Woman-owned Business

Badger founder Bill Whyte worked as a carpenter, and his hands would suffer in the frigid New England winters. One night, he mixed some beeswax and olive oil to create a simple herbal balm. It helped his hands so much he decided to share it with everyone he knew. Bill and his wife Katie started hand-filling tins of the original Badger Balm in their kitchen. Twenty-five years later, Badger makes nearly 100 products, has over 80 employees, and sells in 15 countries. Still family-owned and operated, the company is now led by second-generation family owners and collaborative executive officers Emily and Rebecca.
