Jessica Alba Responds to $5 Million Honest Company Lawsuit

Jessica Alba has released a statement to respond to the $5 million lawsuit filed against her business, The Honest Company.

A man is suing the company for “deceptively and misleadingly” labeling products because he claims the products contain synthetic ingredients despite being labeled “natural.”

“Seven years ago, when I was pregnant with my first daughter, I was frustrated by the lack of healthy and safe product options for me and my new family,” Jessica started off her statement (via Pret-a-Reporter). “In fact, prior to launching The Honest Company, I began lobbying Congress to require that ingredients used in everyday products are tested for safety prior to entry into the marketplace.”

“I started The Honest Company to develop safe and effective products not just for my children, but for families everywhere. I am very proud that we have built this company into an industry leader focused on using natural ingredients and developing products that people love,” she continued.

“We believe that consumers deserve to know what’s in their products — whether it’s diapers for their children, cleaning products for their families or beauty products for themselves. Our formulations are made with integrity and strict standards of safety, and we label each ingredient that goes into every product – not because we have to, but because it’s the right thing to do.

The allegations against us are baseless and without merit. We strongly stand behind our products and the responsibility we have to our consumers. We are steadfast in our commitment to transparency and openness.

I know my children, Honor and Haven, are growing up in a safer home because of our products.”

    At the end of the day you can’t except them products to be completely organic for many reasons: first it wouldn’t be profitable at all, second it would not be sustainable for the consumer meaning that that if the product is completely organic it would expire within a week or two ! I like what The Honest company stands for, I’ve never bought their product but I like the fact that she’s making money by doing the right thing and not by selling shitty stuff

    I don’t know anything about her line but right now the U.S. government is not regulating the industry. Make sure you read all of the ingredients on any product you buy that’s labeled natural and/or organic.

    Her company sells overpriced shit and her company doesn’t cancel monthly subscriptions of dissatisfied customers that want to cancel their subscriptions with their company so they can get more money in their pockets. That is beyond unethical and you can read up on that from customers reviews about the company online. There’s higher quality organic lines that are consistently efficient with their products that they actually sell at a fair market prices unlike The Liar Company. And for an organic products company to keep boasting about their market value and Jessica Alba’s net worth just because Jessica Alba is the face of the company is quite sketchy. No other organic lines sold at Whole Foods brag and brag about the value of their company, they let their products do the talking without needing to a hire a good publicist as their megaphone.

    It seems to me that China, India, and other countries, are the “go to” country for Trump; Jessica, and others and consumers are the losers in the end. Paying higher prices for inferior products. What happen to Made in America?
