Jessica Alba's 'Honest Company' Agreed To Settle A $1.5 Million Lawsuit

The Honest Company And STATE Bags Celebrate Back To School With Head Start

Jessica Alba's Honest Company has agreed to shell out $1.55 million in a class action lawsuit settlement for misleading customers about leaving out a chemical from their products.

The actress' company filed to settle a lawsuit claiming its laundry detergent, dish soap and multi-surface cleaner did not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. 

The chemical is a common ingredient used in many household cleaners and can cause a rash in a high concentration.

Honest acknowledged its products contained a 'gentler alternative' to the chemical, but court documents note that the alternative is an ingredient that's included in the original chemical. The lawsuit had been pending for over a year. 

Honest was also sued in 2016 for claiming its shampoo and body wash contained unnatural ingredients despite being labeled natural and non-toxic.
