Jessica Alba Net Worth

The 35 year-old self-made millionaire is worth an estimated $340 million as listed by Forbes.

Jessica Alba, an American actor, and entrepreneur is worth $340 million, according to Forbes Magazine. The actor who co-founded Honest Co., a non-toxic home care products company in 2010, was named 42nd in the list of self-made millions by Forbes. The company has now expanded to include makeup and skincare products.

Jessica Alba Net Worth

Alba, born in 1981, started her acting career in 1994 when she featured in The Secret World of Alex Mac. From then she has played several roles in movies and TV series that have seen her win awards and nominations, including Teens Choice Awards.

Alba was born in California, but her family moved to Mississippi where her father’s Air Force career took them. She was a sickly child, suffering from pneumonia five times in one year at one time, a ruptured appendix in another, and partiality collapsed lungs. She says she felt isolated because she was never in school long enough to make new friends. She, however, conquered all that to become the star she is today.

When she was 11, she persuaded her lifeguard mother to take her to an acting competition in California, (where they had moved back to from Mississippi) where she won the grand prize. After taking a few acting lessons, she landed her first acting role in 1994. As it is, the rest is Forbes-worthy history.

The Advent of Honest Company

Alba says she was inspired to start the company after her first child, Honor, was born in 2008. She co-partnered with three others to start the company now valued at slightly over $1 billion. The company deals in non-toxic products from childcare products such as diapers to baby gear, and products for lactating mothers. According to Forbes, the company’s income has boosted the model and actor who was valued at $200,000 in 2015.

Controversial Lawsuits

Honest Company has not stopped at baby stuff. The company now has a range of skincare products under the brand Honest Beauty. Honest Co. has had its fair share of controversy. Honest Beauty’s sunscreen has been challenged in a lawsuit to contain ingredients that are not organic. The $5 million class-action suit claims that there are synthetic ingredients in the beauty products. The suit goes on to argue that the sunscreen is not effective at all.

In a different lawsuit filed by Organic Consumers Association, the company is being sued for its ‘Instant Organic Formula’, with claims that the ingredients used for its production contain properties that are not allowed in organic products.

In both incidences, Alba has come out in defense of her company saying that Honest only uses ingredients that have been certified as organic by FDA. She also stated that the said products (both skincare and homecare) were tested and deemed fit. Both cases are ongoing. The company that Alba helped start is not done yet. They are launching new products for their beauty line. It looks as though the mother of two is not letting the negativity weigh her down.
