Even when she’s on set, Jessica Alba is focused on being a good mom – and not just for her own kids’ sakes.
The actress told Self magazine she founded The Honest Company, which makes and sells safe baby and household products, after “I found my daughter Honor sitting in her crib, eating these tiny beads from the inside of her diaper.”
“They were all over her face,” the mother of two added. “It was a moment of terror.”
Luckily, Honor, now 4, was OK, but Alba said she couldn’t help feeling guilty.
“I worried that I'd poisoned my daughter - and these were eco-diapers! … The more research I did, the more irritated I got. Most parents don't have time to do all this research - they need a company with products they can trust. I wanted to create that.”
Alba said it took her more than three years to launch The Honest Company, which donates a portion of its proceeds to families in need.
“When things didn’t go smoothly, I’d get really upset,” she told the magazine. “I worried that I was wasting so much time and money! But my husband, Cash, would tell me, ‘You didn’t waste anything. Look how much you’ve learned.’ His perspective kept me going.”
GABA is taken by mouth for relieving anxiety, improving mood, reducing symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and treating attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is also used for promoting lean muscle growth, burning fat, stabilizing blood pressure, and relieving pain."*....

Jess has solid marriage.
does he cheat on her
she is so hot i would like to eat her beads too!!!!
its none of our business who she is married to and who the h cares...
its seems like its the same 3 people blogging we are aware.
go away..leave the blogging to fun people.
There seems to be a need among people with no CLASS, no INTELLIGENCE, and no KINDNESS to write in with
comments that are not only mean, but incredibly stupid. Why bother? Go somewhere and get yourselves away from
normal people. You are definitely Republicans.
she's with a great guy also so that helps.
i hope she's a good mother..my cousin is an excellent mother and great with her kids. juggles a career, twins, husband no housekeeper and she's got the whole thing in control
Its cool Jessica created The Honest Company..what a great idea:). On the other hand I do think the childs diaper couldve been checked more often. That diaper had to be kinda full for all those (beads) to develope.
you people ruined blogging all summer and hopefully you'll off the sight and let the fun people continue blogging.
who are you people ... low class
Oh my dark angel how you were so spunky and then you blossomed to the hottest ever into the blue. my heart was destroyed when you got married for I picked you over Biel. Ive had hundreds of solo moments with you on pause. But you played it with class and didnt give in. I wish you well and you make a great mom. I will always love you.
Happy her daughter is okay,but she really not cute...sorry just my oponion.Kind of fall in the same catergeory of Kortuney Kardashain son.
thats a new one. lol
Looking at this little one...I bet one needs the Spartan Aroma...lol. Thank you sweet "J€$*$" for pets. Just kidding people. Kids are cool as long as I can give them back..lol
i agree prime rate needs to raise now. when does this all go into effect.
Obama must do what Lee Evan Tabas is suggesting have the FEd raise the Prime Rate.
We need to raise the Prime Rate now.
BAC should fail.
We need a real president and now.
OBAMA is a weak and terrible President.
daughter is adorable ... i do agree she needs to get rolling if she wants to remain in the business.
she needs to devote some time to her career...she's not picking great scripts.
:) you are what's up :)
"You didn’t waste anything. Look how much you’ve learned.’ His perspective kept me going.” – love it. Sometimes its tough to realize that for ourselves.
stay amazing jessica. U bloggers are idiots!
all disposable diapers have polymer beads in them for absorption of liquid.
I'm glad her baby is ok, but what kind of diapers was she using that had BEADS in them?
thats sound like a fairy tales.
do not find this woman attractive at all–i like big t-ts– ..this one is flat with no a-s. not my style.
Seriously?? What an idiot. Get a life. Focus on women you can attain ... oh ... maybe that isn't an option for you. SO back to internet pron for ya I guess.
she doesnt work because she wont do any nude scenes. i want to see her naked! everyone does.
did you call her yet? can't do the butt through the screen.
I'd like to give her another kid, but first I'd like to do her in the butt.
she is a really decent actress..why isn't she working
25 yr old
like what tshirt do i wear tonight.
that biatch wants may shirt ironed.
my friend does it all without a housekeeper...i'm telling you they have perfect system together. its hard but it works.
my friends juggles motherhood and career perfectly...they are on a family system. i have a friend who received her master degree with small children and married. so it can be done
gotta iron my shirt for that over 40 biatch. gotta get a pre nup, she's got a big mouth, too much pressure man
I dont comment on things often, but i have to say two things.
1: ok, yes, thank you to Jessica Alba for founding this company. If they are all as organic and eco friendly products and foods as you say (awesome!). I truly mean that!
2: one very common "celebrity" thing that bothers me is when people go on about how wonderful it is to be a mother, how rewarding, etc...but (if jessica has mentioned this, good for you, i never heard it!) Most of these people have help in the form of baby nurse or nanny and also a housekeeper.
I dont begrudge anyone who has this..it just annoys me that credit isnt given. Kelly Ripa, glen close, julia roberts, tori spelling and grace hightower (and a few others) are the only people i have heard mention and thank the people who help them.
It just annoys me to give the impression that you do it all alone because you don't. It's not "Honest".
is messing up...get her off the system...
