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.”
