I’ve been vigilant in trying to replace all of our household and personal care items with non-toxic equivalents. It’s been challenging. So I was thrilled to find out about Jessica Alba’s business, The Honest Company. It was born out of her frustration similar to mine, finding TRULY non-toxic baby items, skin care and cleaning products.
This is their company pledge that their products are Honestly FREE of: phthalates (DEHP, BBP, DBP, DMP, DEP); PVC; formaldehyde; alkylphenols; benzene; TEA (Triethanolamine); MEA (Monoethanolamine); parabens; phosphates; chlorine; chlorinated or brominated solvents; ceteareth 20; polyethylene glycol (PEG); resorcinol; bronopol; quaternium 15; nanoparticles; triclosan; sulfur oxides; organohalides; hexavalent chromium; DMDM hydantoin; organophosphate pesticides; 1,4 – dioxane; SLS/SLES (sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates); optical brighteners; mineral oil; petrolatum; BPA (bisphenol-A); a-chlorotoluene
Sounds good, I was sold.
I was a tiny bit miffed to find out that I had to give my credit card and get enrolled in their monthly automatic delivery system to sample their products. I could of course cancel at any time, blah, blah, blah. So I paid the $5.95 shipping for their sample pack that included shampoo/body wash, face/body lotion, laundry detergent, healing balm and hand soap.
A few days later the samples arrived in a truly adorable package. I have to say that I loved each of their products. I opted for a full order of their Family Essentials Bundle. The way it works is that every month you get to mix and match five skin care/cleaning items for $35.95 plus you can add in 3 more items at a discounted price. If you opt for the five product bundle you have to pay $5.95 shipping. If you add in the extras and get to $50 in products you get free shipping. Have I mentioned they are very business savvy in addition to making TRULY non-toxic items that come in precious packaging? Jessica Alba, you do surprise me.
I recommend that you check out their website and see if it might be of interest. If you have a baby, they have a non-toxic diaper/wipe deal that looks good.
