1. Can you please share with the readers of Branders Magazine a bit about your entrepreneurial journey? Tell us the story behind The Honest Company & Prima. Where did the idea come from? Why did you create the brands?
Consistently throughout my life, I’ve been driven by a desire to empower humans to flourish. Over the past 15 years, I’ve focused on purity and prevention to ensure people had the best access to trusted information and clean products in order to be healthy, happy and safe. It’s been a combination of social justice, environmental advocacy and conscious lifestyle design. But, as with everything I do, it all needs to be grounded in credible science.
With Honest, it started out as a passion project because as an environmental health scientist, candidly, I just knew too much about the body burden (chemicals in our bodies) and was appalled by the questionable, harsh, untested ingredients that existed in the consumer products sitting on store shelves across the country. People everywhere, especially parents, they were searching for one brand, one trusted source, and nothing existed that met my rigorous health and toxicity standards.
