UVA UVB Sunscreen

Sunscreens with this claim have passed biodegradability testing, meaning that they break down in the natural environment.
% Certified Organic Sunscreen
Badger sunscreens contain between 84% and 99% certified organic ingredients (calculation excludes the zinc oxide) and are certified to the NSF/ANSI 305 Standard – We can't use the USDA Organic certification on our sunscreens because it is a food standard that doesn't allow minerals.
Badger sunscreen creams and lotions bearing this logo are certified Non-GMO by NSF to the NSF Non-GMO True North standard, one of the most respected independent certification organizations in existence today.
Badger sunscreens are made from all-natural ingredients that should not irritate or clog pores. Those products bearing the "Non-Comedogenic" claim have been clinically tested to ensure that they do not block pores. All of our sunscreens are suitable for sensitive skin.
“Hypo (lower) allergenic” means a lower chance of causing skin irritation or an allergic reaction. This claim has been substantiated using Repeat Insult Patch Testing (RIPT) on human volunteers. Our test results show that all of our sunscreen products can be considered “Non Primary Irritants and Non Primary Sensitizers”.
Pediatrician Tested Sunscreen
The pediatrician claim requires the same testing that is conducted to make the hypoallergenic claim (see description above). These results are then reviewed and approved by a consulting pediatrician who determines whether or not the product is deemed safe for use on babies and kids.
Broad Spectrum Sunscreen
In the U.S., all "broad spectrum" claims must be substantiated using the Critical Wavelength method, which measures the breadth of UVA protection. A sunscreen is considered 'broad spectrum' if the critical wavelength result is greater than 370nm. Our sunscreens range from: 374-385nm.
