Badger is a family run, family friendly business located on the banks of the Ashuelot River in rural Gilsum, New Hampshire, USA. Bill, Katie and daughters Mia, Emily and Rebecca started the business back in 1995, in the kitchen of their home.
Bill Whyte was a carpenter by trade and an herbalist by avocation. He could never find a product to heal his rough, dry, cracked hands—the result of daily hard work in the tough New Hampshire winters. Bill whipped up a batch of the original Healing Balm in his kitchen using Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Beeswax, Castor Oil, Aloe Vera and Essential Oil of Sweet Birch—a traditional New England herbal remedy.
The result was astounding: a simple, all-natural, soothing and healing balm that really worked! And a company was born.
A team of about 40 friendly badgers formulates, manufactures, and ships almost all of the products from our facility, known as The Badger Mines. Badger works hard to create a healthy business with ethical and charitable principles. Call and ask any employee. You’ll hear about our free organic lunches, green initiatives in every department and our charitable giving practices—not to mention our lunchtime full-contact badminton games!
Our traditionally processed Shea Butter, from the seed of the wild-grown Karite Tree of Western Africa, is ivory to pale yellow in color, with a pleasant "nutty" aroma and taste. We use it in many of our products, most notably Nutmeg & Shea Every Day Moisturizer, Cuticle Care, Bali Balm and in our totally natural & chemical-free sunscreens. Shea Butter is thought to be a "youth enhancer" and has been treasured for centuries as a superior skin soother, moisturizer and beautifier. The production of Shea Butter has become an important and sustainable village industry in Africa, providing a source of income where it is much needed.
