Badger Sunscreen - A Natural Physical Barrier
The Environmental Working Group's Safe Cosmetics Database reveals that Badger Sunscreen is one of the world's most effective and safest sunscreens
. Recently, Badger was rated #1
out of 910 easily available products. We think that's great, and that's why we use Badger Sunscreen.
What is the difference between 'Chemical' and 'Physical Barrier' Sunscreens?Physical Barrier Sunscreens
, such as Badger's, create a protective film
on the top of the skin's surface that reflects the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun before it can reach living tissue. The two most common ingredients in physical barrier
type sunblocks are zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. Badger chose to use zinc oxide because it was determined that it was the safest & most effective choice
, and it has been used effectively and safely for hundreds of years.
Ultraviolet light is composed of three wavelength bands:
UVA, UVB and UVC. Only UVA and UVB can reach the earth's surface. The good news is that Badger Sunscreen can block both the UVA and UVB rays.
Since this amazing natural sunblock stick
is in the spectrum of protection that can block UVC light it wouldn't be a bad idea for pilots and astronauts to use it
, since they are exposed to harmful UVC rays.
Chemical sunscreens work, by absorbing UV rays before they can do any damage. The problem is, they contain harmful chemical ingredients that can protect against UVA or UVB, but not both. The biggest danger is that chemical sunscreens are absorbed into the skin, they will more likely cause irritation to your skin and cause other problems.
Why Badger Sunscreen is so Powerful:
- Stays on the skin (even when you swim or sweat)
- Will not run
- Won't drip into your eyes
- Will allow your skin to breathe
- Strong and effective- will protect your skin
- Mild enough not to irritate most skin
Why Use Zinc Oxide Sunblock?
Many people might wonder why Badger chose to use zinc oxide
in their sunblock
. The main reason is that it acts as a physical barrier
that will actually reflect the damaging UVA rays and UVB rays
before they can reach the living tissues of your skin. This is a mineral sunblock and is safer and more effective to use than traditional chemical sunblocks which have been shown to interfere with the body's endocrine (hormone) system.
As you may know, the best way to protect yourself from the sun is to wear a hat or stay in the shade. But, since that's no fun and not always practical, you should protect your family's skin with what we think is the best mineral based natural sunscreen

) on the market.Badger Unscented Sunscreen Face Stick
