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.
