We all know Jessica Alba as the beautiful, over-the-top star of Sin City and a slew of other blockbusters. But, she's also totally devoted to creating a healthy, nontoxic life for herself and her family. That's why she launched The Honest Company with her business partner, Christopher Gavigan, two years ago. Both parents, Alba and Gavigan saw a need to make safe, natural, and sustainable products for kids, adults, and the home.
Now, Alba juggles the demands of stardom with being an entrepreneur and mom so she supports quick, easy fixes to create the healthiest life possible — but not without giving herself a break. Ahead, we chat with Alba and Gavigan on the origin of their company, their go-to snacks, and how to balance parenting with a totally demanding work schedule. Photographed by Miha Matei.
