Company Philosophy
Espree's philosophy is to combine the wisdom of nature with innovative technology to deliver premium, wholesome solutions for grooming and pet care. The cornerstone upon which Espree Animal Products, Inc. was built is our dedication to pets and our family of pet friendly customers to solve your pet's problems with effective, natural, wholesome solutions. Since 1989, it has been our uncompromised belief that simple, natural ingredients are gentler and safer for pets and owners alike.

Signature Ingredients
Espree defines natural as "derived from plant, vegetable or mineral origin, primarily through physical processing, sometimes facilitated by simple chemical reactions." Formulated from human-grade ingredients, almost every Espree product contains more than 95% natural ingredients and more than 50% certified organic ingredients, enhanced with natural herbal and fruit extracts. All are biodegradable, sustainable and safe for the environment. All Espree Animal Products meet established human safety standards, are not likely to cause skin irritation or allergies, are pesticide free, and are not tested on animals.

Organic Aloe Vera - Gel from the inner filet of the aloe plant is the main ingredient in Espree products. Aloe Vera is a powerful skin and coat hydrator and is absorbed into the skin 4 times faster than water. Aloe Vera helps heal allergic rashes, sunburn, insect bites and minor abrasions while alleviating swelling and boosting immune response.

Plant Based & Coconut-Based Cleansers - derived from Coconut or Plants based sources.

Tea Tree Oil - also known as melaleuca, is well-known for it's healing properties. Espree blends Tea Tree Oil in some of its most popular products to help with itchy skin, flea bite dermatitis and to soothe seasonal itching.

Hydrolyzed Oat Protein - a soluble Oat Protein which makes the active properties of Oat more available in the product for skin and coat hydration. It is lightweight and does not weigh down coat.

Witch Hazel - helps soothe razor burn, contact rashes and bug bites with it's anti-inflammatory properties as well as clean pores and soothe dry flaky skin. Witch Hazel's anti-microbial action soothes skin conditions caused by bacterial irritation.

Argan Oil - proven to make coat softer, silkier and shinier. Originally from the Argan tree in Morocco. Argan Oil is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants that help heal and repair skin and coat.

Keratin - called the "touch protein", because it is the major component of coat, skin, and nails. It is a natural protein that penetrates and seals each shaft of hair. Natural Keratin fibers provide each strand of hair in the coat with an outer protective shield which smooths the cuticle and increases strength and elasticity. Keratin is a surface protective agent with film-forming, moisturizing action.

Coconut Oil - deeply penetrates skin and coat for optimal health and luminous shine. It helps to nourish and strengthen underlying tissues and promotes release of dry, dead cells on the skin's surface.

Avocado Oil - is the oil from the seed and the pulp of an avocado. It is excellent for use in creams, lotions, and hair preparations because of its nourishing and conditioning effect on dry skin and hair. Avocado Oil is high in antioxidants, vitamins and fatty acids that can regenerate skin cells and unclog pores where allergens hide. For this reason, it is very helpful with seasonal allergies. Avocado Oil has been found to significantly increase the water-soluble collagen content in the dermis skin layer.

History
In 1989 Teri Jones launched Espree Animal Products as a way to combine her passion for animals with her family's experience in manufacturing natural, aloe vera based products. Using natural and certified organic products is at the center of Teri's core beliefs, and she is passionate in her belief that animals should reap the benefits, too.

The company began with only five products, primarily formulated for pet professionals. In order to meet growing demand for its green products, Espree has expanded its line to provide more than 75 products for dogs, cats and horses. Over the past 10 years, Espree's popularity has grown with pet owners seeking natural and organic products that solve their pet's issues safely and effectively.
