Getting Honest with Jessica Alba & Christopher Gavigan

Christopher Gavigan, Me, Jessica Alba

This past Tuesday I was invited to the launch event of Honest.com hosted by Mom Trends at ABC Kitchen in NYC. Stay tuned for a post on ABC Kitchen as dinner was amazing.

 

Jessica Alba & I

The Honest Co. was developed by Jessica Alba and Christopher Gavigan. The event was great and I was able to take a look at their new line and even walk home with some of the products. Both Jessica & Christopher talked to the guests about their new line. I am not a mom but hope to be one day and I truly learned a ton from these two who are both parents.

 

Jessica Alba talking about The Honest Co.

I found Jessica’s story extremely fascinating. Before she had her baby her and her mom talked a lot and her mom said ok you need to wash the baby clothes now in XYZ detergent because that’s what I used for you and bath the baby in XYZ because you did and it’s tear-free and so on and so forth. So Jessica started preparing and washing her baby clothes in preparation of her new baby when her arm broke out in a rash from the detergent. She knew that if she broke out in a rash who knows what it would do to her baby. She knew she needed to do something and create a product that would be healthy for her baby. After chatting with Christopher Gavigan and a few others, they came up with the concept for The Honest Co. a baby friendly line that was non-toxic, green, affordable and convenient for the busy mom on the go. Oh wait and super stylish! The Honest Co. offers delivery right to your door of the products. Not only do they carry baby products but they also carry cleaning products as well.

 

Christopher & Jessica

Both Jessica & Christopher were a delight to chat with. On the day I met them Christopher had just announced on Twitter that he and his wife (actress Jessica Capshaw of Grey’s Anatomy) were expecting their third child. When I congratulated him he was giddy with excitement. I can only imagine what an amazing father he is.

 

Not only were the entire mom’s in attendance at this fab event impressed, but since the launch many celeb moms have been on The Honest Co. bandwagon. Celebrity mom and stylist Rachel Zoe loves this line for her new baby Skylar.

 

And it’s not just for the babies. It’s for adults too. I have to admit I’m a bit obsessed with the Honest Face & Body Lotion for myself. Most of the products are completely fragrance free but the Shampoo & Body Wash has an amazing sweet orange vanilla fragrance that’s just plain yummy while the Honest Hand Soap smells like organic lemongrass. Oh and the fragrance free Honest Healing Balm is the most amazing moisturizer for your lips. Its my new fave lipbalm.

 

And if this isn’t reason enough to check out this new line…. Here’s yet another…. They give back! With every purchase you make they give back to the community. Right now they are working with Baby2Baby.
