Introducing: After-Bug Balm
You’re so sweet, everybody loves you… including those pesky mosquitoes! Sometimes, no matter how well we protect ourselves, itchy bug bites happen. Short of making a suit out of mosquito netting, what can you do?
Introducing Badger’s latest creation: After-Bug Balm™!
Fresh from the secret Badger lab, After-Bug Balm has everything to make the itchies a thing of the past. The active ingredient is colloidal oatmeal – a time-tested remedy for soothing itchy, irritated skin.
If you’ve ever had an oatmeal bath for chicken pox or a rash, you’re probably familiar with the concept. Our colloidal oatmeal is finely ground organic oats suspended in liquid. This makes it easy to apply - so you can think of this as an oatmeal bath without the mess! Combined with Badger’s organic base of sunflower oil, coconut oil, and beeswax, After-Bug Balm creates a soothing barrier over irritated skin. This temporarily protects skin while helping to relieve the minor irritation and itching associated with insect bites. Plus, the menthol and peppermint create a cooling sensation on contact. You’ll find yourself saying “Ahhh” as soon as you apply it!
This nifty stick is highly portable, so you can keep one in your purse, backpack, picnic basket, as well as the bathroom cabinet. And little ones can apply this balm too – with mom and dad’s supervision, of course.
And speaking of portable…
Our famous Anti-Bug Balm is now available in a travel stick. This smaller version of our twist-up stick is perfect for hard to reach places that mosquitoes love. Like behind the ears, ankles, and wrists. And it’s safe for the whole family, including dogs and horses!
Badger’s Anti-Bug Balm is DEET-free and effective, so you can keep this stick handy for on-the-go protection from mosquitoes. Plus, it smells great! Badger’s blend of essential oils works to repel insects, not people. In fact, you might even get some compliments!
So be prepared for whatever summer brings. Bring the Badger!

Can it be applied to a 6 month old baby?
Thank you for asking! This product is not recommended for use on infants younger than 6 months. However, because this is a spot-treatment product and topical use is limited when used as directed, use on children 6 months and older is safe, as long as there are no known skin sensitivities. Concerns with using menthol, peppermint and eucalyptus on younger children primarily center around respiratory distress when applied in high doses around the mouth and nose. The total concentration of these three ingredients in the After-Bug Balm is less than 1.75%, and should not be a cause for concern if this product is used as directed.
