Beauty In The Kitchen

Thank to Lori Carlson editor@plamerican.com for the interview.as seen in the Shakopee Valley News
Fiberglass in lip-plumping glosses, petroleum in moisturizers and parabens in shampoos.
Sugar, pumpkin, chocolate, strawberries and honey in facial masks and scrubs.

Which group sounds more appetizing? Even though more people are becoming aware of (and concerned about) the potentially harmful additives in our food, most of us still don’t think twice about scrubbing our skin with harsh soaps or lathering on moisturizers with unpronounceable ingredients. Who knew some of the most appetizing food items in our kitchens could replace those more abrasive products? Becky Sturm and Kris James already know. The Twin Cities women are among those touting the health benefits of using naturally based products on our bodies. Take a quick comparison of olive oil versus baby oil. The latter, derived from petroleum, sits on top of the skin’s surface, while olive and other plant-based oils absorb into the ski…

History of Badger

Carpenters Paul, Anton, & Badger Bill brave the elements, 1989.

How Badger Balm was started...

"Back in the winter of 1993, I was a carpenter with cracked fingers. I spent much of my time banging nails outside in some pretty harsh conditions. I also loved working with herbs and natural remedies. This turned out to be a fortunate coincidence: as fate would have it, I went into my kitchen and made up a batch of what later became Badger Healing Balm. It healed my fingers and a business was born.

I was going to call the first product "Bear Paw" but the name was already taken! At first I was disappointed, but then the name "Badger" came to me, as if in a dream, and I knew it was the right choice. The Badger is a healing totem: The Root Gatherer, with a deep knowledge of the secrets of the root and herb kingdoms; fierce and effective in defense of the self and family, and persistent in overcoming obstacles, successfully seeing projects through to the end." 

Birchbox

Our quote on Birchbox, for a story about "low-pooing".

Go Through the Motions “Just because you are shampooing less, doesn’t mean you can’t still get your hair wet. I actually encourage that you go through the motions of shampooing (just without shampoo). Rub your scalp, and rinse-rinse-rinse.” —Becky Sturm, hairdresser and owner of StormSister Spatique in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Unisex and Travel-Friendly Natural Shaving and Skin Care

Whether you are searching for an effective everyday natural shaving product for your home vanity or a solution that travels with you easily on the road – you are in luck. I had the opportunity to try an innovative shaving product recently: A trifecta of grooming tasks and a neutral scent make it a  perfectly-suited option for guys and gals alike.

Triple Threat
After more than two decades in the beauty industry, StormSister Spatique owner Becky Sturm of St. Paul, Minnesota was seeking a multipurpose beauty product that could do three tasks effectively. She developed the natural, plant-based shhh. bar with the belief that pure solutions are the healthiest options for our hair and skin. The result was a three-in-one bar that’s effective for safely shampooing, showering and shaving. “Not only does the shhh. bar save consumers money and time, but its all-natural ingredi…

Down and Dirty

excerpt from American Spa Magazine.

Long before modern ingredients, people looked no further than Mother Nature to keep their skin looking its best. In fact, the indigenous people of Mesopotamia, which is widely known as the benchmark of civilization in the west, utilized mud and clay for both medicinal and aesthetic purposes, due to its composition of botanicals, enzymes, and minerals. Today, although there are myriad products and ingredients available to help clients achieve softer, hydrated, and healthy skin, treatments featuring mud and clay remain in demand because of their natural and proven benefits. “Mud and clay masks have oil-controlling properties, absorb toxins, and purify the skin,” says Cassie Miller-Hart, west coast regional educator for HydroPeptide. “Minerals in mud aid in detoxification and provide nutrient support to the skin. Mud is a centuries-old, tried-and-true step in beauty regimens for its unique mineral content and healing properties.”
For hundreds of years,…
