June 2013 - Equine Journal Review
A triple threat of unusual proportions, this shampoo is made in the USA, is all natural, and smells delectable! Enriched with protieins, it made our tester's horse's hair, mane, and tail not only clean but also silky smooth. Plus, it did wonders for our tester's own hair, too!

June 2007 - Introducing Espana "SILK" All Natural, European-Inspired Grooming Products.
Minneapolis, MN . . . After years in development, Minnesota-based Espana "SILK"Grooming products has introduced a new line of six all natural "SILK" grooming products which offer easier grooming, and improved cosmetic and health benefits for animals and people of all ages. Formulated with a pleasant and refreshing light cucumber-spa fragrance, the European-inspired Espana "SILK" line incorporates the grooming world's highest concentration of silk amino acids to provide superior conditioning and moisturizing while also offering protective and healing properties.
Silk amino acids (also called silk proteins or sericin) are obtained by the hydrolysis of silk - a natural protein fiber. The soft, refined lustrous thread obtained from the silk cocoon of the Asian silkworm is a key ingredient in Espana products. Silk amino acids make hair, coats, manes and tails feel soft and velvety while also providing anti-oxidant action to prevent hair, coat and skin dehydration.
The Espana "SILK" product line is all natural, ph balanced, biodegradable, hypoallergenic and does not contain soap/detergents, petroleum or alcohol-based chemicals. Products include the highest quality and safest ingredients available for the grooming market and are especially formulated to hydrate and reduce static while enhancing the natural luster of hair, coats, manes and tails.
There are no fumes or harsh chemicals to affect the human or animal. Espana, for the first time in this country, includes usage instructions in both the English and Spanish languages. All products are available in eighth liter, half liter, liter, four liter and 10 liter bottles.
