Badger Seabuckthorn Hair Oil is Cruelty Free

Badger Seabuckthorn Hair Oil

For All Hair Types!

Badger Balm Hair Oil

Badger Hair Care:

Badger has these goals for their hair care line: “Enhance the beauty, luster and body of hair by using natural, nourishing products that work in harmony with the whole body.”

If someone has healthy hair, it looks shiny and bright. The science behind that is that light reflects from its smooth surface. The opposite of that is having damaged hair: an uneven, rough surface that makes the hair look dull. When an oil that is nourishing is worked into the hair, it starts to provide protection from chemicals, heat and UV damage. It starts to look healthy again.

Badger

The Seabuckthorn Hair Oil is for all hair types.

The glass bottle of Seabuckthorn Oil, is full of ruby red Seabuckthron Extract, then it’s blended with Apricot Oil, Pomegranate Oil, as well as Sunflower Oil.

Seabuckthorn Hair Oil, with Apricot and Pomegranate Oil, promotes hair strength and elasticity. It is rich in Vitamins A, B, C, E, and K.

Apricot Oil will add moisture and shine to your hair cuticle (rich in Vitamins A, C, and E).

Pomegranate Oil contains high levels of antioxidants, and helps to promote the regeneration and strengthening of your hair (rich in Vitamins B and C).

Vitamin E protects the hair from free radical damage, and brings out your hair’s natural shine and luster.

Badger Hair Oil is 100% natural. No artificial fragrance, color, synthetic ingredients, mineral oil, silicone or silicone derivatives, or harsh ingredients.

Rosehip (Rosa Canina) possesses regenerative properties, helping hair to return to its healthiest state.

I received a half size sample, however, the full size is a 2 oz. glass bottle, and is priced at $18.99. There is a citrus aroma.

Note these important facts about Badger Hair Oil:

All of Badger products comply with the Leaping Bunny Standard. That means that you, the customer, is guaranteed that the product is cruelty free…none of Badger’s products or their ingredients, are ever tested on animals.

Directions for use:

Step 1: Apply the Seabuckthorn Oil evenly to clean, dry hair. Experiment as to the amount that you will need depending on your hair type and length. Start off with one pump and add more as needed.
Step 2: Massage the Oil into your hair and scalp. Work from the roots to the tips. Use a comb or your fingers to ensure even distribution.
Step 3: Allow the Oil to soak into your hair for one hour or overnight. Badger gives the tip to use an old towel so you don’t stain your pillowcase.
Step 4: Shampoo and condition, and then style your hair.

My experience: I try to take good care of my hair, however, I am guilty of blow drying on a regular basis; sometimes I also use a straightening iron on my wavy hair! All things that can take a toll on the hair, no matter how much I try to kid myself, so I was very happy to be able to test out this natural oil.

It would depend on your hair, but I applied two-three full pumps of the Oil to my hair, and let it soak in overnight. As instructed, I did use a towel on my pillowcase in case it stained the pillowcase. Six hours later (not much sleep!) I shampooed my hair. The Oil rinses out very quickly, and I could already feel how extra soft my hair was during rinsing!

Since then, I have tested this Oil six times, and it still looks like I have plenty left. (Remember, I have a half size sample). My clothes are not stylish, but at least I have great looking hair! In fact, after using the Oil, it was always extra soft, and very, very shiny.  The smell is citrusy, with orange the predominant smell, and also rose geranium and lavender. It’s was not at all overpowering to my nose; and remember that’s sleeping with it in my hair, too!

Can’t come up with anything that I think someone wouldn’t like about the Badger Seabuckthorn Oil. There are other Badger hair oils that are available: Badger Jojoba Hair Oil (for dry scalp) and Badger Argan Hair Oil (for dry and damaged hair) that you may wish to try for your hair care needs. You can check those out at the Badger Website.

Sunscreen Questions & Answers from Badger

Badger Balm Sunscreen

After my Badger Balm’s Damascus Rose Face Sunscreen Lotion Review, two excellent questions/comments were left on my blog, and I thought that it would be helpful for me to do another post with Badger’s responses. 

Thank you to everyone who leaves a comment on my blog, and thank you to Badger for not only quickly responding, but also for the detailed information! Badger was very modest when I thanked them; they simply want to help everyone, “make better/more informed purchasing decisions overall.“ It is so appreciated, Badger! I love your products (and as you know from reading my review, I was a loyal customer before being sent Damascus Rose).

For those who have asked, or wondered…

Facts: I am writing this review because the Badger Balm Damascus Rose Face Sunscreen Lotion worked for me–not because it was sent to me for free! I’m under no obligation; and I accepted the product for review because I had already purchased, and love, another Badger Balm Sunscreen, for my family:

What is Super Spectacular About Badger Balm Damascus Rose Face Sunscreen:

non-nanoNon-Nano— Badge Balm sunscreens do not contain Nanoparticles

UVA UVB LogoBroad Spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays.  SPF 16

NSF

“The NSF is an American National Standard written specifically for personal care products containing organic ingredients. Since it is not a food standard, it recognizes and allows certain safe processes and ingredients that are critical and unique to personal care product effectiveness. This product is Certified to Contain Organic Ingredients”  Also, Badger explained this further: “One thing to note about the NSF is that it’s a great certification for things that cannot be USDA Certified Organic, like our sunscreen.  The reason we don’t put NSF on all of our products is because they are USDA certified, so we can use that seal instead.” 

NPAThis product has been Certified Natural by the Natural Products Association

Noncomedogenic–The sunscreen has been dermatologist tested & approved. It won’t clog pores.

Leaping BunnyBadger Balm complies with the Leaping Bunny Standard—ensures that none of the Badger products or ingredients are ever tested on animals.

 

I love that Badger Balm Damascus Rose has antioxidants in the sunscreen! I know they’re important, but I asked the Badger Balm staff if they would please provide an explanation for my readers since I wasn’t sure I would give an adequate explanation. 

Direct quote from Badger Balm for Moxie:

Antioxidants are important for the body to help neutralize free radicals caused by environmental pollutants and UV rays. Free radicals are highly reactive chemicals that cause damage to cells and metabolic processes when let loose in the body. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals by bonding with them, making the free radicals stable.

Antioxidants can be found in plant based oils and are also vitamins such as vitamins A, C, & E. They are beneficial when eaten, and also when applied topically.  We believe it is especially important to protect the skin from harmful free radicals, since our skin is the first defense system of our bodies. That is why all Badger products are made with ingredients, including the organic oils and butters, that are rich in antioxidants.

Our sunscreens not only provide protection from the sun, they also fight the damaging and aging processes associated with free radicals. By applying antioxidants to our skin, we help our skin fight damaging free radicals to keep us healthy and young.

Thoughts about Badger Balm Damascus Rose Sunscreen:

Damascus Rose is great because it feels very light. I wore it with and without makeup. Kept me from getting sun in both circumstances! One of the times I wore it was during a miniature golfing outing with the family.

When applied, you really have to get up close (to a mirror) to see any white-colored lotion traces; of course, no white traces would be visible when it’s under makeup.

Badger Balm

Use it on your face and your neck to not only protect you from the sun’s rays, but also to moisturize.

This is for use on all skin types, but Badger wants everyone to know that it is especially ideal for if you have dry and/or delicate skin.

Any objections? I did not have any.

Damascus Rose with Lavender & Chamomile–I liked the scent, but maybe you won’t. Personal preference.

Reminder from Badger: You must reapply this sunscreen at least every two hours, and use a water resistant sunscreen on the rest of your body if swimming or sweating.
