Badger Balm SPF 30

July 19, 2010

You could pretty much hand me an un-marked tin, and tell me that it was some form of badger balm, and I’d tell you I like it without even trying it. Badger Balm is by far one of the most coveted, used, and requested products in my house. I love all the ones I have, and that is a lot. One of my favorites is their SPF 30 for face & body. It smells delightful. I rubbed this on my little badgers, they smell yummy and stay protected in the sun. When I found out that Badger had a sunscreen I bought it sight unseen. I didn’t ask for a sample. I knew that I’d like it, and I knew that it would do everything it claimed to do, while still being safe. But don’t just take my word for it. Swing by the EWG (Environmental Working Group) and see what they have to say about this fab sunscreen!

This is what I like about it. Its smooth, creamy, blends incredibly well, not sticky, and is effective. I bought this and 2 of the SPF lip balm 15’s for my little ones. The Lip Balms are nice as well. Big Surprise right? Badger makes fantastic balms, and rockin’ lip balms, so I sure wasn’t surprised!

Stays on the skin when you sweat or play in the water (water-resistant)
• Won’t run and drip into your eyes when you sweat
• Starts working as soon as you put it on. No waiting
• Allows your skin to breathe
• Is strong and effective enough to protect you from extreme conditions
• Has no irritating ingredients

This sunscreen as well as the other Badger sunscreens are one of the top sunscreens. They currently make 3 out of the top 10 sunscreens, on EWG’s list of over 1600. Thats huge. Safe Mama also recommends it as well.
Now I am not a doctor, or scientist, I’m just a mama. Who knows that sunscreen for her babies is important. I also understand the whole nano particles and “safe sunscreen” jazz. But I am not that great at putting it into words, and explaining it myself. And no one could have said it better then Badger themselves. To get the whole low down on safe sunscreens and why some aren’t effective click here, or the image below.

This is the sunscreen and the lip balm. The sunscreen is super creamy, thick, but blends well. The lip balm goes on effortlessly, smoothly and stays put.

Inactive Sunscreen Ingredients: *Olea Europaea (Extra Virgin Olive) Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax), *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Butter, *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Essential Oil of *Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender), and CO2 Extracts of *Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary), and *Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn Berry).

I love these products, and I love this brand. I love that they stay commited to so many things that are earth friendly, and that are important to their consumers. I have never met a Badger Product I didn’t like, and I would recommend any of them, to anyone. Even one I may not have tried yet.

You can find this and other great Badger products at Badger Balm.

Hugs & Lip Gloss,
Beauty Mama
