Hi Folks-

I emailed the Badger folks with regards to Gluten and Soy in their products and here was their response:

All Badger products are gluten free and soy free. However, our lip balm sticks and sunscreens are filled at a facility where a natural soy-based cleaner is used to clean machinery. We cannot absolutely guarantee that there is no chance of cross-contamination.



Thanks so much for your interest in our products!



Kind regards,

Thanks for posting this info. So many products that don't contain gluten contain soy and it is hard to find safe lip balms. I know chapstick is safe but I can't stand the 'waxy' feel to it. I will have to look for the badger ones.

I'm still a little nervous about the "soy-based cleaner" for the machinery, but I really like the product and I've been using it for about a week now and feel fine. My thinking is that at least the soy isn't specifically included as an ingredient, and that while I can't guarantee no CC, I'm still a lot better off using this than some other balm with nasty chemicals in them. I may keep looking for another gluten-free/SF balm that doesn't use a soy-based cleanser...I do really appreciate their honesty though!

I just checked out the Joelle site that is advertised here. They have a lot of stuff that is soy and gluten free. They are pretty reasonable in price and I think I am going to try out the foundation and the lip gloss. There was no soy in any of the products that I looked at. Might be someplace you want to check out also.
