Jessica Alba's Billion Dollar Business: The Honest Company

The numbers are very big for actress Jessica Alba’s Honest Company, her consumer products business. Sales, $150 million. Sold online and in 4,400 retail stores. A $100 million Series D financing round that values the company at $1.7 billion. Over 135 products on offer. Almost 500 employees. Launched by Alba when, as a new mother, she worried that her baby would suffer the asthma-related allergies that afflicted her in childhood, the Honest Company began as an individual search for products free from toxic chemicals. Now, she headlines the cover of Vanity Fair as "Founder of the Year" after making the cover of Forbes as one of “America’s Richest Self-Made Women” (estimated net worth: $200 million). I’ve heard Alba speak; she’s all business and then some. She and Honest, a very sustainable business, are the real deal.
