Frequently Asked Question
Why Aren't Badger Soaps Certified Organic?
That's a great question! Though Badger soaps are made up of a large percentage of certified organic ingredients, they cannot bear the USDA seal because soap making requires a chemical process (saponification) which turns fat - in this case, plant oils - in to soap. This process involves Sodium Hydroxide (AKA Lye), which the USDA considers a "non-agricultural" ingredient - in other words, Organic Lye does not exist! No Lye remains in the soap after the plant oils are saponified. And remember, all of the ingredients are still grown, harvested, and processed in accordance with the USDA standard - so they are still the purest, healthiest ingredients in the world.

The History of Badger
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!
To create fabulously pure and effective products of the highest natural quality, based on simplicity and thoughtful preparation, with the intention to soothe and heal. 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 Badger's work and through the way they treat each other and the people we serve.

Three things you should know about Badger products: • They are 100% Natural. 98% “Natural” isn’t good enough for us. They never use chemicals, synthetics, GMO’s, parabins, toxic preservatives or any of the other bad stuff that you’ve read so much about. (They like animals, so, obviously, no animal testing either.) • They use from 70%-100% certified organic ingredients in almost every product. They’re talking exceptional natural quality. • Their ingredients are always naturally processed. This is very important, as chemical processing can rob the life from a natural botanical that was originally designed by nature to be whole and good.
