today’s health conscious consumer. The packaging features a clean green design with a transparent label, allowing consumers to see exactly what they are purchasing.
