Jessica Alba makes a statement to defend her Honest Company


Jessica Alba has spoken out about the multi-million dollar lawsuit that has been filed against her company, Honest Company.

The actress, 34, says that the allegations of mislabelling several of their eco-friendly products are “baseless and without merit”.

She founded The Honest Company which promotes itself as a company which offers products such as soaps and other household items as being made with only natural ingredients.

Jessica owns between 15 and 20 per cent of the firm which is valued at close to €1 billion.

In a statement posted by Business Insider, Jessica said:

"I started The Honest Company to develop safe and effective products not just for my children, but for families everywhere.

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."

She continued that she knows her children Honor and Haven “are growing up in a safer home because of our products.”

Jessica’s company faced backlash earlier this summer when customer took to the internet to highlight how their children faced terrible sunburns despite using the company’s sunblock.

At the time the company said their productive was not defective, rather that it was “effective and safe for use as an 80 minute water-resistant (FDA's highest rating), SPF 30 sunscreen lotion in accordance with FDA regulations when used as directed."
