Badger Balm Sunscreen Review & Giveaway
I dropped the ball. Earlier this summer, it was a cloudy day (I mean a REALLY overcast misty island day) and I let my boys go outside to play without sunscreen. It was the first time they got burnt to a crisp and they were not happy about it. I felt terrible, but I did my best to ease their sore skin and I promised I wouldn’t let it happen again. When I was offered the opportunity to try sunscreen from Badger, of course I said yes! With three kids and a summer home at the beach, we go through sunscreen like nobodys business. I’ve always been concerned with the laundry list of chemical ingredients in most of the sunscreens we’ve used over the years - who wants that stuff absorbing into your skin and ultimately your bloodstream? But, it’s a necessary evil right? Not so much.
Badger is a small, family-owned & family-friendly company nestled on the banks of the Ashuelot River in rural Gilsum, New Hampshire. Badger products are uniquely formulated blends of the finest organic ingredients available anywhere in the world. Badger is committed to being chemical-free, 100% natural and USDA Certified Organic, and almost all of their products bear the official USDA Organic seal.
