10 Celebrities Who Branched Into Business

Jessica Alba
If you subscribe to actress Jessica Alba on Facebook, you probably won't be getting much in the way of celebrity gossip on the possibility of Fantastic Four 3. What you will get are plenty of updates in the new mother's new venture, The Honest Co.

The Little Fockers co-star is founder of the company, which sells healthy, environmentally conscious baby goods.

"When I became a mom, I finally became the person I am, that I always should have been," she says in a company bio. "It's the most satisfying job in the world. But, it can also be overwhelming and confusing. I created The Honest Co. to help moms and to give all children a better, safer start."

On the site, co-founder Christopher Gavigan adds that many parents are "completely unaware of the toxic risks posed by everyday basics, like diapers, home cleaners, body washes and laundry soaps" even though "there's growing consensus that some chemicals used in these products are linked to chronic diseases like asthma, ADHD and even cancer."

Among the baby-safe products offered by the company are diapers, shampoo, bubble bath, sunscreen, dish soap, hand sanitizer and household cleaners.
