[formerly Dakota Free] Gluten-free, allergen specific and hypoallergenic skin care, bath, baby, spa and hair care products. “We have been helping families stay healthy and serving those with celiac disease, allergies, autism, cancer, chemical sensitivities, asthma, eczema and other skin issues since 2000. Every item has been handcrafted in a dedicated gluten-free facility with careful attention to identifying and tracking the allergen status of each product.” This looks to be one of the most ingredient conscious companies I’ve seen. They have a long list of undesirable ingredients that they track and have much information on their website about the ways ingredients you don’t want can get into products. There is an attribute checklist on each product page to help you choose the right item for your specific need.
“Therapeutic skin care for mamas and babies” made from 100% pure USDA certified organic ingredients. “The goal – healing skincare treatments that are honestly labeled and USDA certified organic, just right for pregnant mamas and babies. We started from scratch, with 100% natural ingredients known for their therapeutic and restorative properties…Our intention was to satisfy a need in the market for truly natural, effective products that would resolve issues all too common for mamas-to-be and babies.
USDA certified organic body care products, certified to food grade standards. Badger has been around since 1995. You may know their first product “Badger Balm,” which was created by a carptenter to heal his cracked hands. You’ve seen this brand on the shelves of many stores. But did you know that it’s a small, family-owned, family-run company in New Hampshire? “We 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. We work hard, have fun, and incorporate honesty, respect, and integrity into everything we do…We only use ingredients that fit our rigorous natural standards for healthy agriculture, minimal processing, sustainable supply chain, and health giving properties. For example, the organic extra virgin olive oil we use in most of our products comes from a single family estate in southern Spain and it is the best olive oil we’ve ever tasted. And, the organic rose essential oil we use in all of our 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. We 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.” Links to Ingredients and Growers and Philosophy of Formulation. “We believe that true organic agriculture goes beyond the elimination of synthetic chemicals to a harmonization and sustainability of farmers, producers, consumers, and the land that we all share. Our goal at Badger is to take the organic certification as a first step on a road toward cultivating a higher standard for ingredients from the farm to the factory. We are working towards sourcing ingredients that are grown biodynamically, traded fairly, processed with thoughtful intention and to create products for all those in need of organic healing body care that works.”
