Alba’s The Honest Company was partly inspired by her daughter Honor. The original idea, after the birth of her firstborn in 2008, was to provide an alternative to the huge baby product market, with an emphasis on ethical consumerism.
She eventually launched the company along with business partners Brian Lee, Sean Kane and Christopher Gavigan in 2012 with 17 products and was first valued at $1 billion in 2015.
