Back in 1995 Bill and Katie started making Badger Balm in the kitchen of their home with the support and help of their daughters Mia, Emily, and Rebecca. Now Bill is the CEO and Head Badger, Katie is the COO, Emily is the VP of Sales & Marketing, Rebecca is the VP of Innovation & Social Impact, and Mia is a Human Resources consultant. Emily has a little girl, Maya, who came to work as part of Badger’s Babies at Work program. We’ve not yet figured out what her future role in the company will be, but for now she continues to inspire us every day to make the safest and healthiest products we can.

A team of over 60 friendly “Badgers” formulate, manufacture, and ship all of our products from our facility in Gilsum, New Hampshire. We work hard to maintain a healthy community-minded business with ethical and charitable social principles. Call and ask any employee. You’ll hear about our free organic lunches every day, generous benefits package, green initiatives in every department, and our charitable giving practices.

    I love your products and I’m so thankful I found them! I have dry skin and struggle with fragrance and dyes. I’ve been using your products for a few years now and your fragrance free line and your baby oil are my go to products. I really appreciate that you are able to offer most of your products in glass and tins too!

    Thank you so much for being a brand I trust! There are not many of those out there these days.

  • Hi,
    I purchased your cuticle care balm in Moscow a couple of weeks ago and loved it so much that decided to try other balms too and placed my order today.
    I found out that you used to produce also lip balms in tins. Your tins are soo cute, I am a big fan! I wanted to ask if you are going to start producing them again some day? I want one very much!

    Thank you!

    • Thank you, Armine! We are indeed considering making some of our lip balms available in tins again. In the meantime, many people do enjoy our original Badger Balm and our Unscented Badger Balm as both lip and body moisturizers. We’re so glad that you are enjoying what we’ve made!
      Kindly, Emily

  • I used Badger sunscreen on my daughter for the first time today. Is it supposed to have a weird scent? It is not expired and I just purchased it from whole foods. Also another concern is that it turned my brand new sterling silver ring black! I did not expect that! I’m just wondering what it’s doing to the skin if it turned the silver black.

    I do like the ease of application.

    • Hi Emily – thanks for letting us know! This is the first I’m hearing of this issue. In the meantime, can you send an email to custserv@badgerbalm.com and tell us which sunscreen you are using? If you can provide a lot number and expiration date (located on the crimp of the tube) that would be most helpful.

      I’ve forwarded your question to our product development team, and I’m connecting you with our customer service department now.


  • Hi,

    I live in Canada, and would desperately love to try your sleep balm and nighty night balm. I have heard amazing things about it.

    Though, I dont seem to be able to order it. Please let me know if there is a way for me to do so.

  • Hi,
    my name is Gianni.
    I was wondering if you could send me some information
    material, brochure or other documentation about
    your products by snail-mail.
    Thanks in advance.
    Best regards.
