What Makes Badger Unique?
Badger is a small, family-owned & family-friendly company nestled on the banks of the Ashuelot River in rural Gilsum, New Hampshire. We blend organic plant extracts, exotic oils and butters and beeswax, and make healing balms, lip balms, safe mineral sunscreens and other personal care products that work and feel remarkably good. Badger products are uniquely formulated blends of the finest organic ingredients available anywhere in the world. Our Philosophy of Formulation is simple: make products for people we love, and then share them with the world. We combine years of tradition, research, and lots of love to create products that work as well as you expect them to.
All Badger products, with the exception of our soaps, lip balms, and sunscreens, are made here in our 23,000 sq. ft. environmentally-friendly facility in Gilsum, New Hampshire. Due to space and equipment constraints, our soaps and lip balms are made in Iowa at a larger-scale natural products manufacturing facility, and our sunscreens are manufactured at an FDA compliant facility in Canada.
We hold every single ingredient to the "Badger Natural Standard", a rigorous look at the growth, sustainability, and supply chain of each ingredient we use. That means that when you use Badger products, you can be sure that you are using the purest, most natural products available. And because the USDA Organic Certification is a food-grade standard, our ingredients are even pure enough to eat! Badger's USDA Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes from a single estate in Southern Spain, and that very same Olive Oil is used by Michelin Star-winning chefs in France and Spain! In fact, all of the Badgers eat the very same Olive Oil in Badger's organic lunches, and many of us purchase it to use in our home kitchens. And of course, we use only the finest, purest essential oils from the far corners of the globe. One example is the Organic Rose Oil (Rosa Damascena) that comes from Bulgaria - the blossoms are hand picked before dawn and steam-distilled the very same day. It takes about 5 tons of fresh rose blossoms to make one liter of oil, and Badger pays over $4,000 per liter for that precious stuff!
That's the Badger difference, and what makes Badger unique.
Our products harness the powers of aromatherapy, vitamin rich oils, essential oils, and minerals to soothe, smooth, and protect your skin and your mind. This means that Badger is a total body/mind/spirit experience. If you look at the ingredient declaration on any of our products, we're certain you'll be impressed! We hope you enjoy our products as much as we do, and please contact us if you have any questions, comments, concerns, or a funny story to share.
