Badger: A Small Company With A Massive Heart
Badger is a small, family-owned, family-run, and family-friendly company nestled in the woods of Gilsum, New Hampshire. They blend the finest organic plant extracts, exotic oils, beeswax, and minerals to make the safest, most effective products possible to soothe, heal, protect and otherwise treat your body. They work hard, have fun, and incorporate honesty, respect, and integrity into everything that they do.
The company was started by Bill Whyte in 1995 when, as a carpenter working in the cold New Hampshire winters, he created an amazing balm that helped his cracked hands. The company has since grown to over 100 products and 60 employees but Badger Bill still runs the show as CEO, along with his wife Katie (COO), and their two daughters Emily (VP Sales & Marketing), and Rebecca (VP of Innovation and Sustainability).
They only use ingredients that fit their rigorous natural standards for healthy agriculture, minimal processing, sustainable supply chain, and health giving properties. For example, the organic extra virgin olive oil they use in most of their products comes from a single family estate in southern Spain and it is the best olive oil they’ve ever tasted. And, the organic rose essential oil they use in all of their rose products is steam distilled in Bulgaria from rose petals picked the very same day. It takes 5 tons of rose petals to make one liter of this precious essential oil.
Badger: An Amazing Culture
They combine years of tradition and research with beautiful artwork and lots of love to create products naturally rich in powerful antioxidants and vitamins for healthier people and a healthier planet. A team of friendly ‘Badgers’ formulates, manufactures, and ships their products around the country and the world. They work hard to maintain a healthy community-minded business with ethical and charitable social principles. Call and ask any Badger. You’ll hear about the daily organic lunches served free to all employees, the generous benefits package, and their charitable giving practices. These are just a few of the things that make Badger unique.
