Badger is a company that produces USDA Certified Organic and Cruelty-free skincare products. That alone makes me adore this brand!
Their Healing Balm is made from Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Beeswax, Castor Oil, Aloe Vera and Essential Oils of Birch and Wintergreen. It's great for folks who have patches of dry, rough and cracked skin.
In my case, my hands are so dry that sometimes they get a bit flaky. Badger's balm is one of the products I've been using the last couple of years to help soothe and improve my skin's condition. It goes on slightly greasy but that goes away quickly because the product gets absorbed into the skin within a few minutes. I love how my skin feels smoother and softer after I apply this. It can be a bit difficult to spread because it's in balm (and not cream or lotion) form. But you don't need a lot for this to work.
I prefer buying the small tin of the Healing Balm so that I can bring it with me anywhere. I like the fact that the pot doesn't pop open easily so none of the product goes on to my stuff.
Of all the Badger products I've tried, I like the scent of this balm the least. It has a very faint ointment-like smell. The good news is, Badger has an unscented version of this balm. The bad news, it's not available where I live. Until I find an unscented version at the store or manage to find an online shop that will ship here, I'll continue using the original one.
It's time for me to buy another tin because the one I've been using is about to hit the expiration date. Good stuff - definitely worth a try for those who have not had a bit of Badger goodness.
