The Importance of Using Ingredients Sourced from the United States in Natural Pet and Equine Products



In the ever-expanding world of pet and horse care, conscientious owners are becoming increasingly discerning about the products they use on their companions. They are realizing that the highest quality (and safest) products they can use, are manufactured in the United States... with ingredients strictly being sourced domestically.




One crucial aspect gaining attention is the sourcing of ingredients in pet and equine products.


Many pet and horse owners are now opting for private label products made exclusively with ingredients sourced from the United States. Being a pet product manufacturer in the U.S., we may be a little biased... but we believe it's crucial to choose products with domestically sourced ingredients for the health and well-being of our beloved companions.


Stringent Quality Standards:


Probably the most important reason to source ingredients from the U.S. is based on higher quality standards... which leads to the best products being produced. The United States has some of the highest quality standards for pet food and grooming products in the world.


When you use U.S.-sourced ingredients, you can trust they have undergone rigorous testing and adhere to strict regulations. From detecting contamination, to ensuring that what is on the label... is exactly what is in the product, comes back to higher testing standards.


We private label natural pet products for many different types of companies in the pet industry. It wouldn't help our customers to have a great formula... with sub-grade ingredients in them. To make the best-performing and safest products possible... you have offer the best of the following:


  1. Best Ingredients Strictly Sourced from the U.S.

  2. Naturally-Derived Products

  3. Innovative and Proven Formulas

  4. Excellent Packaging


By offering the best of all of these, our customers can go to market with the best products possible. But it also ensures that the products meet the highest safety and quality standards, providing peace of mind to pet owners.



Reduced Carbon Footprint:


Choosing products with U.S.-sourced ingredients can help reduce the carbon footprint. Domestically sourced ingredients mean shorter transportation distances, leading to lower emissions. Environmentally conscious pet owners can feel good about minimizing their impact on the planet while pampering their pets with high quality products.


Allergen Control and Pet Health:


Using ingredients sourced from the U.S. enables better control over potential allergens. Some pets may have sensitivities or allergies to specific ingredients, and using products with U.S.-sourced ingredients allows for better identification and management of these issues. Some overseas manufacturers use cheap "fillers" in their products. Since they aren't active ingredients, they can tend to be "hidden". But, this can cause health risks to your pets.

People reach out to us mostly because we develop natural products. That's important to them, because they want to sell the safest products they can, to their customers that own pets and horses. They know that natural products tend to be safer than synthetic chemicals.


However, it's not always about just being natural. Essential oils are natural and make great fragrances, but they do have some drawbacks. Many pets and humans can be allergic to them. So, using aromatic chemicals that are derived from natural sources, may actually be the better choice for some products (as long as they are high quality and proven ingredients)!

You can save a lot of money sourcing products developed overseas. But, what "extra" ingredients can end up in your product? Are all ingredients truly listed? Even if so, did you actually receive all of those ingredients? Were corners cut? Those are the questions that haunt sellers of pet and equine products... that have sourced their products and ingredients from overseas sources.


Product and Customer Support


There just isn't the same dedication given to produce products with quality ingredients and testing when you're oceans-apart in location.


If you had a product from overseas that had harmful additional ingredients in it, or even just low-quality ingredients, who would you even approach to make it right?


I've talked with many folks that source from overseas. When they had an issue, it turned out that someone halfway across the world... just wasn't too concerned about their issues. Afterall, they know there's not much you can do about it, way over here in the U.S. Legally, you're basically on your own. Unfortunately, since overseas manufacturers realize this and it propels them to cut corners to make higher profits. Many times, the price you pay in the end is far higher than the cost savings upfront.


We can help you add the best natural pet and horse products into your current brand.


In the pursuit of providing the best care for our companions, the origin of ingredients cannot be overlooked. Choosing white label pet and equine products with ingredients sourced exclusively from the United States ensures the highest quality products are being made.


Our company has continued to source ingredients strictly from the U.S. for over two decades now. We understand it's importance and we don't plan to ever change our approach to this!


In addition, we also develop unique packaging for our customers. The custom labels and pouches we make are not only beautiful, but they can also be recycled!
