We 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 we use safe and effective preservatives our formulas cannot be considered 100% natural. However, these only represent a very small percentage of the total formulation.
I’ve seen other grooming products claim they are “all natural” Why aren’t yours making that claim as well?
At Lucy Pet Products, we want to always be honest and transparent with our consumers. We use safe and effective preservatives in our 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, we have found that some brands are not being fully honest with their consumers. We 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.
We prefer to be fully honest and provide safe grooming products that will be healthy, safe and effective whenever you purchase them. While we 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.

Batch lot codes are an integral part of our Quality Assurance Program as well as a way of providing tracking information on our products.
Every product is assigned a batch code at production and is based upon the date a batch record is issued on that date. The batch code is represented by a six (6) characters (combination alphabetic and numeric) as follows:
1st & 2nd characters: Numeric representing the year that the bulk is projected to be manufactured (00)
3rd character: Alphabetic representing the month that the bulk is projected to be manufactured (A-L)
4th & 5th characters: Numeric representing the date (of the month) that the bulk is projected to be manufactured (00-31)
6th character: Alphabetic representing the sequence of number of batch records issued for that specific date of projected batches to be manufactured (A, B, C, etc.)
Example: Batch code 17A22A assigned to the first batch record projected to be manufactured on January 22, 2017.
