Jessica Alba is a triple threat as an actress, mother, and entrepreneur.
Now two years old, The Honest Company makes non-toxic baby products including diapers and household cleaners.
Fallon asked why the actress decided to start a baby company and the answer was simple for the young mum of two.
“I wanted clean, safe, effective products that were affordable and beautifully designed and I couldn’t find that in the marketplace,” said Alba. “… There wasn’t really a family brand that spoke to me as a young mum.”
In addition to diapers and baby products, the Honest Company started rolling out cribs this year which can be converted as a child grows from infant, to toddler, and then a full-size bed for children.
Alba says not everyone thought the family company was a smart move for the “Sin City” actress.
“People thought I was nuts,” said Alba. The actress says people’s reactions ranged from, “‘Can you just do a perfume or something?'” to “‘Baby diapers, really?””
It turns out diapers were a good investment. Alba’s start-up has taken off since January 2012, raising a total of $52 million.
