We wonder if Jessica Alba should change the name of her business to The Not-So-Honest Company?!
The brunette beauty’s company is being sued — once again — for false advertising, because one customer claims their laundry detergent, dish soap, and multi-surface cleaner all contain sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), even though the brand has promised that their products are free of the problematic cleaning agent.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, Margo Smith has filed a class-action suit in Eastern Missouri District Court against the corporation for misleading marketing.
And only a week before that, Staci Seed filed a similar complaint in the Central District of California regarding the same merchandise.
It’s possible these suits are springing up because a recent Wall Street Journal article from earlier this month raised those exact allegations.
While the actress’ team fired back at the popular publication by saying the cleaning supplies actually include sodium coco sulfate, Margo’s legal docs — filed by Keane Law LLC — say that synthetic detergent ALWAYS contains SLS!
Since September, the Honest Company has been slapped with MULTIPLE lawsuits claiming the corporation has been dishonest when it comes to advertising.
We wonder how Jessica is going to respond!
