Jessica Alba's Honest Company Denies Claims Their Detergent Contains Chemical They Said to Avoid

Description

Jessica Alba is coming to the defense of 'The Honest Company'. The actress' consumer goods company is on the defense after The Wall Street Journal released a story claiming the company's detergent contains the compound sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), an ingredient they've previously expressed consumers should avoid. After a chemist revealed findings that show there is a significant amount of the chemical in Honest's detergent the company was fast to fire back a rebuttal. THe company released a statement saying, "To set the record straight, we use Sodium Coco Sulfate (SCS) in our brand's laundry detergent because it is a gentler alternative that is less irritating and safer to use. The Wall Street Journal has been reckless in the preparation of this article, refused multiple requests to share data on which they apparently relied and has substituted junk science for credible journalism.We stand behind our laundry detergent and take very seriously the responsibility we have to our consumers to create safe and effective products."
