About The Honest Company

The Honest Company is a leading lifestyle brand whose mission is to inspire and empower people to live a healthy life.

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 in the marketplace, they created The Honest Company to ensure that parents have access to non-toxic, eco-friendly, beautiful family products that don’t break the bank. Honest diapers, cleaning, feeding and personal care products are designed with delight in mind, and never contain harmful or toxic ingredients.

As a social enterprise and mission-driven company, the” Social Goodness” (CSR) platform aims to build healthy, safe families by investing in the whole development of children ages 0-3 and supporting young people in pursuit of their dreams.

The Honest Company is on a mission to make the healthy and safe choices, the accessible choices for all families.

One of the core goals of The Honest Company is to create a happy, healthy future for today's children and families. We are very proud be an active member of the B Corp community of like-minded organizations who are dedicated to making a profound difference in community, safeguarding people & the planet, and making efforts to be better businesses.

The Change We Seek®

The Honest Company was born out of the desire to provide not only effective, but also unquestionably safe, eco-friendly, beautiful, convenient, and affordable products to homes everywhere. We believe that every baby deserves the best we can create for them.

We strive to embody all of the qualities in a brand we hold dear – savvy style, sustainability, and extraordinary service & convenience all wrapped in a passion for social goodness, tied with a bow of integrity and sprinkled with a little cheeky fun.

We hope to simplify the lives of parents and bring more delight to every day. Our dream is to re-define the "family brand" and create something that's better for all families, everywhere.

We’re committed to helping families, and to do that, we feel strongly that we need to think sustainably. Without our health, without our planet – we have nothing. It's serious business and we're in the business of making it better. Since our inception we've tried to re-think how to create a business that promotes health and sustainability.

We are committed to operating with integrity & transparency, and with humble honesty, as we strive to always create better, do better, and be better.

What makes us a better company?
