In 1978, Mary Grossman, a single mother raising her daughter, moved to Huntington Beach, Ca where she saw an opportunity to purchase a small pet store with one part time groomer. Working seven days a week from 7am to 7pm her business grew into a very successful pet grooming and retail operation. With a staff totaling eight, the business groomed up to 120 dogs and cats on busy days. With a commitment to the highest quality service, Mary was continually searching for the best products she could find. Little did she know that her search would come to an end after meeting Joseph Meeks, a chemist and her future husband
Mary soon learned why so many of the so-called ‘best’ products at that time were still harsh on her groomers and soon Joe started to create natural shampoos and conditioners for her. In 1986, a new manufacturing business was born and to this day Nature’s Specialties uses the best natural ingredients for all of their shampoos and conditioners all of which are nontoxic and biodegradable.
