Good for the skin, bad for the bug ~ and it really works! Badger's Anti-Bug Balm uses organic citronella, cedar and lemongrass ~ essential oils that have been used for centuries to naturally repel insects. The base of extra virgin olive and castor oils makes this unique balm both soothing and moisturizing to the skin.

Even better, the smell doesn’t repel people. In fact, when Badgers wear Anti-Bug Balm to summertime events, not only do they not offend, people often ask them what the delightful scent is!

Unlike most other brands on the market, Badger's tried and true formulation contains no DEET, petroleum products, or synthetic chemicals. Also, it's been independently lab tested for efficacy against mosquitoes, with results of 3-4 hours of maximum protection. This means it's safe and effective for the whole family.

Directions for Use

Apply to entire area of skin to be protected, and remember to reapply frequently for best protection against biting insects. For sensitive skin, apply a small amount of the product to test before full use. This natural mosquito repellent contains a high concentration of natural essential oils, so contact with eyes and broken and/or unhealthy skin should be avoided. While this product is safe to use on children, please keep out of their reach and supervise application.

Where's the USDA Organic Logo?

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates all bug repellents and they only allow products to reference a single federal agency on their labels as they are concerned that consumers will not know who to go to if they have a problem with the product. Badger's Anti-Bug Balm is still certified organic, but they just can't reference the USDA on the labels.
