Lucy Pet Products
Lucy Pet Products, Inc. is a family owned and operated company based in Thousand Oaks, California. President and founder, Joey Herrick also founded The Lucy Pet Foundation, whose mission is to reduce pet overpopulation and the euthanasia of over 80,000 cats and dogs per week in the United States.
“Lucy” is the name of a female Chihuahua mix who been out on her own for a long time. She was found completely covered with dirt, toenails curling under, tire marks on her back and malnourished. A few weeks after she was adopted, she gave birth to a litter. Lucy and her pups became the inspiration for The Lucy Pet Foundation. Today Lucy lives with our founder Joey Herrick and his family. Her story also helped inspire our first product line of shampoos. Lucy is featured on the label of our “Berry Berry Smellicious” Shampoo and Leave-In Conditioning Spray.

They use natural ingredients to formulate our grooming products, along with a blend of safe and effective synthetic preservatives to prevent rancidity, bacteria and fungi for the duration of the shelf life. However, these synthetic preservatives only represent a very small percentage of the total formulation.
No, since they use safe and effective preservatives their formulas cannot be considered 100% natural. However, these only represent a very small percentage of the total formulation.
At Lucy Pet Products, they want to always be honest and transparent with their consumers. They use safe and effective preservatives in their formulas to ensure they remain shelf stable. If grooming products do not use safe and effective preservatives, they would become rancid, break down, and could develop microbial bacteria or other nasty things in a very short time. Some brands claim to use “natural preservatives” but after a closer look into those formulas, they have found that some brands are not being fully honest with their consumers. They have not found a single “natural preservative” that enables the product to be shelf stable after 3 months.
The safe and effective preservatives used in our formulas have antibacterial and antifungal effects, which prevent against bacteria, yeast, and fungi from forming.
They prefer to be fully honest and provide safe grooming products that will be healthy, safe and effective whenever you purchase them. While they do use a mild preservative, these only represent a very small percentage of the total formulation and are commonly used in most human skin and hair care personal products.
Both the shampoo and conditioning lines are proudly manufactured in California, in a state-of-the-art modern facility that is solar powered and environmentally friendly.
