Jessica Alba’s Honest Company is known being very conservative and using all natural organic ingredients for their products. But their reputation is seriously threatened by numerous complaints coming in about its sunscreen, that people are saying does not work properly and leaves them exposed to serious sunburns.
Given the heat wave we’re facing lately, lot of people have decided to relax outside, maybe by the pool or simply in the yard next to the sprinkler, with some cold lemonade. It seems that many of these people who bought the Honest Company’s sunscreen lotion ended up having quite tumultuous nights after their fun in the sun, as they were left with significant sunburns, despite the fact that they applied the lotion diligently and correctly.
Gretta Stabler, a Chicago mom even talked to NBC5 about her negative experience with the Honest Sunscreen Lotion. Her daughter got burns all over her body and she is outraged that such a product is available on the market. She believes that it is unsuitable for being sold and that the authorities should correct this matter as soon as possible.
Gretta Stabler was not the only one who found the Honest Sunscreen Lotion to be of extremely low standards, as a sizable social media whiplash followed. A lot of people posted pictures of the “war wounds”, proving that the product really is incapable of providing appropriate protection from the sun. Furthermore, the majority of the product’s Amazon reviews are negative; there are people who consider it to be worse than the cheapest non-organic no name sunscreen.
The suspected cause of the low quality of the product involve the low levels of zinc that the sunscreen includes, but the Honest Company does not seem to acknowledge there is anything wrong with how their product works and that it offers accurate protection if applied correctly.
“Our Sunscreen Lotion was tested, by an independent 3rd party, against the protocols prescribed by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) monograph for over-the-counter sunscreen products,” the company mentioned in an official statement.
It remains to be seen if an investigation will be conducted by the authorities, so as to verify if the Honest Sunscreen Lotion works properly or not. But considering the extent of the online whiplash that the company is facing at the moment, one thing becomes extremely clear and that it that Jessica Alba should expect her company to have very low sale rates this season.
