About The Honest Company
The Honest Company was started by a mom and a dad who, like many modern parents, had become increasingly concerned about poorly regulated products laden with questionable chemical ingredients. But, the alternatives they found were often expensive, inaccessible, bland, or ineffective. In response to this clear need for something better, they created The Honest Company (Honest.com) to ensure that parents have access to non-toxic, ecofriendly, beautiful family products that don't break the bank. They offer a monthly subscription service of customized product bundles delivered directly to your front door and are launching with a product line that moms across country chose based on what they use everyday: diapers, wipes, baby bath and skin care, and home cleaning products.
