Browse at the long list of ingredients in most conventional beauty and cosmetic products and you’re sure to be bewildered by the unpronounceable names, controversial substances and very often, skin/allergy warnings. These frenetic times are characterized by an overload on our bodies, our minds and our environment.
Those of us seeking to simplify in every way will exhale in relief and squeal in delight at the arrival of Badger Balm products, powerfully pure body care.
Badger products are a magical range of 100% natural balms and remedies made from mostly organic ingredients and pure essential oils sourced from around the world for their healing powers. With Badger you can expect results. These simple blends safely and gently restore balance by helping your body heal itself.
Reading the labels is a refreshing experience – no chemicals, synthetics or strange sounding additives, GMOs, fillers, parabens or toxic preservatives.
Badger Balms contain over 95% Organic ingredients including Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic CO2 extracts, Wild African Shea Butter and fine therapeutic essential oils of the highest quality. All ingredients are organic, wild–crafted or ecologically processed, which is important as chemical processing can rob the vitality from natural ingredients.
Badger Balms smell enchanting, are easily absorbed, and come in incredibly cute packaging!
The origins of Badger products go back to the early 90’s when Bill Whyte, a carpenter with severely chapped and raw hands and cracked fingers, used his training as a herbalist and his appreciation for the powers of the natural world to mix up a batch of what was later to be called Badger Healing Balm. His fingers were healed and a new business was born! Bill is still the proud Head Badger, and the products are now to be found in over 30 countries around the world.
