The Honest Company's History
Actress Jessica Alba and child health advocate Christopher Gavigan grew frustrated when trying to find their babies healthy products and decided it was time to start a new company dedicated to providing safer (and eco-friendly) diapers, soap and other hygiene products for babies. In less than five years, The Honest Co. has earned a valuation as a near-$1 billion business. It now has over 90 products, but its diapers remain its best-seller.
The Honest Company's Values
The Honest Co. is committed to savvy style, sustainability, extraordinary service and convenience. As its name indicates, building a culture of honesty is paramount to the company. It also partners with several other organizations to help fund research and training to advance the healthy development of young children.
What makes The Honest Company unique?
While The Honest Co. does manufacture some of its products in China, it holds its foreign factories to stringent quality codes. The company also pledges to use only ingredients and materials that meet strict safety standards and are sustainable and eco-friendly.
