Jessica Alba is a bona fide force to be reckoned with—from her impressive film résumé (including iconic movies like Never Been Kissed, Honey, and Fantastic Four) to her wildly successful business endeavors that boast safe, effective products, The Honest Company and Honest Beauty. "I created The Honest Company to help moms and to give all children a better, safer start," she wrote.

Similarly, Honest Beauty includes a comprehensive line of skin, makeup, and hair products that fill a gap in the market. "I really felt like girls (and guys) needed real options that performed but didn't contain a lot of the ingredients that can cause allergic reactions and things like that," Alba told us. "Having no synthetic fragrances and cleaner ingredients really is something I'm passionate about—I do have lots of sensitivities. I do care about what's in and around my environment, and I was always seeking better-working products. You really couldn't find performance and quality of ingredients."
