Market jumps: The sustainable lifestyle brand only went public in early May but continues to make jumps on the market
The ethical consumer goods company was founded by Jessica in 2011 and sells products such as nursing pillows, diapers, vitamins and non-toxic household items.
The company also has a beauty sector called Honest Beauty, and all the products are available through their website and also at retail giants like Costco and Target.
After taking the company public in early May it has now been valued at $1.44 billion and continues to make jumps on the market.
On Tuesday the company raised $412.8 million, and has sold sold 25.8 million shares at $16 each, per CNBC.
Solution driven: ‘I realized there was no real answer out there, and the only viable solution was to create a business,’ she said in an interview with Nasdaq of her decision to form the company in 2011
Non-toxic products: As someone who has battled intense asthma, she looked for non-toxic market products after she became a mother but found that her needs were not met with existing consumer products
And she previously shared this month that she created the company to meet ‘a need’ she had as both a consumer and as a mother, after failing to find products she ‘could trust.’
‘I realized there was no real answer out there, and the only viable solution was to create a business,’ she said in an interview with Nasdaq.
Alba — who shares three kids Honor, 12, Haven, nine, and son Hayes, three, with husband Cash Warren — said that her career in Hollywood prepared her for life as an entrepreneur.
‘I had to deal with a thousand no’s,’ she told the Financial Times. ‘That’s a similar kind of circumstance as an entrepreneur. You have to push those doors open, especially as a woman and a woman of colour.’
Mom life: The Fantastic Four actress has been married to Warren since 2008, and the pair share two daughters and a son
