Why we chose to carry Badger Balm
Badger is a small, family-owned, family-run, and family-friendly company that 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 Bill still runs the show as CEO, along with his wife Katie and their two daughters Emily and Rebecca.
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 only use ingredients that fit their rigorous natural standards for healthy agriculture, minimal processing, sustainable supply chain, and health giving properties.
They work hard, have fun, and incorporate honesty, respect, and integrity into everything they do. Their mission is to run a business that is fun, fair and profitable; where money is fuel, not a goal; and where their vision for a healthier world finds expression through the way they work and through the way they treat each other and the people they serve.
Badger is a family-friendly company that offer a Family-focused Employee Programs that offer Flexibility, Paid leave for Primary & Secondary Care Parent, Extended Parental Leave and Child Care Reimbursements. They also have a Babies at Work program and a Child Care Center.
