Honesty Is the Best Policy

The Honest Company Launches

the honest company!

We don’t usually traffic in celebrity moms. After all, they’re just like us. Changing diapers is changing diapers — no matter whom you are.

But The Honest Company, a new line of nontoxic family products from Jessica Alba, is a rising star worth talking about.

Born out of Alba’s own desires for her growing brood, the suite of Honest Co. products includes all-natural and sustainable bath, cleaning, and diapering solutions — with price points that put organic living within reach of most families.

Diapers and wipes are petroleum free and biodegradable, with a soft cloth feel and modern patterns. The plant-based skin care (bubble bath, body oil) is dermatologist tested, and the cleaning essentials (dish soap, laundry detergent) are chlorine free.

Sign up for a monthly subscription and end late-night drugstore runs for good. The Family Essentials Bundle arrives with all the basics — shampoo, lotion, healing balm, laundry detergent, and hand soap — while future deliveries are customizable based on your needs.

For every product you purchase, The Honest Company donates money to Baby2Baby, a nonprofit that helps children and families in need.

And that’s honest to goodness.

Available online at honest.com. Diaper, bath, and household bundles, $36-$76 a month.
